Sept 5 - I know its been a few days, but honestly, I'm working! From Gibraltar (sept01) it takes two days sailing to Southampton (Sept04) in the UK. When we arrived I helped Andrea (previous Manager) wth alllllll her luggage (some people have no idea how to pack light), felt the hard ground beneath my feet, and back on the ship. This is a turnaround port, so work to do (plus the learning curve, so I double checked everything). Now the bad news! Andrea shared a room and now I do. I had to pack up my stuff and move it to her cabin. I got the bottom bunk, but I am so not used to s&*^ like this. Plus I think my roommate is a man - well, she looks like a man - lol.
Good news - since I have nowhere to go in my downtime, I head to the gym. Yesterday when we sailed out of Southampton, and from my perch on the 14th deck treadmill, I could see 4 cruise ships in trail (we were #2). I thought it was interesting. At the mouth of the bay was a spit with beaches on the 3 sides, specks of people on the beaches waving at the ship, and tons of tiny little sail boats all over. Its all perspective.
So, leaving Southampton, we reverse course and head back to the Med. Our first stop is Malaga, Spain (Sept07) after 2 more days sailing.
Oh, I signed up for tours in each of the ports this cruise (14days). I don't know if I'll be selected but I'll let you know :-)
