On Board


Day 1 of 111. Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
We have embarked and are situated comfortably in our stateroom. It is nice, with two beds, a couch, lots of closets and even a bathtub. We have explored the ship, signed up for some cooking classes, found the movie theater (Florence Foster Jenkins shows tonight) and had a little to nibble on. It was nice looking out the aft of the ship with the Netherlands flag flying in the breeze. From our window we can also see one of our pieces of luggage sitting on the dock (the bright blue bag). We don’t actually sail until 10:00 p.m. tonight so I am not at all worried that the last two suitcases will show up in the room. We just finished our muster drill, so all is well. If we end up on the news, look for lifeboat #8!
