Then at about 5 pm a full ship alert went off for a "first stage alert", deck B and that all crew was to respond and the staging area was set up near the medical center. We saw many crew members heading down. About 15 minutes later an "all ckear" was sounded.
Today we are at sea about 500 miles south of our destination and the ship seems to be moving much slower than you would expect. Hope all is OK.
On the good side, since 600 people opted to cancel from this cruise at the last minute due to the change in itinerary, there are nolines for anything and no problem getting lounge chairs.
The food is great and crew as always is wonderful. Just wich more communication from the Command staff on what is happening.
