3-29-2013 Day 83 AT Sea

We were really glad to have gotten an extra hour’s sleep last night.  We were both asleep before 8:30 p.m. and didn’t get up until after 7:30 this morning.  Guess after being out on the water yesterday, we were more tired than we thought.  The new Amsterdam singers and dancers were the guests on Good […]

3-28-2013 Day 82 Victoria, Seychelles

After all the pirate precautions, we have at last arrived at the port I’ve been wanting to visit for several years now.  On our 2010 World Cruise, we were scheduled to come here, but pirate activity at that time changed our itinerary and we went to the Maldives instead.  Maybe it was because of my […]

3-27-2013 Day 81 At Sea

Slept until 7 a.m. today so had a later start on our walk around the deck.  And we can feel very safe as you can see with this razor wire surrounding the entire 3rd floor (the first level pirates would be able to enter the ship.)  In addition, we have huge fire hoses all laid […]

3-26-2013 Day 80 At Sea

More sleep – set our clocks back another hour! Doug and I have been getting up earlier and earlier to walk the deck before it gets too hot.  And with the extra sleep, it’s not so bad!   Good Morning Amsterdam’s guest was Barbara, the travel guide.  She loves Africa, and since that is our new […]

3-25-2013 Day 79 At Sea

Good beginnings – another 30 minutes of sleep after re-setting our clocks again. It is clear that we are now crossing the Indian Ocean on our way to the Seychelles.  In 2010 we were scheduled to go there, but due to pirate concerns at the time, we had to divert the ship to the Maldives […]

3-24-2013 Day 78 Colombo, SRI LANKA

After two days of cruising the Indian Ocean, we arrived in Sri Lanka.  We had never been here before, so we were looking forward to visiting a new area.  We were in Colombo, which is the largest city in Sri Lanka (which is an island off the southeastern tip of India.) Colombo has a population […]

3-23-2013 Day 77 At Sea

Last night we set our clocks back 1 hour and 30 min. so we got extra sleep . . always a good thing.   Busy day, but not much worth reading/writing about – a lot of the same ol’, same ol’! Morning: Good Morning Amsterdam, travel talk about what to see and do in the Seychelles, […]
