We are underway having departed Fort Lauderdale at 9:00 pm on Tuesday evening. The weather is warm but rainy and very windy. For the past 12 hours the wind has been over 60 kph making for a very bumpy ride. The ship is very stabilized but you do need to establish your sea legs as you walk sideways down the hall. Has not stopped us from enjoying all the ship has to offer from a food and beverage standpoint. Last night’s sail away party was a great start.
Below are pictures of the Crow’s Nest which overlooks the bow of the ship and is a great vantage point to see dead ahead and shots of the carpets which keep reminding you of where the front and the back of the ship are located. They are also colour coordinated to port (red) and starboard (green).
The front and back of the ship? David, nautical terms, please.
Hi David and Susan,
Glad to see you are off on your adventure. Look forward to following your blog!
JE and Michèle
Bon Voyage! Guess you know how FREEZING it is here in Ontario!
David & Susan:
So glad to hear from you! We will be following your travels closely and will experience your adventures vicariously through your blog. We miss you both. Best wishes for another great round-the-world cruise.
