Mein Crew-Pass FotoJason and I are on our way into freedom! In about 2 hours we’ll be outta here. We’ve had an early start. Everyone whose contract ends today or who transfers to another ship had to report to immigration at 6AM where you have to present your papers and are being properly signed off the ship and registered to transfer through the US. Right now, the passengers are getting off the ship, and after they’re gone it’s our turn. We’ll update you from Canada very soon.

Cozumel-(02).jpgThat’s it for Mexico. We have just left Cozumel, and I will not be comig back for 2 months. Jason and I have made our farewell-visit a memorable one by exploring the island the usual way. We rented a scooter and went geocaching. But this time I’ve had my own two wheels :) Continue | Weiter »

Mein Crew-Pass FotoIt was quite a while since my last post. Well, do you want to know why? I’ve studied for the past few weeks to obtain a computer certificate. It’s called A+ and certifies that I have the knowledge to be an IT technician. Although I’ve worked with computers for so long now, I had to read a thick book (1000 pages) and tap into the internet for much more information on how computers work. Continue | Weiter »

IMG_3727-01.jpgThe most exclusive destination in the Caribbean is without a doubt Grand Cayman. The island is located just south of Cuba and is home to a plethora of banks and other financial institutes. As well as the popular jewellery stores of course. Cruising visitors however are welcomed by only three touristic highlights: Seven-Mile-Beach, Stingray City and Hell… Continue | Weiter »

IMG_3600-01.jpgDean forced us to change our run this week. This is always something to wish for with the routine voyages we have, except when this brings you back to the usual ports. We’ve been lucky though, and I had the opportunity to enjoy a new port of call: Grand Turk, located just north of Hispaniola (the island which Haiti and the Dominican Republic are sharing)… Continue | Weiter »

S_0004.jpgThe title already suggests my newest adventure: It’s Jamaica, Mon. Our port of call was Ocho Rios in the northern part of the island (with Montego Bay in the West being another popular destination, and Kingston in the East being the capital). I’ve had a few hours off that day and left the planning to Jason. He had been there before and got me interested in what apparently is the #1 attraction… Continue | Weiter »

Mallory Square - Wir docken / We are dockingHowdy! We’ll be in Key West on Monday and I’ve found a few web cams that show my ship (if no changes are made to our plan to dock at Mallory Square). I’m going to research a bit more to see if I find more cameras, and will link them here on my site.

4543-2-01.jpgTo live and work on a cruise ship is like living in a dormitory. The big difference is though that you can’t necessarily leave it when you feel like you want or need to. Plus, the rooms are extremely small and most of the crew generally shares with another crew member. The good thing is that the way to your work place is very short. I need about one minute – as the computer room is located just two flights up from my cabin :)

Ketchikan-(8).jpgOne of my favorite things to do when I’m off the ship is to go diving. And as of today, I have reached a new level – I’m a certified Advanced Open Water scuba diver :) Having done 60 dives so far, this certification was long overdue (and I don’t know what took me so long). To celebrate properly, I have uploaded loads of underwater pictures for you :) Continue | Weiter »
