Back at Sea

Yes – you read that right. After getting off the Explorer on the 16th of May and walking on land for 90 days (+) I’m back on a nice cruise ship. In case you are wondering, I am completely and totally not counting that disaster of a ship I was on in June. I enjoyed the time with George, loved Scotland, met nice people and struggled to find anything worth eating for 7 days. Not my idea of a good time.

So here is the route –

Baltimore  Bermuda

Baltimore <-> Bermuda

and the actual itinerary

Sat Aug 27 Baltimore, MD 4:00pm
Sun Aug 28 At Sea
Mon Aug 29 King’s Wharf, Bermuda 1:00pm
Tue Aug 30 King’s Wharf, Bermuda 2:30pm
Wed Aug 31 At Sea
Thu Sep 1 Baltimore, MD 7:00am

which really means that it is going to be warm, humid and a chance of rain. I’m planning on a really nice relaxing time…

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!

    Love Bermuda. Can’t quite say why. Like Puerto Rico only with civility and far less crowding. I can really relax there.

    Enjoy! That’s one of our favorite “just relax” routes. I’m betting you’re on Grandeur, if so please send my best to
    my friend the Next Cruise/Loyalty guy if he’s not on leave. He’s a small guy but with a big effect on guest
    service and clients, and once said I should come work in the same position for RCCL. ha

      He is currently on leave, with V filling in. She is not appreciative of me right now. As senior cruiser I don’t want to play….

    Relax, relax and then relax some more. Bermuda is one of my most favorite, absolutely beautiful and transportation is excellent!!

    Also, something mentioned on the news in z
    west Texas about a tropical storm headed for the NC outer banks.

    We heard about a relocation cruise last week worthy of your consideration London-Melborne 45
    days through Suez beginning late September.

    • Bruce says:

      I think I am going to have just as much fun floating around Italy and the Eastern Med for Sept/Oct. Been through the Suez x2 and don’t have much interest in India ports (even though I already have the needed Visa)
