This was my bucket list item for my ‘twins’, Matthew and Morgan, to go on a cruise with us before they went off totally on their own and would be too embarrassed to be seen with us on a vacation or for that matter anywhere!
We drove to Charleston to spend the night there before we boarded the ship on Monday morning with the port of calls being Nassau and Freeport. While in Charleston with the intention of walking around the old town and sightseeing, the only thing we saw were umbrellas that were trying to hold off the heavy downpour of rain that welcomed us to the city.
The cruise was relaxing with plenty of food and booze (just ask Matthew) along with excursions to the private beach
that the Carnival cruise line owns and then the Atlantis resort to have a round of drinks (I took out financing for 36 months without any finance charges.) 🙂
Matthew thought it would be fun to play Texas Hold ‘em on the ship where everything was digital: the dealer, the cards, the chips. Sadly for Matthew the money was real and lost about $400 over the course of the week. Then he decided to lose his lunch after a night out with some friends. Can’t win them all!
