Hello! My name is Dale, and this is my girlfriend, Ellen. We're from Kansas, Junction City. We drove from Kansas down to Florida, met the ship and parked our car at the harbour, at the port and then we jumped on board, and we had a wonderful night. A day and a night down to the island of the Bahama, and we had a wonderful time on the boat, the ship. We moved over to the island, the Grand Lucayan hotel where we stayed and we had the 7th floor. We had a balcony that overlooked the ocean, so we had a wonderful time. I mean, it was beautiful. Some days were rainy, some days were cloudy and it all turned out, it all moved too fast. There was really no threat, although the hurricane Herman was all around us and everything was fine. We had wonderful time at the China Beach Restaurant and the Willy Brodly restaurant, and then Hour East Restaurant around the corner. Across the street was the market place where we did shopping. The people were beautiful. We had a wonderful time, there was no fear, no apprehension of any haggling or.. the people were really friendly on the island. We went to the bonfire & we did snorkelling, and we did parasailing, we had a great time with all that. We're on our later 50's, so it was plenty good for us, it was plenty safe. We had a wonderful time, I mean this is our first time on a vacation like this and we'd love to come back. We would like to stay longer, but we're not able to. So, we're looking forward to coming back again and doing the exact same things we've done this time.
