At Sea, January 13, 2013

We woke up in the morning and it was very foggy, so foggy we couldn’t even see see the river.  We got our bags repacked up and visited the little shops again in case there was something we missed.

The bellman took luggage to the taxi but the driver wasn’t quite sure how to get to the port.  He did find it after a bit and we were on the Navigator of the Seas in about 30 minutes and having lunch at Windjammer Café.

Even though our luggage hadn’t arrived yet, we went to our cabin and checked out where storage space was hidden.

4:00 PM was the required muster drill. The Captain said we’d have fog horns going until we passed another cruise liner at 11:30.

Sat in the solarium for a while to people-watch.

Up to our cabin.  I took a few pictures from the balcony. I read on the balcony for a while and dozed off.  Susan napped.

5:30 we went to the circus parade.  What fun!

This wasn’t “our” circus but it was from our ship in September

Then dinner at Coppelia

We have a table for 4. Our table mates, Pat and Jamie are from the desert in California and drove here to see the National Parks and such.  They’re aunt/niece and travel well together.

Luis (from Nicaragua), our waiter, forgot to take my order at first.  All following meals I would be first!  i had drink of the day, key lime pie lemonade, vidalia onion tart, prime rib/veggies/potato and chocolate cherry pie.  Joanna, our assistant waiter, was from Poland.  I think they said the staff was from 143 different countries.

Went to the show.  Dancers, comedian. Great band…they played Sing, Sing, Sing!

Walked around.  Luggage arrived when we got back!  Unpacking

Tried to sign up for 2 tours from tv. Didn’t work so I filled out a form and dropped it at the excursions desk. Susan got ice cream at Ben and Jerry’s.

Unpacked. Ordered room service breakfast.

Foghorn did keep going off.  Very foggy!

We passed 2 cruise ships very close, a Carnival and Norwegian. After the carnival, a pilot ship pulled up right beside us and picked up 2 pilots who had been on our ship. The dots on the pictures are the dense fog.

I fell asleep almost immediately.
