We checked-out of the Apartment around 11am and booked a taxi to take us to the Cruise terminal. Luckily for us, there was only ONE Cruise Ship in port today – ours!, so our ride was able to drop us off without too much time queuing.
In spite of the mandatory fingerprint requirement (of all ten digits!) prior to boarding, the efficiency continued as we were on board Celebrity Millennium with a glass of bubbly in record time for a cruise-ship by 1pm. We couldn’t get to our stateroom – nor could anyone just yet – so we parked ourselves in a quiet corner near Guest Relations and attempted to work out the wi-fi arrangements.
Simples! (for a price!) and we were soon online with the only limitation of only one device at a time. Still, better than none I suppose! Around 30 minutes later, the stampede began as access to the
Cabin Staterooms was granted.
The Ship had a refit last year and in most places, it showed! Our
Cabin Stateroom clearly had benefitted from this and felt quite spacious and new.
Before the lifeboat drill scheduled for 4pm, we took a quick walk round the Ship to get our bearings. Having sailed with Celebrity Cruises before, it felt familiar(ish), but no doubt, at some point, based on past cruises, I WILL get lost!!
Well, that’s it for today – short and sweet! Clocks go back an hour tonight and we’re all at sea tomorrow. Next stop is Ketchikan on Sunday where the forecast is dry and 14 degrees C.
Catch you then!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
