Visual Itinerary for the 2019 Grand World Voyage

We are leaving at the end of January for our 113-day cruise on Holland America Line’s ship, the Amsterdam. This is the same ship we sailed on in 2017 but the staterooms and other areas on the ship have been remodeled and updated. We are anxious to see the changes.

Our luggage is being picked up tomorrow, so we only have to travel to Ft. Lauderdale with a small suitcase for the overnight stay at a hotel near the port. It seems like there are a hundred small details to deal with such as who will take care of my African violets, and how will we deal with our taxes since we won’t be back in the US until early summer.

Besides clothes, we have to pack essentials (our favorite shampoos, soap, chapstick, art supplies, charging cables and a 20-week supply of medications. I think we have everything we need. We will keep everyone informed of our travels using this Blog. We’ll be back before you even miss us.
