We board ship midday and spend the first few hours getting a feel for the ship. We meet Bart and Ronette at the pool deck wiling away the hours in the sunlight.
The ship's departure is delayed by two hours but by six p.m. we were on our way to Hawaii.
Did fitness in the morning. Met Bart and Ronette for lunch. Tonight is the first formal night and we are celebrating Bart's birthday at the Samba Brazilian specialty restaurant.
