Had a fun evening for Chic night.  Last night was Lobster night. We closed Luminae again then stopped by Casino for Marcia to burn off some OBC.   Didn’t tsk long and she left wit $50 cash out of $300 non-refundable.   

 Amazingly the casino has been packed.  You can hardly walk through it.

Enjoying your terrific blog, as usual. Love Infinity! A great idea to sail for 5 days to get all settled in for the Transatlantic. Good luck on your first eastbound! We’ve sailed an equal number in both directions. Each direction has their pluses and minuses. And in 2016 we sailed the westbound Transpacific, so next week will sail the eastbound to “even everything out”!

Looking forward to all those sea days. 

 

 

 

Well after 30 years together I think I’ll keep Iain around for another 30. 

 

“And they said it would not last,” our daughters  are going on their 20th..

I wish you 30 more in good health.

Congratulations to both you & Iain!

Johnny & I hit 17 (Married 14 as of Summer Solstice) - I do not believe 30 more is likely... 

Shooting for 35 Year Wedding Anniversary in 2040...

 

Your first Nassau photo is Gorgeous

Really enjoying the short cruise but so glad we are not getting off the ship tomorrow.   Everyone is starting their packing and settling their accounts.   Nassau has been such a treat.   Perfect mid-70's and very low humidity.

Thanks much.   It is hard to believe 30 years has flown by.

Any ideas of what to do in Nassau?

 

Many went to the beach or to Atlantis (and buy a day pass).   We have been to Nassau so many times we originally didn't plan on getting off the ship but ended up walking around town.   The weather has just been perfect.

 

On of the favorite things we did in Nassau was "Swim with the Dolphine's"    There are limited spaces available and suggest booking early directly with the owners.    The have both the Swimming, where you get in wet suites and are in the water with the Dolphin's and even  body surf with two dolphin's propelling you,  they have the more common visit which is dolphin encounter where you just sit on the edge and can interact with them.

I don’t believe I have ever noticed a new monitor in Ocean View Cafe with a location map of the food layout

Interesting that there are new loungers but no tables for your drinks, books etc.  I have been following the updates from the "Revolution" and this seems to be the way of the future.  How are you to get on them?  Climb up from the bottom??  I guess there thinking is with more loungers there will be less issues with chair hogs.  Really need the small tables !!

It's 6:30 pm and we just departed Nassau.    They had a small sail away party for suite passengers and Zenith's on the Heliport.   Perfect weather and a beautiful departure.  

 

We just packed up our room, as we have to change rooms on turn around day.

I asked for a breakdown of the daily gratuities. Thought it would be helpful to others.

This shows drinks at 18%. Hasn't it risen to 20%?

 

Oh and loving the live review👍🍸

It is 20% as you stated.   Celebrity didn’t update it.  It really surprised me how little the stateroom attendants make.

We arrived Fort Lauderdale about 6:00 am. 

We met Marcia in Luminae at 7:30 for breakfast.    Had a yummy Eggs Benedict.   

 

Was sad saying good bye to Marcia. 

 

Walk off began at 7:45.  

 

It’s 9:00 and calling numbers 14-19

 

 

Reflections on sis in port using Terminal 25 and we are in 19.

So lucky to be able to retain a fantastic butler.

Have a safe and fun crossing and please keep posting since we all seem to be enjoying.

There are some good butlers on.  We also bumped into Rene who we have had twice.   He is handling Sky Suites on deck 6 starboard.  

 

The one  we have is just so good.   We feel really pampered.
