    Our Oceanview Cabin

    July 5, 2019, Irish Sea ⋅ ☁️ 61 °F

    We were onboard Nautica well before our appointed time. Lunch was at the Terrace Café ... with our friends — Bill & Star and Sonia & Boris. We met both couples on the 2017 world cruise. Sonia and Boris’s longtime friends, Sofia & Stalik, joined us as well.

    Much of the afternoon was spent getting settled into our respective cabins, with time set aside to attend the mandatory muster drill when the ship’s horn sounded the alarm.

    At 7:00p, Nautica quietly slipped her mooring lines. As the ship headed out to the Irish Sea, we rejoined our friends for a group dinner at the Polo Grill.

    And so our voyage has begun!

    (Oddly, I have no photos from today except for those I took of the cabin.)
