Unique day in Bermuda, and more. Started out by raining off and on, then raining heavy, and then it was more like a small scale hurricane. The ship had to use it's engines to maintain position at the pier and that wasn't enough so they had to call for a tugboat to come along side and help. Plus - they had to pull the gangway due to the motion at the pier. Eventually it subsided and the poor passengers who were stuck ashore, mere feet from the ship, eventually got to come aboard.

But wait! There's more! A hour before dinner the concierge calls our suite to inquire how things were going. Then when we arrived at dinner the head waiter comes rushing over to inform us the Captain had invited us to dinner tommorrow night. A few minutes later the Guest Relations Manager came to our table, asking how things were going and if we had any problems. You see, when you are going to eat with the boss, everyone down the chain of command wants to make sure you won't burn them. And we have no problems anyway, but the frenzy is fun. I've done it too in my own career.

More rough seas tonight as we head to Boston.

Sorry about the weather! Can't wait to hear how dinner with the captain goes. Just don't go near any islands!

This is turning out to be a very exciting cruise! I just saw a Tweet that Enchantment of the Seas rescued a sailor. THIS is all I found on it so far. I look forward to hearing Dave's report, especially after dining with the Captain tonight!

Great day in Newport yesterday, touring the 'cottages' of the Vanderbilts. Had the best dinner of the cruise too - perfectly cooked lamb shank and garlic mashed potatoes.

Today is our last day of the cruise and it looks to be a good one. Calm seas, sunny, warm. Time to pack up, print boarding passes, and get ready for the slap in the face return to reality that we'll get at BWI airport.

Sorry about the end of the cruise, they always go too fast! However, you won't have long until you're off again.
