The “common folks” living on Paradise Island 

 

And around Paradise Island

 

Pro Tip: if you are taking a sightseeing cruise in Nassau (could be a transfer to the Blue Lagoon or to snorkeling) sit on the PORT (left) side of the boat for the best sightseeing.

Don’t miss the signature Glow Party. Wear your best neon top or white to glow into the night!

What did they do to that lobster!!!!  It's cut in half!  That's no way to eat a Maine lobster.  Good grief.  So wrong...

It’s a beautiful day at sea. If you want to avoid the crowds and loud music on the pool deck, Deck 19 Forward provides a lot of wonderful loungers that wrap to the bow of the ship, providing amazing views. The area has two large hot tubs cantilevered over the side of the ship. There is also a bar for that perfect Caribbean drink.

Well,,, we like our lobster grilled (not steamed) and you need to half it for grilling. (We are obviously not from New England,,,, sorry to offend).

Another hideaway at the very top of the ship is the Deck 20 Forward sundeck. Just loungers and sun!

For those who did the mad dash, they have the private sundeck of the Vibe Beach Club with one of the four cantilevered hot tubs.

You just gave away my favorite (secret) spot. Lol!

I had read about this area before my Escape cruise last July and it is a great area to hang out on sea days.

It's right outside of Vibe and, as you said, there are whirlpools and, most importantly, a bar!

There's also a misting machine that people can walk into and it sprays cool water every minute or so. It's somewhat refreshing if you don't want to make the 60 second walk down to the pool area.

This spot on deck 19 is never too crowded so finding loungers is pretty easy at anytime. There's also some comfy chairs by the bar, right outside the door to Vibe.

I'm sailing Encore in January and hopefully the area will be similar, even with some things being moved around.

Thanks for the review!

Honestly, I've never had it grilled.  Always either boiled or steamed. It's how we do it up here.  Since I'll never spend $25 on a 1.25 lbs lobster, guess it will be a long time 'til I try it grilled.  (ETA: I totally understand that is a typical price for lobster elsewhere and know I'm spoiled when it comes to lobster pricing due to where I live.)

 

Thanks again for the pictures and the play by play of your cruise.

This is the second time I've noticed one of those sight-seeing gizmos on the Waterfront. Does it charge quarters or are they free??

Thanks!

Less than 150 days to go!
