We chose poorly when it came to cruise companies. Not by choice and not that all of the companies were single’s cruises, but this particular one was mostly singles. There were a few families, but for the most part, it was a loud partying singles cruise. Oh well, lesson learned! We stopped first at the Grand Bahama Island, the first thing my wife wanted to do was have the cranky boys take a nap, so my daughter and I went on a horse-drawn carriage ride through the town of Grand Bahama.
The water was amazing, clear and just warm. Our next stop was Grand Cayman island. We wandered the island by foot, went on a glass bottom boat and marveled at how clear the water was as we wandered! We had lunch on the island and then boarded the glass bottom boat tour. Our last stop on tour will be covered in a post later on although I have talked about it many times, Xcaret on the island of Cancun.
My last part of this post is the second great family story. My wife and I disagreed about traveling concepts and processes often early on. Even though I flew a million miles over the course of 10 years we still often disagreed. In this case, I ended up being right. We didn’t take the boys car seats with us on the boat. My wife wanted to leave them at Miami’s airport. I tried to point out that it would just slow us down (as we were not leaving from the same airport). But to no avail, I lost the argument but ended up winning the war. When we docked at the end of our cruise, I had to take a cab to the airport we arrived at, get the car seats, come back to the harbor and pick up the family and go to the airport we were leaving from. I was right! Sadly being right meant I had to spend an extra two hours in cabs.
