MS Westerdam & MS Amsterdam-Sail Away-Jan 4, 2014

Recommended Posts

It all sounds exciting! you must be getting really excited :D

 

I am but I am also in kind of a state of denial. "Could this really be happening?' I have thought about it and planned for so long it just does not seem real!

I'm here....just being quiet.... wishing I was onboard one of those beauties!:)

 

Right now there's only one beauty I'm wishing I could be on (but I will be when it returns to Ft. Lauderdale). Tomorrow there will be another beauty I wish I could be on (2 really, 1 in FTL and the other in Miami).

We decorate 3 Christmas trees and nearly every room in the house has decorations.

 

DH won't let me decorate his bathroom.

 

Thanks.

Have to start taking down decorations today, have some in each room.

I'm back - took a break to run a card and gift down to my son in law - it's his birthday today, and they live at the end of my street. Looks like I didn't miss much.:)

Probably an Auburn- lots of hype with championship game Monday between Auburn and Florida State.

 

Wrong color for Auburn. Mostly Likely Alabama if not Arkansas.

Yes. Going to Kiwi 360 to taste kiwi fruit (which I love), to a Maori cultural centre, a natural geyser, and to "Kiwi House" and a walk through "Government Gardens" as well as scenic driving and maybe a couple of other places.

 

Sounds like a long day.

Sorry, but not Auburn's logo is an A and a U superimposed and is orange and blue. Alabama is red and white like the banner. Also U of Arizona is red and black and white... Also like the banner...

 

Thanks...was walking around house and just speculated. Never saw the towel.

You didn't. No one seems to want to go first again today.

Luckily, we do not have many back to back port days, so I should be rested up for this. The next day in Auckland might be tiring and then we go to the Bay of Islands.

Though I prefer Noordam, right now any ship heading to the Caribbean would suit me just fine..... way too cold here and I'm getting cabin fever!

We usually don't take everything down this early, but with several doctor appointments and my having a spinal epidural on Thursday, wee thought we best get started.

I've never been on a Princess ship - it looks like they have a wraparound promenade deck, too. Anyone know for sure?

Hope you enjoy your visit to the North Island.

I've only been on 3 of them - but they did have decks when I was on. Caveat - the last one did me in so I haven't been on for a number of years. Once bitten twice shy;)

Hi,

 

Princess does have a wrap-around deck but at the bow you have to go up a few stairs then it flattens out then you go down a few stairs. Since DH uses a scooter this means he can't go all the way around like he can on Holland. I'm being quiet but am here and watching the sailaway as I do emails and putter! You're right - it is a bit slow today. I should be here for the Amsterdam - we're on it (if all goes well) for two weeks in late June. Can't wait!!

 

Karen
