OK...now I feel like I am being punked. It is Friday, September 11, and we were supposed to leave at 3 p.m. Again, Mother Nature had other plans, and we are told the ship will be leaving tomorrow (Saturday) at 9 a.m. So I trekked back home to wait out another delay.
However, while on board today, I attempted to find my way around the ship. My cabin is small, but we have our own bathroom. There is also a computer and a cable TV in the room. And right outside my cabin is a lounge. It has books, games and computers and a large-screen for playing X-Box or watching movies or - as many of the crew are men - FOOTBALL...
I found the mess hall (we call cafeteria) - that is always a priority.
Beneath the mess hall is a small workout room. Not sure if I'll get any use of that after working 12-hour shifts!
I'll try again tomorrow!
