Carnival Fantasy: In Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

Today’s port of call is Freeport where the most popular shore excursions are all water related (snorkeling, kayaking, swimming with dolphins, lazing on a sandy beach). Of course there is the ever popular shopping experience as well, which is usually my choice. Carnival Fantasy docked early so we headed ashore to explore before the noon heat set in. Even so, it was still hot.

Back on board, I hit the gym to work off some of the calories from last night’s dinner. It was “cruise elegant” night aboard Carnival Fantasy and Captain Costi was on hand to greet his guests and introduce the ship’s officers in the atrium. We’re in late seating and our show was scheduled before dinner—“Nightclub Express” was a must-see journey through the world’s most famous clubs past and present. Very high energy song and dance numbers, exquisite costumes, and most enjoyable.

For the rest of today I’ve picked out the ideal spot to relax on a sun bed in the shade of a bright yellow umbrella on the adults-only Serenity Deck. There’s a nice breeze, my iPod is fully charged, and I have a trashy novel. This is my idea of heaven.
