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 I better get up on deck!

  3. Weather has been decent, but getting cooler. In fact Jacob is swimming as I type this. Beds are very comfortable, except jacob thinks his bed, a rollaway, is a bit hard.
