Off-Line

Today, we turned the rental car back in at the Long Beach Airport and we picked up a shuttle to the cruise dock. After going through security and more than a few lines, we are now on board. This is just a shot of the atrium in the center of the ship. The cabin has an ocean view (big surprise) and is more than the little port hole we had on the last cruise.

The cruise ship port is right next to the Queen Mary which is permanently docked here and I believe that it is some sort of tourist attraction. The Spruce Goose used to be in a hanger here as well and I think that is the terminal that we went through to board the ship. The cruise is a short 4-day trip with stops at Avalon and Ensenada. So, I don't plan on posting anything until we get back on Christmas Day.

So until then, Merry Christmas!

One last PBC video that I posted this morning. It is the continuation of a morning ride after I noticed that it was feeling a bit cold:

    1. Thank you!

      This is cruise #2. I'd recommend them more if it wasn't for the crowds. It's easy enough to find quiet locations on the ship...

  4. Sounds wonderful. Have fun!

    Oh, by the way, that 'atrium' is more like the cooling core of a galactic death star, only fun filled, no doubt.

    1. Cooling core… it's not quite as deep and usually a lot noisier.
