After eight months of non-stop tourism, it's been nice to enjoy onboard life the past week. The pictures I took from Stockholm are from the sailaway which takes quite a long time to complete. Sailing through the Stockholm archipelago takes about four hours and there's a pilot onboard that whole time. It's quite amazing because you'll be sitting inside next to a window, and then all of a sudden, you'll see trees going by. Typically we get out into open water quickly. That's not the case in Stockholm.
I met some very nice people at the sailaway. I'm looking forward to this segment because we get to go to Berlin again and the people onboard seem very friendly. I've also really settled into a comfortable place. There are new crew members getting on all the time and I finally feel like I have the time to get to know all of them. I'm helping the Destinations team dispatch tours in the morning because I think it's fun, and because it's harder to make an impression on the passengers during the shorter segments because we don't have as much time. So helping dispatch is my way of making a stronger impression. Our show, Sailing Through Broadway, is at the end of every segment now, so it's always cool to get to know people and they have them see you up on stage. Oh well. Enough for now. On to the next port!
Love you and miss you all so much!
