We are in Nassau, Bahamas, aboard Freedom of the Seas. What you see on the dockside below is a pair of giant cranes that will move equipment ashore to be used to help divers remove four, two tons (each!) propeller blades from the ship.
Stay tuned! This is quite a process. More images to come tomorrow....

Earlier this month we had a very unusual visit to Nassau, Bahamas, aboard Freedom of the Seas.
The lighthouse above is at the entrance to the port.
I have an amazing series of images to show you over the next few days as four huge propeller blades were removed by divers.

I only go to Johnny Rockets aboard Freedom of the Seas when our daughter is on board. If I went any more often than that, I would have to be taken off the ship as cargo!

We shared the port of Falmouth, Jamaica, with Navigator of the Seas, one of our sister ships.
Navigator of the Seas is a similar design, but slightly smaller ship than Freedom.

We enjoyed another lovely, delicious meal...

Christmas in the U.S.V.I. looks and feels very different than it does to us at home in Ohio!
Gosh, it's warm here, but we still have lovely decorations. The Christmas tree in this image is at Havensight Mall at the dockside in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I. Note the shirtless young man on the right side of the picture. Gotta love it!
All the best,

Our friends, Martha and Russell (right), cruised with us for three weeks. The final week our Aunt Carol and our daughter, Catherine, also were on board.
Martha and Russell were kind enough to share a bottle of Champagne with us at a casual lunch in the Windjammer aboard Freedom of the seas. They have done this numerous times and we so enjoy our lunches together.
All the best,
