NCL turns a one day return into two more sea days by traveling at a top speed of 16 knots and that was fine with everytone except my friendís 16 year old who had entered a MEGO (my eyes glaze over) state once we left Nassau. I canít blame the kid because heís too young to drink or gamble and too old for the ďfamily friendlyĒ stuff aboard. Unless you can afford to bring a friend or two, Iím not sure that 15-17 is an ideal age for a sea day heavy cruise.
For the rest of us, the two sea days were another mass of spa time, shopping time and heavy medication laden with fruit and umbrellas. Around the pool deck there were a lot more passengers (male and female) garbed in a way that made us wonder if there was a mirror in their cabins. Seriously??? They canít possibly think that a string bikini or banana bandaid swimsuit look good once youíre over 40. Once elderly lady with long term sun damage resembled an alligator handbag walking upright. Oh well, chacun au son gous.
