Cruising – Day 3

When we woke up this morning the ship had already moored at CocoCay which is a private island in the Bahamas. It’s the Royal Caribbean Group that owns it.

We took a slow breakfast and then went ashore. We saw that Oasis of the sea also had moored. Our ship can host 2490 people and the Oasis can have 6200 people. The island isn’t big but we decided to take the tram around to see everything before deciding where to go. We ended up on the south beach.

As none of the ships carry more than 50% of their capacity it wasn’t crowded on the island. Plenty of seating at south beach and when we decided to move on later in the day we found new chairs.

As the island is owned by the cruise line food and drinks are free just as in the ship which is convenient as you just have to carry your sea pass.

After enjoying the sea we went to try the biggest fresh water pool in Bahamas. It was big but still just a pool 😊

Shortly before 4 o’clock we went back to the ship. It was nice to get out of the wet swimsuits. A shower and then we went to deck 13 to enjoy the view while waiting for dinner time.

Tonight we had booked the new Japanese restaurant Izumi. It was a lovely sunset while we got our food and enjoyed it. It was by far the best sushi I’ve had. We will go back again tomorrow or Friday as it was soooo nice. The food the other days have been excellent as well but this was outstanding.
