Our Cruise Ship, the MS Ryndam and the Explorer's Cafe - Post # 5

The MS Ryndam is one of Holland America's smaller ships suitable for
cruising the Sea of Cortez.








I spent many pleasant hours in the Exploration Cafe sitting in comfortable leather sofas, drinking lattes, listening to my iPod, and knitting. Oh, and also using the computer.




We had a luxurious Deluxe Verandah Suite. More about this later.

Lifeboat Drill Post #2


As you can see, Macyn refused to put on her life jacket. I'm the only one who wasn't pissed at having to go through the drill.

Mexico Cruise Aboard the MS Ryndam Post #1

We began our cruise in San Diego. I brought my daughter, my granddaughter, and my great granddaughter along on the cruise. We started out with the airlines losing Macyn's stroller. They gave us a loaner to take with us on the cruise. Because of my arthritic knee, I had a wheelchair at the airports in Oakland and in San Diego. We all got to go through security ahead of the waiting line. We also pre-boarded the plane because of my being in a wheelchair.
