Bahamas Cruisin' with Kristen

For graduation, Kristen and I went on a vacation for 4 days to the Bahamas. This is actually the third cruise that we've been on together, but the first cruise for Kristen without her parents (cue 18 year teenager jumping for joy).  This trip was just what the doctor ordered as far as relaxation and unwinding.  Not to mention that it was wonderful bonding time with Kristen before she heads off to college.
We flew out of Baltimore, arrived in Orlando, and hopped an hour long shuttle over to Port Canaveral.  We got the lay of the land on the ship and then promptly found 2 lounge chairs, sat down....and fell asleep until the bull horn went off that we were pulling out of port. 

 At the Theater Show before Dinner night one.
 Our teeny tiny room that actually was perfect.
 Arriving at Cococay, which is a private island of Royal Caribbean.  Much larger straw market than I was expecting since I can't figure out where they lived to run the stores.

 The majority of the day on Cococay was spent lounging.  There was some pretty serious overcast, so it was perfect snoozing weather.  Kinda glad for the overcast because when the sun did come out, it was fierce!
 Our Ship, the Monarch of the Seas.
Formal Dinner Night
 On to Nassau! Arggg!
 Nassau Straw Market.  Definitely a change from when Allison and I were there in December!

 The waters were so crystal blue, this photo doesn't do it any justice.
 On our boat ride over to Paradise Island to roam around the Atlantis.

 Back on the ship, Kristen napped the rest of the day away, while I went rock-climbing.

 Our last night at dinner with our dinner mate.

We had such a fun trip together. I hope that there are many more to come for us!
