Sunday Feb 15, 2009

The day began with another one of Tammy's great brunches and packing. We said our goodbyes to Tammy and Jack took us to Port Lauderdale.

Our cruise ship is the westerdam, a Holland America ship. It is huge. After security checks and ticket checks we got onboard. The cabins aren't ready right away so we went to the Lido deck for a bite to eat.

The Lido has an inside restaurant and an outside taco bar around a pool and hottubs. This pool has a retractable roof over it.

We got into our rooms around 3:00 ansd I finally got a chance to lie down - this cold is getting the better of me.

The room is comfortable - a kingsize bed, flatscreen television, a little sitting area with a love seat and a deck - the deck has a regular door.

On our last cruise the deck door was a sliding door - which allowed us to easily leave it open during the night. We have to prop our door open with the deck table.

Before dinner we sat on the Mulatz' deck and enjoyed a bottle of champagne to celebrate our new adventure together.

Dinner was in the dining room at 8:00 = we were at table 22. I had steak but had to leave to go back to the room to lie down - its starting off well but I am worrying about how this cold will affect my time onboard
