#319 Change is Good

I asked a student about the meaning of a tattoo I'd noticed on her wrist. She said the small drawing was intended to remind her that change is good. On this voyage, we've noticed a number of good changes around the MV Explorer since our Fall 2006 trip. The SAS logo now adorns the deck 7 swimming pool thanks to the work of Staff Captain Kostas and his crew.
And while you're on the pool deck, look up toward the ship's funnel to see the new 2nd antenna (the golf-ball-shaped structure on the left) that increased our internet capacity.
From deck 7 forward, climb the new stairs to access the observation deck. It's become one of the most popular places to watch our port arrivals and it's completely the work of Chief Engineer Mario and his crew.
But from the librarians' point of view, the best change since 2006 was removing the counter top that created "limbo-only" access to the reference desk.
Yours in appreciating change,
