Hello everyone. . . The sailing so far has been very smooth. I have read many reviews that were written by passengers over the last several months. It seems that there has been a lot of rough seas during this Baltimore to Port Canaveral leg of the cruise. That has not been the case so far. Yes, you can tell that we are out in the ocean, but there has no been the swells, and rolls that I would have suspected.
Our weather today was sunny, and warm (83f), and we should be arriving in Port Canaveral by 7AM on Wednesday.
I went down to the Ports of Call talk today. There was a lot of explanations about the different excursions all week. The Cruise staff gave away one excursion for each of our 3 ports this week.
We had lunch today in the Dining Room, and it turned out to be extremely good. Several of us had California Roll Sushi, and I loved it ! (I should have ordered another. . . We stopped into the Raphael Lounge (Deck 3) for some trivia, and we discussed that we should take a quick nap if we wanted to stay up for the shows tonight (LOL). . . .
There is the Wonderful World Show tonight, in the Taj Mahal Showroom, and Adult Comedy later at 11:45PM.
The Captains Celebration is tonight, along with the Senior Officers introductions down in the Atrium before Formal night dinner at 6PM.
We are currently 470nm from Port Canaveral, and are sailing South at about 15nm/hr.
Thanks for tuning in. . .
I spent a lot of time outside this morning, just enjoying the sunny skies
We will be enjoying Dinner tomorrow night in David’s Steak House (under the see-through funnel)
The seas were wonderful today !
We are looking aft over the Poseidon Pool
I have to try that big Twister Slide !
There are already Christmas decorations up throughout the ship. This is the Renaissance Atrium.
