So on the 30th Sept the buses came to pick us up from the Hampton Inn to take us to the big boat! I knew it would be big but just didn't realise how big it would be... so massive. The weather wasn't so great that day, drizzly rain and overcast, and as we were heading for the bus to take us to the ship I caught a glimpse of a tv showing a weather report and New York was catching the end of a storm - explained why things got a bit bumpy later on - I didn't really know this was unusual as I'd never been on a cruiseship before - nearest thing was trips on the ferry to Isle of Man with my family when I was wee. (Don't think the Renfrew ferry to Yoker counts!(Scotland)). It took Carolyn and I a few days before we got the hang of finding our room without going the longest way round.
