We were able to embark on the MS Norwegian Dawn at around 1:00 pm, Sunday 5/17. This is the atrium.
My surprise for Leonard was that I had the stateroom decorated for our anniversary, complete with cake! He loved it! And the cake was delicious!
We left NYC at about 5:00 pm. Here you can see the Empire State Building from the upper deck of the ship as we left the harbor.
We passed the Statue of Liberty.
The gray weather followed us on our first day at sea. The sea was very rough then, 7-12 waves, and it was raining or misting all day on Monday. I did not get sea sick, but had a horrible time walking as the ship rocked and rolled. We splurged on the thermal suite spa pass, where we had access to the indoor pool, hot tub, jacuzzi & sauna. It was set on the back of the ship, with a picture window view! It was so relaxing! It was neat to be in the indoor pool while being rolled with the ship as it had it's own mini waves.
We had beautiful weather the rest of the week.
