Holiday-time Cruising: We Love It!

Its that time of year again!  Here, in the U.S., most people are hustling and bustling in the name of Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa.  On Thanksgiving Day, the mayhem begins. People shop, shop and shop like there’s no tomorrow, for the latest gadgets, fashion finds, baubles, cars, pets, you name it!  Not us!  We start looking for our ticket out of here!  Our preferred way is to take a week-long cruise to someplace warm, sunny and away from shopping malls and traffic.  This year, we chose the Norwegian Sky’s cruise from Miami to Grand Bahama Island, Nassau and Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s Private Island).  As commercial and as crowded as this may sound, it was far from it, and proved to be the perfect “escape” for us.  Perfect!

With our backpacks, sunglasses, suntan/block cream in hand, and our Samsung Galaxy 6 and Galaxy 6 Note on airplane mode and for photo-taking only, we were off!
