Day 16 Ft. Lauderdale

Well one cruise ends and another starts….  It was sad to see Brad & Gloria leave but they will be back in 17 days for the World Voyage.  We have over 1500 guests onboard now of which about 250 are kids, Oh joy….  It could be an interesting week.  Tomorrow is Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas.  I really like it there, great beach day.  I will go ashore on the first tender.  If there is a big  line to get a tender, I may stay on board. I hate it when they do away with priority tendering for the 4 star Mariners.  I will have a sunny day either way, I am very flexible……



  1. Why did they do away with the priority tendering? Your pics today are amazing.

  2. They are not requiring tender tickets which means it is a free for all.... With over 1500 guests it could be some long lines. I would rather relax by the pool than stand in line....

  3. Loveeee the sunrise picture! Simply Awesome!


  4. They are huge tenders for HMC now so not usually a wait. Enjoy!

  5. I snapped some great pics of the amsteredam leaving the port. I posted them on FB with the ship and the sunset. It was a nice sail a way

  6. Great pictures! Watched the sail-away yesterday and wondering where you spend that time. My late husband and I were always in Crow's Nest. Now my cruising days are over so thankfully I can enjoy your wonderful photos.

  7. Hi Jeff,
    Glad to hear your new adventure is off to a good start with plenty of friends and sunshine.
    I've been following your blog for years and have always enjoyed your comments and wonderful photos. Like so many others, I've made reading it a pleasurable break in my day.Thank you and keep up the good work.
    Love the sunset shot.
    Hope Santa brings you an ample supply of diet Coke for your voyage. Wishing you plenty of sunshine, adventure and happiness in the coming year.
    Happy Holidays.

  8. Jeff I get the impression getting you dressed as santa with a kid on your lap may not be in the cards :)
