A long time ago, before 9/11, ships offered tours of the bridge, the engine room, the laundry room, the galleys, and all the places you wanted to see. It was so much fun to me, especially the bridge and engine room. It was fascinating to see the controls, and how much raw power is produced. I have watched many specials on television showing how different ships were built-fascinating!
I know you're going to have a wonderful voyage and a great new life in the states!
