Legend of the Seas – 3 March

To the usual format, may I add …..  boarding today for 10 days of doing nothing but cross-stitch, knitting and dealing with a lot of computer files. Harborfront is not that far of a walk but since I have two good friends also staying here, we have decided to split a cab. I’d show you a map, but really, I think you can figure it out.


Date Port Arrive Depart
Friday, March 3 Singapore 5:00pm

Saturday, March 4 Penang, Malaysia 3:00pm 11:00pm

Sunday, March 5 At Sea

Monday, March 6 At Sea

Tuesday, March 7 At Sea

Wednesday, March 8 Cochin, India 8:00am 8:00pm

Thursday, March 9 At Sea

Friday, March 10 Bombay (Mumbai), India 7:00am 6:00pm

Saturday, March 11 At Sea

Sunday, March 12 At Sea

Monday, March 13 Dubai, United Arab Emirates 6:00am


At this point, I have no intention of disembarking in any port. My India Visa is good till 2026 but having experienced northern India while healthy, I am reticent to risk my health at this point for the privilege of being jostled in crowds or being exposed to sun, heat, humidity, or insects.

The good news? The upgrade fairy dropped by yesterday. I was perfectly happy in my cabin and being pleased with not having to change cabins between legs. Now I will have to do that, but I really don’t mind. As far as I can tell, there were only a handful of us affected. I’ll enjoy the space, the bathtub and the ability to stitch with a friend everyday without facing the hordes of the lounges.

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!
