This whole journey started nearly a year ago when my friend Laura (and college roomie senior year) texted me telling me she won a cruise and asking if I wanted to go. What, huh? I didn't even consult with the husband. I immediatley texted back a YES!!!
Since it's a free cruise, Laura and I both have to fly in and out of the same airport. I live in Western Michigan and she lives in Western Pennsylvania. Thus starts my travel itinerary...
Wednesday 11/12 - Work half day, run last minute errands, drive 5 1/2 hours to PA
Thursday 11/13 - Fly with Laura to Ft. Lauderdale and make our way to Miami
Fridy 11/14 - Board our cruise ship and set sale from Miami
Saturday 11/15 - Dock in Nassau, Bahamas - full day in the Bahamas!
Sunday 11/16 - Day at Sea!
Monday 11/17 - Disembark at Port of Miami; fly back to Pennsylvania from Ft. Lauderdale
Tuesday 11/18 - Drive from Pennsylvania back to Michigan
Last week I started working on some plans for us - such as how to get to Miami from Ft. Lauderdale, but more importantly what we're going to do on our day in the Bahamas!
I think we've settled on getting a day pass to a resort on Cable Beach and using their spa facilities. The resort we chose offers a private beach, 3 pools, and 2 hot tubs. I'm just really foward to spending the day on the beach and in the water. After some fun in the sun, I'll be treating myself to a massage at the spa inside the hotel. I cannot wait!
