Our adventure started on Tuesday, March 28, 2017. We bid Bluffton farewell and headed to Charleston to prepare for an early flight to Fort Lauderdale. The luggage was easier than expected, even with 2 large suitcases (49.2 and 49.4 pounds of a 50 pound limit), 2 carry-ons, a walker, and the CPAP. Where are the mules when you need one?
Fort Lauderdale was uneventful, except that we were able to meet some fellow cruise critic members with whom we had corresponded for months in preparation for our adventure. The real experience will begin on Thursday, March 30, when we board the Rotterdam for our month aboard. Will our 52 year marriage be able to survive the “togetherness” of a cruise ship cabin???
