  1. Wife surprised me this year for our 20th anniversary ……. another cruise to Bermuda on the Explorer. Although I like the EOS, and like Bermuda, not too sure how I was going to be three times out with the same ship and itinerary. I also wasn’t too happy with the room assignments, so I rebooked it from scratch. We had a JS the prior year, and found this type room perfect for us, only there were no triples left. I didn’t wish to try a D1 again, as I found these too small, so I started looking at owners suites when the TA comes though with a cancelled corner aft on deck 10 (1688). I was quite familiar with this room as I had oft read about it, so I booked it without going back and studying all things about it. Seems it’s one of those secret D1 rooms that are configured differently, with a deep and extended and weird balcony. Eventually, I did visit webshots, and it was even different than I remembered, plus I knew wife hated aft cabins, but I figured I'd just cross my fingers. From there, it was a visit to a little frequented roll call on CC, but that was OK. EMBARKATION: Being this year the ship was leaving on a Saturday, I wasn’t sure what we would hit, so we aimed to arrive at the pier at 10:30. Hit no traffic then entire trip, so we were there in something like 37 minutes. Place was pretty quiet, and it seemed the previous debarkation went fast. Took my obligatory pic of the ship from the parking spot, and made our way back to the terminal. Checkin was pretty empty as well, and we were quickly processed. We were handed a boarding pass with the number 4 on it. Looked like we were going to get on board early this year, and we lucked out. We were on the ship before noon. Headed straight for the Windjammer, and then out to the pool to claim our usual seas. Took the obligitory EOS sign hanging on deck 12. At 1:30 we made our way down to our room. Somewhere in between I dropped on DW our room location and type. I thought it would come to fist to cuffs (whatever that means), but it passed quickly, especially when we opened the door...... Stay tuned......
