Sailing Date: November 17th, 2000
This was my first cruise and we had to travel to Tenerife to board the ship which at the time was a bit scary has id never flown before.
Anyway on arrival at the dock where we were to meet the Sunbird it was a very hot day. We boarded the Sunbird and were told top meet in the Can Can Lounge where we were to get our cruise cards and then shown to our cabin. We were staying on the main deck in an inside cabin has i mean we were after all only sleeping in the cabin and the cabins we all the same anyway well decorated and set out with plenty of space for us.
The ship to look at was massive but after a couple of hours we sort of got to know a few of the other passengers and crew and found our way around most of the ship without a problem.
After dinner we ended up in the Chart Room which is a bar right at the top of the ship where we started speaking with the Captain where we found out that he only lives a few miles from us back home in Cornwall England when he's away from the ship.
Our first port of call was Antigua in the Caribbean here it was dirty and smelly so I decided to stay on the ship has I hadn't seen much of onboard yet and went swimming in one of the two pools which were at a temp: of 80 degrees,
