That is a ridiculous price to fuel up! lol, but then again, it's a big ship :P lol sounds interesting, what with you getting to see the engines and how to fix everything up, and things being different each day :) and i actually didn't know that everything needed to run a ship was in the engine room.. just thought there would only be engines :P haha impressive engines i might add :P did you get to do any cleaning or servicing for the engines..? again, i love your pics :) good to hear from you again! p.s. i love how in that "Blue Boys" pic, you are the only white guy :P hahaha

An awesome trip
Rome looks awesome, the Roman history has always facinated me, it is great to see your pictures. We were lucky enough to get a trip on the HMCS Vancouver and Mandy and were thinking of you during the tour of the ship. The crew is amazingly young, or maybe I am getting older than I feel. Looking forwar to hear more about life on board. Colin

Wish I was there!
Glad you had a chance to see the Colliseum and the other sites around Rome. It is a very beautiful city and when I see the pictures it makes me want to go back sooner rather than later. Make sure you get to the Vatican next time around as the Sistene Chapel is pretty unbelievable. Enjoy the world while you have the time off. Glad you are doing well. I am sure that you will have fun Navigating on the bridge soon.

Good to hear
Aww I'm so happy for you garrett (and very jealous might I add). Your blogs are always so enjoyable to read, lots of personality. Sounds like you're having a once and a live time trip. I can't believe you were the overboard dummy lol how'd you manage to get yourself in that position? What am I saying, you probally volunteered! Keep having fun and we'll see ya when you get back! oh... and what day is that exactly? I think some sort of welcome home party is in order :) Good to hear from you, Bye for now, Amanda

Jumping overboard must have been a shit ton of fun, although Oscar is a pretty lame nickname, haha. Another solid blog post and although you didn't get to go in that looks like some sick architecture. Definitely still enjoying the blog posts, and I wonder how bad the cleaning was compared to what I did at the car wash, lol. You guys need a bucket stick :P

OMYGOSH!! A SHARK!! :O lol.. that would've been soooo cool to see :) but scary at the same time.. i duno how i'd react actually :P i lol'd at the spanish kid :P awhh. haha also kinda funny you jumped overboard... sound like you had fun with that. and i agree...for a passenger.. after having gone overboard on a moving ship, watching the ship sail away has got to be one of the worst feelings :( although wouldn't you get pulled under the boat..? i duno.. anyways, glad to see you're having a good time! :) --Alicia :)

World cup
G I did the same thing 4 years ago when Portugal beat England. My wife is Portugese and I was wearing my Portugal jersey when we were watching the game in Budapest, Hungary surrounded by UK fans. I really didnt understand the fierce shall I say l"oathing" football fans have for the other team. I was nearly killed 3 times by UK fans! I used my diplomatic Canadian "peace keeping" charm to get myself out of some tight spots. Went back to the hotel and changed for my own safety! Sounds like you are continuing to have a great experience. Glad to hear that. Take care and do keep us posted on how things go. Best regards, Jeff

World Cup
Nice to hear you are able to watch some soccer games. Hopefully there are some Aussies, Frenchmen, or Italians on board that you can remind how their teams are doing! Hopefully you bring some of those US dollars home.

Looking pretty crazy so far, as always and as expected solid photos. You used to having such little personal space already? The photo of your cabin looked a little scary, haha. Sounds like the beginning of an awesome adventure accompanied by getting paid. I'll be sure to fire you an e-mail updating you on things around here although not much has happened. Ill be waiting for another updated and I can't wait to see brown Garrett when you get back, haha. Cheers.

Awesome Comment
Man your cabin looks like it could be the room you get your medical test in. Also I was totally picturing you sleeping in hammocks it would be much cooler and you could sway with the boat. The bridge looks awesome, does everyone that works on the boat love the song I'm on a boat? Anyways I will keep this short since I know it is costing you money to read this, you should copy pasta all the comments and then go offline so I can ramble more. ps; sasquatch was amazing if you feel like wasting bandwidth I have photos on fb

Thank you !!
Thanks so much Garrett for your wonderful tour of Europe. I have always dreamed of travelling yet have somehow never found the time. It is especially meaningful to see it through a friend's eyes and read the fun comments of your friends too! PS We have a few artistic friends who contribute to deviant art too....
