Home in Virginia

February 16, 2018 A day of jetlag and laundry. I woke up at 4 am with a nasty headache, so I took 4 Advil, but it turns out I took for Advil PMs by accident. I didn't wake until 2pm, now feeling hungover and still dehydrated. I'm going back to bed.

Cairns, Australia

February 13, 2018 I have 36 guest flying with me up to Cairnes today to visit the Great Barrier Reef. I sat at the far end of the gate next to ours, and wouldn't you know it, chaos ensued when our gate changed to the one I was sitting at. Just next door. "What do... Continue Reading →

Sydney, Disembarkation

February 10, 2018 I had to say farewell to all of my new NCL friends today.

More Tasman Sea

February 9, 2018 A day at sea. Let's talk about Ship Food. I've had 19 1/2 days aboard this ship, and I have come up with a few solid conclusions. The food gets reconstituted over the course of three days. Possibly four. Basically, the main course at the Buffet (Garden Cafe) may or may not... Continue Reading →

Tasman Sea. Farewell, NZ

February 8, 2018 A day at sea. I'm going to share a little Liz Secret. If you see me at 6:30 am, far from any humans around the corner from everyone's view, out on the windy freezing back deck of the ship, dressed like John Snow at the Wall, where no human wants to be,... Continue Reading →
