Finally, we are docked in Port Everglades,
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
after cruising around the world in 4 months.
Even though it is for 2 months voyage for us
by joining it from Hong Kong,
We are all ending here where the cruise started.
We have had so many wonderful and exotic
ports and countries visited,
so many new friends we made and
kept up with old ones
as well as ever smiley nice crew...on board.
Needless to mention about
how we have been spoilt by great service.
It all came to an end, sadly...
It was about 8 am when
we were ready to disembark after
We were waiting for the announcement
for our turn to walk down the ship.
We were standing by the balcony
and looking over busy people on the pier
unloading our luggages
and loading products for it's next itinerary.
It is a busy port with other cruises
from the Carnival and Royal Caribbean.
We checked into a hotel on the beach
after disembarkation process which
I would describe as smooth as...
Quick and efficient immigrations
and finding our luggages
before getting into a taxi.
The view from our hotel window is quite impressive.
We are going to get on board another cruise ship
It is Allure of the Seas, Royal Caribbean which
is nearly 4 times bigger tonnage
and about 5 times more passenger capacity
than the ms Amsterdam that we have been on.
It's capacity is for more than
plus 2200 crew!
It is the biggest cruise ship ever!
Well, it was
until that record was broken just one month ago
by another new mega ship from Royal Caribbean.
Harmony of the seas (227000 Ton) is
about 2 mitres longer
than the Allure of the Seas( 225000 Ton).
Friends on board strongly recommended us to this
Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale
and have made an on-line booking for us tonight.
It is called 'Anthony's Runway 84'.
It's interior decor is also
just like inside of an airplane.
They served us complimentary
huge salad and mussel dish
when we ordered main dishes.
We were so surprised how packed it was!
Bothe inside and out!
It must be quite well settled and
popular venue for locals.
Spaghetti with meat ball.
We were so looking forward to having
totally new experience on Royal Caribbean cruise
tomorrow even if it was just for one week.
