    At sea for eight days

    April 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Had a very smooth embarkation experience, taking our luggage with us directly to our room. Attended a 3-5 star Mariner reception in the afternoon and made our reservations for dinner, a wine tasting and the Cellar Master’s Dinner later in the week. Slept so well and woke up in time to shower before we met for breakfast at 9. Attended the shore excursion talk before walking the promenade for 1.5 miles. Averaging 15,000 steps per day on the ship. Great way to get exercise without realizing it. Enjoying a fully refurbished ship, new carpets and drapes and upholstery. They’ve eliminated the librarian position so borrowing books is on the honour system. Entertainment on the second night was a comedian. Enjoying America’s Test Kitchen demos and new evening entertainment.
    Good Friday, day 6, has brought blue skies, a sprinkling of rain and a fleeting rainbow. Attended the florist tour, not much to see as they have cut back on such luxuries. The florist however has done a great job making do with less. Premiere wine tasting this afternoon and then the Good Friday service. No piano and but there are hymn books and a pastor.

    Saturday I attended the Bible study and connected with the Interdenominational group planing the Easter sunrise service. Have also been going to the America’s test kitchen demonstrations. Great tips for great meals in a short time.

    Gala night today and a production show in the theatre. We met a two people from Hamburg who are friends and travel together because Karin’s husband is in a nursing home. She and Ekhardt met more than 10 years ago when she and her husband were still able to travel together. It’s nice that people can come to an understanding like that.

    Garry and I sang in the choir for the Easter Sunday service . Really enjoyed breakfast after the brief but meaningful service.

    Enjoyed a Wines of the world tasting where Vic won a bottle of wine. Beautiful.

    Embarcation

    January 4, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 81 °F

    At noon we took a shuttle from the hotel to the port. Then spent 2.5 hours checking in. The whole process was so poorly organized plus since we do not sail on HAL that often, our status is only 3 stats mariner. Most passengers are 5 stars, so they all went ahead of us.
    Finally on the ship, went for a lunch and started to unpack our suitcases.
    At 5 pm there was a party on the upper deck with music and booze. That was a lot of fun.
    After that we unpacked a little more, had a light dinner on Lido deck and went to sleep.
    Tomorrow is a sea day with lots of activities.
    I took more pictures with Boris's phone, can't load then here yet.

    Embarked Allure @ Port Everglades

    March 1, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 72 °F

    Up and at ‘em early this morning. Quick breakfast ... quick re-packing of our Florida bags ... we were ready to leave the bungalow by 10:00a as planned.

    After we returned the car to the port rental office, Alamo shuttled us to Port Everglades. Embarkation was easy peasy thanks to the SetSail passes I had on my phone ... the Royal Caribbean app is easy to use.

    The only stop we made on our way to the waiting area was to have our photos taken for our ship’s cards. Had I uploaded photos into the app even that would not have been necessary.

    The ship is sailing full so there was quite a crowd waiting in the terminal to embark the ship. RC had things under control ... designated seating areas by loyalty club level ... we’re considered Diamond thanks to our club standing with Celebrity. Our wait was short and by 11:30a we were onboard and heading to the Park Café for lunch.

    Cabins were available promptly at 1:00p. We’ll get settled in once our bags are delivered. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the veranda and watching the goings on as vessels of all sizes come and go through the ship’s channel that will be our gateway to the Atlantic in a couple of hours.

    Bon voyage to us ... and smooth sailing we hope 🤞🏻

    Ft. Lauderdale, FL

    December 18, 2014 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

    For those of you who know us, you will remember we set out just about 19 years ago to go around the world on our 38 foot sailboat Phantasie. We left from San Francisco and headed south to Mexico. When we arrived at Bahia de Navidad (the usual hopping off spot for those crossing the Pacific) we realized that we were going much too slow to go around the world in the two years that we had allowed. We knew that we couldn't speed up without ruining the great experience we were having so far. We decided to put it off until we went cruising again.
    Well, times have changed. The Indian Ocean is not really safe for cruisers and we really want to spend time in the Med but the nagging wonder of what was out there and what we would have seen persists.
    A little over a year ago we found a cruise line and a particular itinerary that really interested us. We also convinced (with very little prodding) some great friends to go with us. So began the odyssey we just labeled "The World Cruise".
    From Woodstock, VA we set out to go around the world without flying. Our journey begins on water here in Ft. Lauderdale.
    Today we will board the Silver Whisper and travel for 4.5 months until we arrive back at Ft. Lauderdale. We will see some 50+ countries and make around 120 ports. We, and our traveling companions Jeff and Ali Carithers, will bring you the highlights here.
    To start here is a shot of South Beach, Miami. Beautiful weather, scenery and art deco buildings made a great pre-cruise vacation even better.
    See you along the way.

    Lago Mar, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    December 19, 2014 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    We stayed in Lago Mar on the beach in Fort Lauderdale with our good friends Jane and Mike Beasley. They came to see us off. We waved at them from the ship. They were sitting on the rocks waving their iPhones on flashlight so we could see them. They swore they had no liquor with them but we were doubtful. There was certainly liqour involved onboard as we toasted the trip with the signature drink of the cruise line the "Silver Spirit". It is basically all booze except for the squeeze of lime they use at the end. We call that "the mixer".
    We had a great first dinner after unpacking and figuring out where to stow all the luggage (under the bed). More drinks and a show and we are feeling very "at home" on board.
    Mike and Jane also helped shuttle the MaxMobile to the Kozy Kamper motorhome park for winter storage. It is a nice place and other then maybe having a low battery when we get back it should be fine.
    It was really great to have such a send off. Thank you Jane and Mike.
