We didn't do anything special to mark this lovely occasion today (we cooked dinner at home and took a long walk together), but we have been looking forward to our first anniversary in June. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we decided to take the plunge and book a cruise to the Bahamas!
On June 3, we'll be setting sail on the Carnival Sensation, leaving out of Port Canaveral. This will be my first cruise out of this port (previously I've left out of Tampa), and I actually hear that it's pretty nice (more like Tampa than Miami, which I hear is a bit of a nightmare).

We're going on a 5 day, 4 night cruise, which will be ideal for Pete's first cruising experience. I took extra effort to choose a cruise ship that had lots of fun amenities: waterslides, mini-golf, a casino, a sushi bar... all of the things I know my hubs will go ca-razy for (and I will certainly take advantage myself). There's even a spa, so maybe we'll book a couples massage too (I hope, I hope!).

Have any of you been to Nassau or Freeport before? If you have, what fun things should we do while we're at port? We are thinking of doing a snorkeling excursion in one of the ports, but weren't sure what else was available. For our day at sea, I plan to spend a good chunk of the day lounging poolside with a great book, my iPod and many delicious cocktails. A girl's gotta stay hydrated!
