We had a beautiful view of the downtown area and had a great meal nearby.
We had some champagne on our balcony and just watched the world go by.
Lines were the name of the game and we went from one area to the next and then to the next. We waited and waited and then we waited some more. We figured that since the ship had come from dry dock that there were tons of supplies that needed to be put on board and lots of staff that needed to show up and get to work. I'm sure that this was the case.
We had our safety drill and then watched the other ship leave the port for their cruise through the Panama Canal. We just sat there. We finally went to dinner and met our dinner mates. They were wonderful and we spent a great deal of time with them throughout the cruise. We went to every show together too. We also did a steakhouse night that was fabulous. We couldn't have asked for better dinner partners. Thanks Ed (His Honor) and Paula. You two were and are terrific.
Finally hubby and I got to sit on the balcony and watch the ship leave San Diego. What time you say? We left the dock at 11:00 pm. Mike of Golch Central's Rambling Stuff came the closest with 10:00 pm. We were both so very tired, but we stayed up long enough to see San Diego fading into the background. After all we weren't going to see land for over four days so we wanted to enjoy it while we could. We were finally on our way.
