Before we get to Nassau, I have to continue the first night...

Forces Beyond Our Control
The weather leaving Miami was dodgy. We were sailing toward the Bahamas in 10'-13' swells. I don't get seasick, but it was so bad, I was beginning to question that fact. At dinner, drinks were actually sliding around on the table.
We were assigned dinner in the Pacific Dining Room at the very back of the ship. The dining room was pretty. I was hopeful... my favorite part of a cruise is the food.
A whole weekend away? With just the hubs? Yes, please!
Last weekend, Stu's company hosted a weekend getaway for some of their sales guys and a select few clients. We were going to spend 3 nights on Carnival's Victory. I have literally been counting down to this trip for more than a month. I absolutely LOVE cruising - anything on the water really. And a comped trip without the kids, even better!*
*I totally missed the monsters the ENTIRE time. Everything we did, I was like "oh, R & R would love this!"
We were like little kids - giddy with excitement. Stu and I have not been on a cruise since our honeymoon (nearly 11 years ago).
Here's a (very) brief overview of my thoughts on Carnival's Victory.
Stu and I were on it this past weekend for a business trip. (More on that in the next post.)
Let me preface this by saying that I had an absolute blast on this trip.
But, honestly, I was underwhelmed by the ship experience. Stu has said (multiple times) that he will not cruise with Carnival ever again. And I would have to agree.
