    Default First DCL Trip -- Day 3 -- Nassau and the Great Dolphin Encounter

    December 8, 2008

    Woke up around 7 to us being about 5 nautical miles out of Nassau. After going to breakfast in Tritonís, I go up to deck 10 and watch as the ship spins around to dock. I then get ready to go for my dolphin encounter. I meet the guides in Studio Sea, get all checked in, and then we are off!

    Got some snaps of the ship before I get to where I canít see her, and get onto the ferry that would take me to the Blue Lagoon island. The ride was cold and uneventful. After getting there and viewing the instructions provided, we went and put our stuff in lockers, then went to meet the dolphins. Boy, was the water cold! I didnít let it bug me, and I eventually got to meet the dolphin, it kissed me on the cheek, then we went around again pet it and then hug it. After all that, we get to dance with the dolphin!

    I purchase a 5x7 photo of the encounter, then I hop on the available boat back to the ship. When I get back, I head for Pinnochioís pizzeria for some grub, and grab a drink from the station. A quick shower later, and I was swimming in the quiet cove pool, and enjoyed the hot tubÖmmmm.

    Thanks to an announcement by Clayton, I found that Jim Shore was aboard. Iím going to have to pick something up for my DS and have it signed on the at sea day. Then, I enjoyed Toy Story Ė The Musical, and then some bingo before dress up dinner at Tritonís.

    After Tritonís, I go back to my room to change and then go see Jeff Civilico in Wavebands for the adult show. Quite hilarious! Took a stroll up on deck 10, then called it a night before the next port of call, Castaway Cay! Woo hoo!!!

    If your photos are in a public forum such as webshots, we do allow links in Trip Reports. The photos would, of course, need to be family friendly.

    Your encounter with the dolphins sounds like it was really fun!
