Ever since the cruise industry reopened last June, after being shut down by the pandemic for more than a year, I have been on two cruises to the Caribbean via Celebrity Cruises. The first was on August 14th while the second one was on September 25th, both times on the Celebrity EDGE ship. This ship is one of Celebrity’s newest and largest with a notable feature called the “Magic Carpet”, which is an orange platform protruding from the starboard side of the ship. Meanwhile, the interior of the ship is very contemporary, which is a good departure from the traditional classic look of older cruise ships. Here are some photographs I took around the ship and of our stateroom using my iPhone 11 Pro Max. I also created a video tour of our suite and posted it on my YouTube channel. Here’s the link to the video: https://youtu.be/2lVIQlhzO_M

While cruising out of Nassau, Bahamas, our ship sailed past Paradise Island before heading out for the Atlantic Ocean towards our final destination. At the tip of the island before the open ocean was a lighthouse standing in solitude as if sadly bidding us goodbye at the same time wishing us a safe sail home. Upon further research, I discovered its name as Paradise Island Lighthouse although it is more commonly known as the Nassau Harbor Lighthouse. This piece of architecture was built in 1817 making it the oldest lighthouse in the Bahamas and the oldest surviving lighthouse in the West Indies. I took this photo 2 years ago using my iPhone 5 and is quite impressed by the color quality and sharpness. I can’t wait for the release of the iPhone 7 with hopefully a better camera as it comes very handy on days when I feel too lazy to carry my DSLR around.
