I think Jim's going to be quite shocked when he checks back in and see's over 8700 views and they haven't even passed Miami LOL :D

Dang the luck! I waited and waited as the Vision sat at the dock way beyond the five PM sailaway time, then six pm, then got a phone call about six-thirty that went on and on. In the mean time, my computer froze up and I missed the actual sailaway. Boo hoo!:(

 

Anyway, I'll be reading your updates and will be vicariously enjoying every minute of your fabulous trip. Here's hoping you have fabulous weather.

 

Say, if you do get pigmy goats, please post photos. I think they are adorable.

I went up to wave to you all during the sail away but we didn't sail and I got tired of waving so I went down to the cabin and did some unpacking and organizing.

Jim, can you tell us what caused the late sailing?

How was your first nights dinner?

An excellent dinner in the MDR tonight!

 

I had the Prime Rib but Judith was not hungry and had only a salad.

 

Here are the menus and one photo.

We are at a large table in the MDR but only two other couples showed up for dinner. There were two couples missing.

 

Great table mates!

Here's a web cam pic of the Vision docked at Northport this AM. All they will have to do is drop the gangway and step on the gas at sailing:). The blue square on the map below represents the Vision at the berth.

For a "small" ship, she looks pretty big to me! (and yes, I have been on Allure):)

After dinner we went up to the Pool Deck to hang out with the (Ugh, Pooh) Smokers.

 

The ship had still not sailed and nobody seemed to know why.

 

At about 7:45 pm the Captain blew the horn and everyone almost jumped out of their pants. Moments later we were moving.

 

We are at sea and headed south now...

Sooner or later I will find out why we were late leaving and let you all know.

Good night Trainman, your camera is taking some great pictures.

I'm staying up for my shows, but my bed time will be 10:00PM.

Tell Judith and to you happy cruising dreams.
