WELCH HIGH SCHOOL
ALUMNI CRUISE

on
ROYAL CARIBBEAN CRUISE LINE
"MAJESTY OF THE SEAS"

Former WHS students reunited for a 4-day Bahama cruise May 21-25, 2001.
  Ports of call included Nassau/Paradise Island, CocoCay, and Key West. 
We sailed from Miami on Monday afternoon.

Tuesday we were in Nassau. 


Atlantis Resort, one of the highlights of Paradise Island/Nassau.  Several of us took the "Discover Atlantis" tour which includes a waterscape with a series of walk-through aquariums, "Ruins Lagoon," a recreation of mythical Atlantis, "The Dig," a replica of an archeological excavation site, and "Predator Lagoon," where we saw sharks, barracuda and other creatures from the deep.


  Wednesday we enjoyed a full day on Royal Caribbean's private island, CocoCay.  People went swimming, snorkeling, sail boating,  or just relaxed on the beach.  The ship's chefs provided an island barbeque.  Since the ship could not dock right at the beach, tenders ran back and forth every 30 minutes between the ship and the island.

Thursday the ship stopped in  Key West.  We visited the shops and art galleries and took some sightseeing tours.  Several stopped in for a drink at  one of Ernest Hemingway's old haunts.

Some went on the Glass-Bottom Boat Tour in Key West

And, yes a few did partake of Key Lime pie on our visit to Key West. Yummy!

Another of our alumni, Carl Hansen, WHS '70, and his wife were on this cruise with us. They had their younger children with them and dined at the early seating.  Unfortunately, we did not get to spend much time with them.   Carl, if you have any pictures to share, please send them to me,
