Those who have followed my “LIVE” reports with RCI, X, NCL will know that I plan to post daily reports of life on board the ship through my eyes. . .
There should be plenty of pics daily, as long as I am able to maintain a valid wireless connection. We will be in Bermuda for 2 nights, so I am crossing my fingers for good weather for 3 days. The Royal Advantage upgrades are not scheduled until next year so there will be no pervasive Wi-Fi connection in my cabin. I will probably use the Connoisseur Club on Deck 5 or the 19TH Hole Sports Bar on Deck 14.
Explorer of the Seas will be the first Cruise Ship to dock at Kings Wharf this year. There have been a couple of port calls scheduled last month in Hamilton. Oceania Riviera was scheduled to dock at the Heritage Wharf pier (right next to us on Wednesday), but the Heritage Wharf pier is being worked on to get ready for the Inaugural Bermuda sailing of Norwegian Breakaway next month.
I feel bad for the passengers of Riviera that will have to tender in from the anchorage at Grassy Bay (just north of the Maritime Museum)
I haven't been to Bermuda on Explorer of the Seas since September 2010, and it will be nice to sail on such a beautiful ship to such a beautiful destination. That “LIVE” report can be viewed HERE.
I will begin my drive shortly up I-95 to my Hotel in Elizabeth, NJ for my pre cruise stay where I will be just a few miles from the Cape Liberty Cruise Pier in Bayonne, NJ. I know there will be a couple of choices for me to stop for a delicious cup of Starbucks before I get to the pier.
The check in process should begin around 10 AM on Sunday, and boarding should begin by around 11:30. We are scheduled for sail away by 4PM.
The forecast for tomorrow is 61F and sunny . . . I should be able to get a glimpse of Norwegian Jewel, as will be sailing from Manhattan tomorrow for a 7 NT sailing to the Bahamas.
I am really looking forward to sailing Explorer of the Seas again, and I am really looking forward to Bermuda. Sit back, and have a coffee. . .this should be lots of fun!
Thanks for tuning in. . .
