Monday, Dec 9, 2013. I know how they felt at Ellis Island.
This morning at the airport, we book a two-hour cruise around town that will take us to our ship as a last stop. On the way we stop at a marae, alters of stone where the natives used to worship the ancient gods, a beach, a grotto, and a final stop at a museum.
Once at the pier, I concentrate on taking tiny shallow breaths so I won’t start coughing again and can make it past the medical teams. Dee Dee and I are both glad when we’re on board.
Our room is a 7th
floor balcony on the starboard side of the ship between mid-ship and aft. A good place to be as it turns out. After we sample the buffet, we spend the rest of the afternoon unpacking. That’s a bit of a challenge just because there isn’t a lot of storage space. We fill every available space with our stuff. Dinner that night is again painful because of my racking coughs which seem to be set off when I drink anything cold. It is not only embarrassing, I am scared I’ll be quarantined
First look at that beautiful water.
for the rest of the journey. It’s open seating in the dining room and we meet some lovely people. And then lights out.
