#12 Embarkation

We’re on the ship! We’ve been talking about this for months and we’re finally here. On August 23, 2006 we walked up the gangway to the fifth deck.

The fifth deck is home to some administrative offices, a dining hall, and our cabin. It’s a terrific cabin – much larger than Amtrak’s sleeper car. It has a big square window about 3’ x 3’, closets, shelves and drawers enough to hold all our stuff, a small table and chair, a small desk and chair, a television with the Semester at Sea station and San Diego’s network television stations, a telephone, and a bathroom.

There are seven decks on the ship. These are the things I’ve found so far. On level 6 - the library, computer lab, union and another dining hall. On level 7 – the swimming pool, basketball court, and exercise facility. The only reason I’ve found to go down to level 4 is the ping pong table.

Yours in climbing the gangway to heaven,
