I will miss the sail in for both.  I will be driving to Milwaukee, WI for Irish Fest.

Depending on when Amsterdam arrives - I might miss her. But her normal times will probably get me a viewing,  Doctor's appointment is never a certain ending time.

A'dam is currently anchored (!!??) off the southeast coast of Douglas Island.  Weird!  I've been on that same cruise a few times -- and getting ready to do it again week after next -- and I don't ever remember being anchored anywhere (except at a tendering port).

Disney Wonder is near Thane.  Amsterdam is still anchored.  The webcam is NOT panning today.  I have a dentist appointment and will likely miss Amsterdam but be here for Volendam.

It's just 5:30AM in Juneau.  Amsterdam typically heaves anchor and leaves at 6.  Perhaps you were asleep then.  Have a GREAT cruise.

I have a feeling yours will be better than mine but a cruise is a cruise.

Hope it is nothing serious.

 

Joe had his teeth cleaned last week and lost a filling in the process -- 2 1/2 hours later it was all fixed.  Yesterday he had a really old filling fall out -- dentist is out of town so it won't be fixed until Tuesday.

Ouch!  Mine is a replacement for a missed appointment where the dentist cancelled me for an emergency patient.

At least the Amsterdam will get in close enough for some view.  Does she usually dock port or starboard to?

Port, in my experience (always needs to back out 😀).  Ooops, meant starboard!

Usually with Kathi's deck - right up front - and center.

When she finally comes into view it'll be 0800 here and I'll probably miss it 'cause I'll have to take a timeout and call the upsell folks.  I've been offered one that might be acceptable, depending upon deck and location.

Wishing you a great upsell.
