Today is Sail Away Day from Miami
04.14.2012 - 05.01.2012 78 °F
It's always amazing how I feel after waiting so long and planning so much when the day arrives. For me getting their is much of my vacations and this one will be even more so. I finally got to travel in First Class on a 777 yesterday from Los Angeles to Miami and it was incredible. Will be very hard going by to coach :-( I even got to sit the captains seat and get my picture taken. Haven't done that since I was a child on a flight from Spokane to Seattle. However, the captain would not let me sit on his lap this time (humor!) They couldn't find luggage for 20 or so including me for an hour after we arrived late into Miami airport. All is well now and the hotel was comfortable last night.
The Epic is NCL's largest ship and second largest cruise ship in the world. I am on deck 12 aft and think I made the right choice if we do have sea's. Its pouring down rain and breezy in Miami right now. I need to get down stairs and take the shuttle to the ship. We depart at 4pm! Remember to toast the Titanic tonight as she hit the ice berg at 11:40 April 14, 1912 (100 yrs ago) and slipped beneath the waves at 2:20am with 1500+ souls on board. I'll make sure that does not happen on our voyage cuz I'll on the mast crows nest look out with a big flashlight, binoculars!
Bon Voyage for now and please stay tuned!
