My first Cruise
Have you ever been on a cruise? September 2006, my friends and I decided to go on a cruise vacation to The Bahamas. Eight people went together, and we all felt fantastic, happy, and relaxed on this trip. For me, this seven day vacation was an experience that I never had before.
The night before we went to the cruise, I wouldn’t sleep for the whole night because I was very excited. I felt very tired while we were going to the port on 53rd Street on 11th Avenue. But I was shock and suddenly woke when I saw a big boat in front of me, and then I yelled out: “I couldn’t wait to go around the ship to see how beautiful it is.” After we checked in and put our luggage into room, then we took a handbook to look at the details about the ship. I realized that the ship has thirteen decks and carried 1,996 passengers each time. The ship has 1000 different type staterooms for customers to choose between the fourth deck to the tenth deck. The fourth to fifth deck were the inside rooms and had no window. The sixth to tenth decks including ocean view rooms that have a mini window for guests to look out at the endless ocean, and then there are rooms with balcony and suit. In addition, Norwegian provided different entertainment rooms, restaurants, lounges, nightclub, conference rooms and playgrounds for guests to enjoy on the decks between seventh to thirteen.
When I got to the top deck, my eyes were busy to look around and took pictures at different angle of NYC. About four o’clock, the boat announced a sound and started moving. People began go up to the top deck to take beautiful New York landscape pictures. Some people quickly moved to the right hand side deck because they wanted to have a spot to take pictures with Statue of Liberty. After the boat sail passed the Statue of Liberty, all the dancers, singers and on board workers were came up to the top deck with a big cake to celebrate for a new couple’s wedding. After that, we wouldn’t wait to walk...
