We were dropped off in the morning at Albany
airport [2 Pictures] for our
direct flight [6 Pictures] to
Fort Lauderdale. After a good flight and an annoying time picking up
the rental car [Picture], we drove across
to Naples [Sign Picture]. The only
pictures from the rest of the day are at Big Daddy and
Granmartha's [4 Pictures].

This was the free day in Naples. It included a golf cart ride for
Katie [3 Pictures], a visit to
see Mary at the beach [6
Pictures, 1 Movie], and a stop to see the
girls [2 Pictures].
Thursday, November 22, 2012
Thanksgiving day. We started at Pat and
George's [4 Pictures], but spent
most of the day at Big Daddy and Granmartha's house, where we had
excellent company and an excellent
meal [42 Pictures].
Friday, November 23, 2012
We started by packing up for the cruise and returning the spite car.
Then it was off to Big Daddy and
Granmartha's [Picture] for the
big family picture session before taking the ride across to Miami to
board the cruise [9
Pictures]. Boarding was fairly quick, and we had some time in
port as more people boarded [9 Scenery
Pictures]. As the sun was going down, Norwegian Sky left
the port and headed out into the
Atlantic [11 Pictures]. A bit
later, we all gathered in the big
cabin [4 Pictures] before heading
off to dinner.
Saturday, November 24, 2012
Our first full day of the cruise included a shore excursion to
Norwegian Cruise Line's island - Great Stirrup Cay.
Tenders [3 Pictures] started taking
passengers to the island fairly early, and we headed over by
mid-morning and spent most of the day
there [17 Scenery
Pictures]. We tendered back [2
Pictures] mid-afternoon [6 Scenery
Pictures][7 People Pictures, 1
Movie], and had an excellent sunset
view [2 Pictures] from the big cabin
before our large group dinner.
Sunday, November 25, 2012
This was the day in port at Nassau,
Bahamas [5 Pictures]. After breakfast
[10 Pictures], all of our
group went on the side trip to spend the day at
Atlantis [25 Scenery
Pictures]. At the end of the day, we made a stop at the hair
braiding stand [10 Pictures]
before clearing border control and walking back to the
ship [3 Pictures of the Port]. In our
cabin, we were greeted by a towel
monkey [3 Pictures, 1 Movie]. Around
sunset, we were back on our way out to
sea [4 Scenery
Monday, November 26, 2012
Travel home day. In the morning [2
Pictures], we got breakfast, then headed to disembark at the
appropriate time for those taking the shuttle to Fort Lauderdale.
We had no problems getting our luggage or clearing customs. The
shuttle waited around for about an hour, unfortunately, but we still
got to the airport in plenty of time for our flight to Orlando then
on home to Albany. Quite a trip - Thank you Big Daddy and Granmartha!
