    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.

    Wie aufregend, unsere erste Kreuzfahrt. Am Hafen angekommen ging es in eine riesige Halle zum Check in. Nach dem unsere Unterlagen und Pässe geprüft wurden, mussten wir warten bis unsere Nummer zum Boarding aufgerufen wurde. Danach war es soweit, wir durften auf das Schiff. Riesig und so viele Menschen!

    Kurz das Zimmer gecheckt und auf ging’s zur Essenssuche. Nach der Sicherheitseinweisung ging es quasi direkt schon hoch auf Deck um auf das Ablegen zu warten. Nach und nach haben die Kreuzfahrtschiffe abgelegt. Wir waren als vorletztes Schiff an der Reihe.

    Nach einer weiteren Erkundungstour ging es zum Abendessen und früh ins Bett.

    Hurry up and wait

    April 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 79 °F

    All travel involves waiting. Today we waited in a line to check into a awaiting room so that we could be comfortable as we waited for our group to be called to board the ship. During this forced waiting period, I watched people. I sat by myself because Richard wandered off to talk on the phone.

    The people who interest me the most were the ones who just sit. They didn't read, eat, sleep, talk or watch people. They stare into mid-space, silent and unresponsive to the chatter and nervous energy of all the people waiting to begin their transatlantic vacation. What great thoughts they must be thinking to be so involved in their thoughts they don't need anything to help them pass the time. Or, maybe, they have learned how to turn off their minds. Could they have been meditating? Or, maybe, they were medicated.

    We were delayed in starting the boarding process. No one would say why. Even when running late, Holland America (HAL) likes to do things orderly, by groups. The first group to be called was the 4 & 5 star mariners and Neptune suites group. As the privileged, first to board group moved toward the escalator, I heard, over the PA system, "Don't crawl under the velvet rope barrier". DON’T CRAWL UNDER THE BARRIER?? Holland American Cruise Line demographics are retired couples with a comfortable incomes. Why would they be crawling under the rope? My answer: They had been sitting there thinking about nothing and and they just needed to GET ON BOARD THE SHIP NOW. No people in other groups crawled under or over any barriers.
