We are at the cruise port waiting to board the ms Eurodam. No visit from the Easter bunny today but I did see an Easter salamander.
Being at Port Everglades reminds me of my first cruise in 2005 - Christmas in the Caribbean with family. It was so fun and got me hooked on cruising. Aunty Mary-Lou's suitcase was lost and it didn't find her until our last stop in Nassau. Luckily there were enough people to share clothes with.
I woke up at 4.30 am and felt some panic because I couldn't feel the dogs in bed. I'm used to getting kicked by Phin or growled at by Westley. I'll miss them but hope to get some good sleep.
This morning we had breakfast, went for a little (dogless) walk, packed up and are ready to sail.
We booked this cruise through Travel with Alan out of Seattle and so far the service has been superb. Our flights, transfers, breakfast, etc are great.
I'm looking forward to sitting in the sun on the deck with a sail away drink...ship horn blowing. It's fun sailing out of Fort Lauderdale because people wave from shore and from their balconies.
