Based on sightings, he seems to spend most of his time in the forward part of the ship. Finding him however is part of the fun.

I never did get to see him last week.  I looked and looked. Friends finally saw him and got pictures on the last day.

The Ultimate Abyss seems like the ultimate thrill but I had to pass on this when my son exited it minus the skin on his arms Ouch! Note to self...wear long sleeves when attempting this monster of a slide 

 

 

You have to hold the strap palms up like they have in the instructions. It doesn't feel natural but if you do you really cant stick out your elbows.

Formal dining - Lobster tonight! The MDR was super crowded but the staff worked it is like a well oiled machine & we got in and out in time for the show. I love that all the restaurants and MDR are sensitive to allergies.

Short stop but such a lovely day in Nassau & Paradise Island. Met up with cousins at Sharkeez and got an Island tour, caves and craft market followed by lunch by D Waters Cafe. 05121B1A-EAEF-4820-A5AE-49A373B8A20F.thumb.jpeg.552c6d067c5b32a11528e63b1f87673f.jpeg

Dinner tonight in the MDR was great! The best I’ve had there so far. Greek Salad, Tiger shrimp & my fav Creme Brûlée. Between you & me, I went all out & ordered 2 main courses, followed by viewing & buying a picture package.

Day 7 wrap up as I sit in the Promenade by Copper & Kettle listening to music, might head up to Dazzles next. 

Sad news of the trip: I watched 3 people stand on the pier helpless as the ship pulled away. 2 got left behind in Roatan too. 😮

I know that feeling all to well! Last year on the Harmony the same happen to me. It hurt so bad for at least a couple of weeks. DH had to help me place a dressing on my arm every morning while I dressed for work. I have a daily reminder of my time on the Abyss. I did hold my arms as instructed however, my right arm came loose & rubbed against the metal. Don't get me wrong it's a fun ride! I will be packing a long sleeved tee for my ride this year on Symphony!

 

I want to say...Thanks for bringing us along with you & your family on your vacation! I really enjoyed your reviews & pictures .I look forward to hearing from you. Safe travels home!

Did Dazzles have a Filipino cover band?

Departure day blues. Everyone’s walking around in a daze, not enough coffee to make up for the final night 😞.

Disembarking with the Key was great. We could eat anywhere, leave anytime & although our personal escort was MIA, we found the special line by Sorrentos (most crew didn’t seem to know where it was) The luggage 🧳 for Key members was by the Suite & Pinnacle area.

I’ll be doing a separate review for the Key when I’m fully awake.

Settling in for the long wait at Miami airport. Multiple flights cancelled due to grounded planes. Those passengers are now on standby and it’s affecting other flights with delays.

Thank you for taking the time to do this review and for your beautiful photos. I look forward to your review of the Key as it will be specific to Symphony.

I was also on this cruise and brought home an Abyss souvenir.  I held the straps as instructed, but somehow tipped over sideways and went down part of the slide with my forehead rubbing the side.  It could have been worse; I have just two spots about the size of a dime each where the skin was rubbed off my forehead.  And I will be trying it again next time.

Some people on our shuttle this morning were saying that the people left behind had children they had left on the ship.  I hope that is just a false rumor.
