With it’s long history of hospitality, a stay at this beautiful resort will have you relaxed and wanting to call Ocean Club home!
Ocean Club, a Four Seasons Resort, sits on 34 acres on Paradise Island – which is just over the bridge from Nassau, in the Bahamas. It has a low-key vibe that comes with outstanding service. Add to that a beautiful beach where you can walk in one direction as if all alone on the beach, and the other direction, a bit further down, sits Atlantis Beach Resort in case you need a dose of population.
I just loved the markets we visited in Israel. . .wish I’d had more time to wander through them — and browse – and hear more of the life of the marketplace!
Programs and resources for kids vary from ship to ship, cruise line to cruise line. I was very impressed with the physical resources on the Symphony of the Seas.
Check it out!
And this was a fun way to let kids know where their shoes go:)
November 2018 I was fortunate to be aboard Royal Caribbean’s Symphony of the Seas – one of their Innaugural sailings.
I’m finally getting around to sharing some pix — of this amazing ship. Now, keep in mind — this size ship is not for everyone. But for those people who love shows, music, food, stuff going on all the time — no reason to ever get off the ship (but you should) – this ship is for you!
My balcony view!
This is the interior!
Yes, a merry-go-round
The Aqua Theatre – fantastic show!
These cabins are amazing
Think i captured my husband waiting to slide.
A great show. – Hairspray! Loved it!!!
I admit, I am a little bit of a foodie so i had to wonder a bit around the area in Haifa the morning we left and discovered this bakery. I did buy a few goodies and a few of the date filled donut type cookies actually made it home to my husband . . .in the USA.
We spent a day driving from Jerusalem to Tiberius because enroute we visited Masada and had the opportunity to float in the Dead Sea!
Very soon after leaving Jerusalem the terrain changed and we were below sea level.
First stop was Masada – an ancient fortification which was the former fortress palace of King Herod. It is located on the top of an isolated rock plateau, similar to a mesa and is at the eastern edge of the Judean Desert and overlooks the Dead Sea.

Scale model of what it was during Herod’s time.
In 70 A.D., the Zealots maintained a two-year standoff against eight Roman legions. When Masada was finally conquered by the Romans, it was a hollow victory. Rather than be captured by the Romans, the Jews, approximately 960 of them, committed mass suicide or killed each other.
The path winds up and around – like a snake to the top. . .but another way is to take the funicular.
Next stop, the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth at 1,373 feet below sea level. This sea water contains so much salt, you just float! And it’s true – I am very buoyant and had no trouble floating – in fact i had difficulty turning over to stand up. LOL
In fact, we discovered that synchronized swimming wasn’t too difficult in this sea:)
