We awoke the next morning and had a light breakfast at the hotel cafe knowing that for the next 7 days, food and drink would be plentiful. After our previous encounter with a Boston Taxi driver, we were a bit shy to call for another. So we had the desk clerk do it for us. A short wait later and we were on our way to the Black Falcon Cruise terminal. The driver was much more pleasant and drove much better.
With our bags checked and passports at the ready, we made our way to the check-in counter.
After checking in, and receiving our room card that is you identification, currency and key to your room for the week, we made our way on board where the buffet was open and waiting.
As you approach the vessel is when you realize just how huge these things really are. This particular one( The Carnival Glory) is 925 feet long, 116 feet wide and 13 decks high. It has the capacity of 2974 passengers and 1150 crew. It is not the biggest, but it is not a small ship.
I was delighted to find that this inside room was bigger than the outside room with a view that I've had before.
Those people know how to vacation.
Ed considers lobster to be slimy sea-living spiders and doesn't want to touch them. But I was looking forward to the adventure.
So, we spent the entire day exploring Portland and I was able to at least get Ed to hold this plastic lobster in a gift shop.
Absolutely stunning work that gives me something to strive for.
Coming up: excitement, mystery and more of the ship for you to enjoy. Stay tuned.
