Oceans and Seas » Caribbean February 8th 2019

Two Days of an R&R. We have walked a million miles at the 3 ports we have visited. My sore knee keeps reminding me of that. Yoweee. How are you all holding up? Good! Now we have two days of just sailing which will give my knee a tiny bit of recovery. Not much though cause this ship is a big floating city and there is a lot of walking around on it. Plus we have our ballroom dance lessons again. Clump, Drag, Clump, that rhythm? Of course, our main pathway we travel is either to the dining room or to the buffet. We switch back and forth but prefer dinner in the main dining room. Just loved to be waited on hand and foot by our dedicated, courteous wait staff. If only we could ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Pacific February 4th 2019

well i am finally cruising! spent a night in san francisco and had a nice meal with caitlyn. my hotel was right beside china town which was beautifully decorated with lights and red lanterns for the chinese new year celebrations. i boarded the ship the next day and spent the afternoon unpacking and exploring the arcadia. we had a champagne sail away from the aft of the ship in the evening. beautiful to see the city all lit up at night. we passed under the golden gate bridge. from the top deck, deck 11, it almost feels like you can reach up and touch the underside of the bridge. so four days at sea until we reach waikiki. the first 2 days were very rough. the mighty pacific ocean. i managed to cope with the help ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Southern December 31st 2018

“The world is only tolerable because of the empty spaces in it – millions of people all crowded together, fighting and struggling, but behind them, somewhere, enormous, empty places. Man needs an empty space somewhere for the spirit to rest in.” Doris Lessing South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands... I could've categorized the blog under 'South America', but that just didn't seem right. I chose the 'Oceans and Seas' category as I thought it was more fitting. Should I be redefining continents? Why are there seven? I entered an other-worldly land of exotics. I've visited this distant entity many times, and every time I struggle to find words that adequately suit the mood. Prehistoric perhaps? A modern day 'Land the Time Forgot'. The dark skies, stormy seas, ever-blowing wind, towering peaks, dazzling glaciers, and the ... read more

Once far away from the lands of home and once far away from the lands of Virginia, oh travel brings lots of joy and happiness! I was basically just making up that special poet quote about my travels! I took a nice World Nurse Assistant Journey through Philippines Sea Countries as well as across from there to Indian Ocean to Red Sea to Medterrean Sea to Atlantic Seas,etc. I got to see all the ports of call through Cruising! Amman, Jordan; Libson, Portugal; Barcelona, Spain; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Jidahh, Saudi Arabia, Mumbai, India; Bangkok, Thailand; Hamilton,Bermuda, Johannesburg, South Africa; Tokyo,Japan;etc. Unfortunately, my pictures I tried to paste on this message won't let me but I walked around Thailand's Grand Palace,etc. I didn't pay too much money to explore the Grand Palace and the streets were ... read more

The Atlantic, North to South – December 2018 Dawn breaks over my last morning in Barcelona and after enjoying another great buffet breakfast at the Hilton, it’s time to make my way down to the lobby, grab a local taxi to the cruise ship terminal and begin yet another adventure on the high seas. As I left the hotel the rain began to fall, as if the city was crying at my departure (yeah, like that would happen – NOT) – and it continued to come down harder as I approached the World Trade Center Terminal. Arriving here early made check-in was a breeze, and in less than 30 minutes from being dropped off, I was onboard and making my way to the restaurant for an early lunch, while the staterooms were being readied. One of ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Atlantic November 16th 2018

When we woke up today, the weather looked great outside. We had a planned a relaxing day of sunbathing so we are relaxed for our few days rushing through Florida. On the way to the buffet for breakfast, we met up with a few people that we have met before on the cruise. By the time we got to the buffet, it was an hour later. Unfortunately, on arrival at the buffet we witnessed a lady falling badly on the slippery floor. The crew were very efficient and the doctor was soon there. She was wrapped and strapped to a stretcher and taken down to the medical centre. What a terrible way to finish a holiday. It looked bad. By the time we got out of the buffet after breakfast the rain was falling again, so ... read more

Oceans and Seas » Caribbean November 15th 2018

We have a meeting with Nelson this morning at 9.00am, so decided on a small room service breakfast. Unfortunately, it looked like they or we did not quite understand it right and we got double what we were expecting. We did manage to eat most of it though. When we arrived at Guest Services on deck 5, we were met by the PA to Nelson and also Andre the Cruise Director. We felt very important. This morning was our opportunity to discuss with Nelson the issues we have had with the billing and how the discounts for us being Gold Latitude members never seem to be automatic. We also had a good discussion with him with regards to the issues we have been having with the internet. We discussed with Nelson the decision of NCL to ... read more
