August 27,2013. We have a beautiful room - inside cabin - one cabin away from the back of the ship, on deck 4 (of 12). Thus in our room there is no sense of motion. We left the dock at 16:15 headed north. As of sunset last night we were splitting a wide (10-12 mi?) channel under cloudy skies. Donna and I had an "A" lunch fruits, salads, tea; and again an "A" dinner (we each chose the chef's special: blackened salmon and I also had the salmon tartare appetizer). The fish was great but the grilled veggies were A+ IMHO. I should have taken a photo!
Last night we went to a variety show and then to hear a guy on the guitar playing James Taylor and some surprisingly good original songs including a Buffett-esque " Lazy". We bumped into Barry and Rilla - newlyweds our age from Shreveport. He's an AA pilot and she is a research scientist. We might have lunch together today. I'm up at 5a and alone in the large 12th floor Observation Deck. I dressed to be outside but it's raining hard at 5:30a so I'm inside. 1st breakfast at 6a!! I had some trepidations about being stuck for 7 days at a floating theme park, but it's not like that at all. Norwegian Sun has a great vibe - unlike Carnival - I suspect starting off with really good food is part, but sharing with Donna is the main A+
