Getting on board ship..

We were all so very excited like little children just at the sight of the ship. Holland America, The Eurodam! A mere 2,104 passengers eagerly await boarding. I was rather impressed how smoothly it all went. Lots of staff directing us handing us numbers advising to have our boarding pass and passport ready etc.

The cabin is a wee bit small and Joan my roommate was surprised, somehow she expected the "room" to be larger. "It looked so much bigger online!" The virtual tour was a bit misleading. But we all know that hotel rooms looks so much better on the web. I Love our cabin and love watching the ocean and the sea air.

The obligatory safety meeting, roll call the crew shouting at the top of their lungs: "ROOM 5069 are you HERE?" YES WE ARE we are giggling and shouting back. Luckily it did not take long and we did not have to wear our life vests. We were told that if we do not attend this meeting you will be THROWN OFF THE SHIP!

The ship is moving we are on our way......

First stop the IT guy! Can we get WiFi? This was very important to both Joan and I and the answer as you see is YES! Not the fastest connection but good enough to upload to our blogs.

Craft Cruises "cocktail party". Drinks and munchies served. We will not be going hungry on this trip. There is food everywhere! But I continually get lost so there is quite a bit of walking involved to find my way from one end of the ship to the other. I'm considering this exercise.
