Checking in for the flight to Fort Lauderdale and the Inaugural Cruise on the Odyssey of the Seas
A very busy day. It started with a flight from Houston to Fort Lauderdale. Once onboard the Odyssey of the Seas I enjoyed a delicious surf and turf lunch, explored a large variety of cabins and watched the naming ceremony. After the naming ceremony I enjoyed two high tech live shows and another fabulous dinner (surf and turf again).
A beautiful day in the Bahamas. I started the day with a Q&A session for travel agents. I took the opportunity to play with the bumper cars before visiting the waterpark at Thrill Island. I tested out all the waterslides, including North America’s tallest waterslide – Daredevils’ Peak. I explored all of what the island had to offer and then came back to the ship for a couple of shows and dinner. The night ended with a silent party.
Time to leave this beautiful new ship. I had a quick snack at breakfast and took a few last minute photos. Unlike the Carnival Mardi Gras the pool chairs were not overrun by towel critters. I took the free shuttle bus to the Miami airport and flew back to Houston on Southwest Airlines.
