Today was tremendous…. I went out early this morning to dark clouds and overcast skies…. Bummer. Fortunately this changed quickly and we had a beautiful sunny day. I sat in the sun and welcomed old friends on board and people got on the ship for the Grand Australia, New Zealand & South Pacific Voyage. We only have 400 something guests on board but we will pick up more tomorrow in Vancouver and on the 30th in Los Angeles. The sail out was beautiful… I never get tired of looking at the Seattle skyline; it’s one of the best in my opinion…. So I am off once again on a new adventure…..
