We are leaving here about
10 in the morning to head to Charleston. Will spend the day/evening with my daughter and s.i.l. Sunday morning around noon, we will check in and go aboard our cruise ship. Same ship, same cruise as last year. Carnival's Fantasy ship doing a 5 day cruise to the Bahamas. Spending a day in Freeport and Nassau each.
So far weather looks perfect for the duration, though still a little warm for me in the Bahamas, upper 80's.
This year, we plan to scale way back on shore excursions, as I am in much worse physical shape than I was even a year ago. I am concerned about all the excessive walking required on board the ship. Yes, they have central elevators, but still tons and tons of steps and stairs.
The way my hips keep giving out on me, and with as much pain as I have in my legs and feet, just not going to be as mobile as I was before, so afraid of me falling down and breaking something, like my hips.
Like before, we won't be taking any cell phones or computers on the trip. Taking a technology break as well. Plus, they charge $1 a minute to use the internet on the ship, and I would never pay for that. So unless there is a real life or death emergency, we are out of touch until the following Saturday. This way, we feel like we are getting a real break from everything and everybody, and gives us some special dedicated time just to ourselves.
Hope everyone does well this coming week. I will check back in here when we return home.
