I know... I cannot help myself. But our ship did come in this morning at 6:30. We are off to breakfast just a short walk from the Inn. Our cab arrived at 11:30 to take us to the port.
We had a very smooth check in and entry on to the ship. It was a bit overwhelming to step on board.
We toured the ship and found our room was available immediately.
And of course our first towel creature.
Soon after that our luggage arrived. We then had quick lunch at the buffet.
Went to the "welcome for first time cruisers" given by the cruise director, then back to the suite to unpack.
Then we toured the ship. Wow!
They have a lot of interesting art and pictures on the ship. They also help you keep track of they day of the week by changing the carpet in the elevators. Cute!
It is official we are on the cruise. At 4pm, outside to the aft deck 9 to have a drink and watch the sail away from Seattle Port.
Back to the room to finish unpacking.
We went to a drawing at the shops for a bottle of champagne but no luck there.
Dinner at 8pm in the main dining room, it was very nice, very fancy with ornate furnishings.
Back to the 'mainstage for an introductory stage show. We have noticed that almost all the music is from our high school years or at least something we like. It was a fun Vegas style show. Then to a jazz bar for more music and a drink. A late-night desert at the buffet and back to the room to bed.
Whew, vacations can be exhausting. Time for some sleep on a moving ship. It will be a new experience for us both.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
