The long awaited day finally arrived! We pulled into Ft.Lauderdale early this morning to let the holiday cruisers off and to begin the embarkation for the 2010 Grand World Voyage…. I left the ship early and went to have breakfast with friends and it was fabulous. I haven’t seen Allan & Sandra since the 2008 World Voyage and that was way too long.. They are such good friends! Once I got aboard the ship it was an endless string of encounters with friends from the past, both crew & guests. It was an amazing reunion. The sail away party was fun, again seeing old friends… Dinner was really nice, the food was simply fantastic. It is hard to believe that only one week from today I will be traveling to the Galapagos Islands…. World Voyage here we come….
