Off route. Recalculating.

The glass bottom boat tour in Nassau was fun! We got to see fish and a shipwreck (the Mahoney, which sank in 1945 IIRC). Then I went with Zot & Margo to Paradise Island to see the aquarium at the Atlantis Hotel. There was a manta ray in there!

Later in the evening, the furries got together again. Some of them got in suit and went to the karaoke lounge! Apparently Calamity Coyote Cougar sang "My Way", but I missed that.


Today, however, there's been a change of plans. We were supposed to stop at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean's private resort island, but when I woke up, we were still at sea. It seems the sea around CocoCay is too rough. See, at CocoCay, instead of landing at a dock, the ship uses shuttle boats called tenders to take people to and from the ship, and the sea is too rough for the tenders. So we're continuing on to our next port of call, Key West, and they announced that they'll be refunding us for the excursions in CocoCay we purchased.

Hmm. On the one hand, it's a shame I'll miss CocoCay, where I was going to go snorkeling. On the other hand, I got the chance to exchange my tour of the Ripley's Believe It Or Not museum in Key West for a big 3 excursion (kayaking, snorkeling and, um, dolphining). Also I'll have more time today to catch up on the diary.
