Breaking News: Antarctica!

Greetings from the bottom of the world! For some unknown reason, we have the best Internet service since we boarded the ship last Wednesday. I’ve decided to strike while the iron is HOT, and am posting a few pictures from our first 5 hours in Antarctica. The photos probably don’t do justice to what I’m seeing in front of me at the front of Crystal Symphony’s Palm Court. I’m here with a couple of hundred other passengers taking in the sights. Wish you were here to share them with us!

    1. Hi Kathryn: First of all thanks for reading and following my blog. I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful it is down here, even if Antarctica is not what it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. It is still amazing in every respect. I’m about to post today’s entry – please look for it. And thanks again.
