Cruise Critic. It was half the price of the ship excursions. $52 per person & that included transportation to & from the port & all you could eat & drink.
So pretty! In keeping with the rest of these blog posts about the trip. Here's a picture of a drink.A pina colada. It was good but better when we requested that they make them with Malibu Rum instead of dark rum. It was Fat Tuesday so we were wearing our beads like good little Louisianians. Dean & Brad having a beer.
Maya Chan website that they have drinks in coconuts. Well, that has my name written all over it. I'm all about tropical stuff. The only thing that would've made it better is to have a little umbrella in it. We had our own little private bar & bartender. His name was Hugo. I asked Hugo about the coconut drink & he said "Oh, a Coco Loco". Yep, that's what I want & I don't care what it's made of. So, he hollers to another little guy in spanish & the next thing you know the guy is chopping down a coconut.
Then he brought it to Hugo & Hugo made the drink.
It was really good. I asked what was in it & it was a bunch of coconut stuff. Malibu Rum, coconut water, coconut milk & I don't remember what else. After you finish the drink they'd chop the coconut in half so you could eat it. I've never had fresh coconut like that but it was good. Me & Suzy enjoying our drinks.
After my massage was lunch. AMAZING!!! There were chips & guacamole, soft tacos, chicken, pork & beef & sauces to go with it. Sooooooo good. I swear it was some of the best food I've eaten. The only problem I had was I put a bunch of sauce on my tacos before I saw that it said "spicy". Oops. Yeh it was hot but still DELISH! They even had Dr. Pepper. How random is that? After lunch I had another pina colada for dessert & chilled in the hammock with my Nook.
I'm sure you know where this is going. I ended up taking a nice nap in that hammock & woke up with a weird sunburn because of how my arm was laying. It wasn't bad but I have a weird spot. Another view.
This was our bar.
The port in Costa May is so pretty. You could actually spend the afternoon there at the pool.
Once we got back on the ship we had to get dressed for dinner. Our cruise line was Norwegian & they have several specialty restaurants that you can pay a cover charge to go & eat. We were going to Cagney's, the steakhouse. This was the one night we got all dressed up & I just realized I have no pictures on my camera from that night & I don't remember if anyone else took any. Everything was so good. This welcomed us back to our room after dinner. Is it a bunny??
