There were 8 ships in the Port Everglades dock; a big vessel parking lot. Around 5pm, we all began our journey out, spaced every 15 minutes or so. The wind is blowing hard (someone said 24 knots), the waters are rough and there's a slight drizzle.
This is the ship that departed right in front of us ... I wish I could have gotten a decent picture of us all in a row ... big ship rush hour.
Days at sea are fairly consistent and can easily blend one into the other. Scattered between breakfast, lunch and dinner are activities, shows, three different pools, a casino and variety of bars and countless activities to keep one occupied, should they be so interested.
One of my favorite activities is wandering the ship looking at the art which adorns the walls.
We were introduced to the works of Itzchak Tarkey. I love his bright, luminous colors and touch of whimsy. His works would look most incredible in my home, however, this level of talent far exceeds my budget at this particular time.
Each night, after dinner, we like to go to the main lounge to see whatever is the show and then stop by the Karaoke lounge and Piano Bar for a drink to two. Then, back to our room, where the room steward leaves us a couple chocolates and one of her towel sculptures.
