Default Romantic getaway for two in the Bahamas

My botfriend and I are going on a cruise Sept. 9th with my parents before our son is born, a last chance vacation as a couple, not a trio. He has requested that we spend some quality alone time together in the Bahamas, watching the sunset on a fairly empty beach sort of thing. I have a few ideas, but am having a very hard time finding information. I was thinking we could take a water taxi to Paradise Island and visit Cabbage Beach(it is supposed to be one of the most romantic places), but I am having a great deal of trouble finding out how close the taxis are to the ship when it docks, and how much it costs to get on Paradise Island and Cabbage Beach. I will be six months pregnant on the cruise, so walking more than a few blocks is out of the question for me, and I can't find a decent map to see where the jitnies are in relation to both the cruise docks and the water taxi's docks. If anyone has been to Nassau and has attempted this, could you please tell me how to get there, and how much it ran you?

The taxi's will be right at the dock as you disembark the ship. As far as watching a romantic sunset, that probably won't happen. You will have to be back on the ship before sunset. Paradise Island isn't that far away and is definitely do-able.

Thanks, Bob. I apologize, I didn't realize you were in port until midnight.

Very funny dad, last time I went for the romance I wound up pregnant, but I guess that can't happen again for at least another few months huh?

They make those now? No wonder he acts all romantic, you have him programmed right. I am just teasing you, I couldn't resist. I am a typo queen, so I had to razz you a little.

, I can't believe I made that typo, although now that you mention it, he is a little too perfect. Maybe I should watch to see if he drinks motor oil.

Thats ok Loki, You can call him your boyfriend, and ect. In time, he'll learn to answer to alot of names

I do the same with my wife even after 27 years of marriage. She's got names like, my girl friend, my lover, my first wife, and ect.

Have a great cruise ;
David
