|Bus Ride to Miami at ungodly hours|
|The boat taking forever to turn around|
|The Carnival Glory docked in Miami|
This was my first cruise and it was just total overload. We sat at the dock in Miami for quite a while with two other cruise ships. When it finally came to the send off party it was pretty amusing. The other two ships took off and were already in full swing with the passengers. We were docked facing the other direction sooooooo the big send off party when we started moving was QUITE the disappointment. We started cruising and went all the way to the end of the channel and it took an hour it seemed to turn around and head out on the real cruise. Bummer!!
|One of the million dollar pieces at Atlantis resort.|
As you enter Atlantis and head to the aquarium you pass through their casino with several of these pieces of art. They are all made of hand blown glass and they paid a million dollars US for each piece. This one was my favorite of them.
We walked through the aquarium and the tanks were amazing. The sea life they have in this resort is just incredible to watch.
|The span on this beauty was over 8 feet long.|

After returning to the boat we headed up top to the lido and got to watch a real send off this time.
