We do, if we're not at dinner. And, not just at our embarkation port, but at the ports of call, as well. I love watching the activity on the pier as they prepare for the ship to leave, and waving to those who have come to wave goodbye to us. (My favorite places to do this are St. George, Bermuda and Halifax, Nova Scotia.) We also enjoy waving to those on other ships. And, nothing can compare to sailing out of Manhattan, down the Hudson River and under the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
No, the exceitement doesn't fade.
