It is just far enough from NYC that it takes us two days to get back. Gives plenty of time to talk to people, take a few pictures of the ship and otherwise not do a whole lot of anything.
Oh, yes, knitting. Can’t forget that I am doing some knitting along with reading (Charles Stross’s Fuller Memorandum). Have met a few knitters and crochets – but no one seems to have brought anything along on which to work.
Meanwhile – included are a few pictures of the ship (and, if you haven’t guessed it – we have a cabin on Deck 8). And chocolate – can’t forget that chocolate buffets seem to be terribly important to a lot of the cruisers. I took pictures and skipped eating any of it in favor of a bit more healthy a diet. (and none of the pictures were all that exciting – I will post them at some point if I can get all the people out of them!)
Salad is good, seaweed salad is even better!
