A Travellerspoint blog


Today we decided to have a relaxing day, before the "madness " of the cruise starts.
So, after breakfast we had a nice walk on the beach and stranded at a nice restaurant at the waterfront to have a cup of coffee.
Walking back, taking beautiful photo's we went up to get our sun bathing suits and had a couple of hours quality time in the sun.
At around 3 went went up and changed as we had a meeting with about 60 Osmond Fans at Bubba Gumps where we had our dinner together.
It was great meeting lots of new but also old friends.
Then, after dinner we had rehearsal: all of us are performing in a choir at the D&M talent concert. Well it sounds nice but need lots of rehearsals, lol.
At 9 we went back to our rooms

First day in Fort Lauderdale

and first night

DSC09270.jpgOur flight from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale was a bumpy one. But fortunately our pilot made it a short one, we arrived a half hour earlier at Fort Lauderdale. We checked in at our hotel Courdyard by Marriott and had a lovely dinner at Bubba Gump. After a good night sleep we had a cup of tea at bed and could look at the sea which was grey from the storm.

After breakfast the sun came out and we strolled around the beach, took a cup of coffee and went shopping. In the afternoon we went on a Jungle cruise and saw a lot of houses and yachts of very rich and famous people. We also went to Port Everglades and saw at least five cruiseboats, which later on sailed off, which we could see from our hotelroom.

On our way

After a very short night it was finally time to start our trip to US
Our family and friends waved us goodbuye at Schiphol airport.
We had a very smooth flight and after 6488 km we landed in Detroit where it is very cold and we even have a little snow.
But fortunately the delicious Tacos kept us warm

A little break at Taco Bell
