Sail Date: Oct 2003

Day one Saturday, 10/25/03: I rented a minivan from Dollar and drove to Miami from the Orlando area. The trip to Miami took about 4 hours or so. Wow what a drive. Had to make a stop in Ft. Lauderdale to pick up my friend Sandra, who was my cruise mate. What a great person. Found Sandra off of the cruise critic message board when I needed to find a cruise mate to go with me! We arrived at the Embassy Suites around 4:30pm. Check in was a breeze. The hotel is awesome. They have free happy hour from 5:30-7:30pm. What a great way to start off a vacation - free drinks! Returned the van to Dollar before any of us got "too happy". That night we went to Paesano's for dinner in South Beach. The restaurant sends a stretch limo to the hotel to pick you up and bring you back. This is a very nice Italian restaurant. The food was great, kind of pricey, but we were on vacation - so what the heck! Returned back to the hotel around 11pm and headed back to the room to relax and start getting ready to go to bed.

Day two Sunday, 10/26/03: My birthday! We got up around 8:00am to meet for breakfast downstairs. The hotel also provides free breakfast for their guests. Nice start to the morning. It is a buffet full breakfast, not continental style. Went then went back to the room to gather our belongings and call a bellman to bring our bags downstairs. We were having a limo service pick us up at 10:30am to take us to the Voyager of the Seas. It was a bit challenging for our driver to fit all 8 of us and our luggage into the limo!! But we made it work! Riding in "style", we were off to the pier. As we drove closer to the pier, it was hard to miss the mega ship in the distance. WOW, she is huge. The excitement grew more and more as we rode closer. The driver pulled up to the pier where we were supposed to unload our luggage. We grabbed a porter and he took care of everything. We tipped graciously and off we went to start the boarding process. RCCL's terminal was not too busy. We were there around 11am. Went to our designated check in line and made it through in no time at all. Once we gave the gal our information and credit card, we were handed our sea pass and was directed to stand in line to board the ship. This is where we had to wait about 20 or so minutes to board. The line was long because you had to stop and take the infamous embarkation photo, which I actually bought - turned out great - and have your picture encoded into your sea pass card. This card is used for everything from leaving the ship, boarding the ship and all purchases on board.

Finally we were on board around 12pm. Went to find our cabin - 7606, balcony, mid ship. My first balcony, WOW what can I say? I am spoiled now and would never want anything else again. RCCL's cabins are a bit smaller than my previous sailings, but it was very comfortable for 2 ppl. There was plenty of storage and closet space and the luggage fit comfortably under the beds. There are shelves in the bathroom for all your personal items. There are even 2 shelves in the shower for shampoo, etc.!!
