Sail Away!

There is so much to do when you first get on the ship! But, now we can go outside and see what's going on for Sail Away!
But first ... Safety Drill

We were Lifeboat Station #5, but we had to meet in the Normandie Main Lounge and then be led here by Carnival Team Members. Hopefully, we won't have to use this emergency system during the trip ... I don't think I could find my way here myself! Also, back in the day (as my kids say) we had to go the the Muster Drill with our Life Vests on. Not anymore. I guess they got tired of looking at a sea of tourists in orange vests all blowing their emergency whistles and making 'original' jokes about the ship going down ... am I the only one who misses wearing the Life Vests during the drill? Ahhh, good times.

Okay, let's get back to Sail Away!

Woo Hoo, Whale Tail! Not many people hanging out in the pool yet. And just LOOK at all those EMPTY chairs!

Say Goodbye to Long Beach and the lovely Queen Mary! See you in four days (yes, that does sound a bit short!).

There was a lot of excitement in the air as people were milling about on the top decks while waiting for the ship to sail.

The Sail Away party was well underway with music, dancing and fun!

So, what were we doing during Sail Away?

Well, here I am and it looks suspiciously like I'm about to take some photos!

Rod seems very intent on this photo, doesn't he? I wonder what he's working on. Okay ... I'll show you! 

It's nice bringing along your own personal In Focus photog for the special moments ... like Sail Away! Love you, honey!

And we sailed away!
