The day has finally arrived…… I boarded the ms Maasdam around 11:30 this morning and was poolside basking in the Florida sunshine by noon. I have seen a few familiar faces amongst the guests and a couple of crew members. It feels great to be underway. Tomorrow morning we arrive in Half Moon Cay, Bahamas. It is a private island day so it is beach time. Everything so far is fabulous…. I dined with my friend Brad Elliott & his bride…. Nice day! Now, I am unpacking my numerous suitcases….
