It's Departure day!
Here's our ship the Regent Seven Seas Mariner...It's departure Day! I went into the hotel on 8th level to take a picture of the Mariner. The Volendam with Holland America is also in the pier near us. I took some pictures of the Volendam too. Looks like a beautiful day to depart from Vancouver. Weather is not too cool, a little cloudy, but not bad. Embarkation was really simple. In fact we registered onboard in the main show lounge to get our room key. We had a little snack on deck 11 by the pool immediately upon boarding the ship. We didn't have access to our suite until about 2:30pm. First impressions are that the ship is very nice. There are indeed a lot of children onboard, so it will be interesting to see how much Jacob enjoys the children's programs. We just completed boat drill, and now we are about to depart...so I better get up on deck!
