Traffic on a Sunday morning should have been light, but there was a biking event closing off roads, including
the Lincoln Tunnel, which was where we were headed. The cab driver snuck around the jam and found a ramp that wasn't
so crowded, but it took 45 minutes to go about a mile. Once we were thru the tunnel it was light traffic.
We got to the cruise terminal before the rush and waltzed thru the check-in process. Within a few minutes our boarding number was called and we were on our way.
We found our cabin and did a little recon of the ship. During our exploration of the ship we passed the penthouse cabins and since we were on board so early many of their doors were still open.
After the lifeboat drill we met up with our neighbors from Edmonds. They had arrived on board awhile after we did and had
yet to receive their luggage. The sun was out and we had drinks up on the top deck, trying to spot New York City landmarks.
The shipped sailed an hour late, so we were in the dining room when they pulled out. :(
But our table has an awesome view out the back of the ship from a 20 ft high window.
The evening entertainment was a preview show from several of the performers, including a singing & dancing group, an acapella quartet, and a magician.
We turned in early (11pm) and got a good night's sleep. The ocean was calm and the ship is quiet at night.
Tomorrow is a day at sea.
