At Sea

Saturday we boarded the Queen Elizabeth in Southampton. We anticipated a 2-3 hour wait during check-in - like last year when we boarded Queen Mary 2 - but the new streamlined procedures had us checked in, on board and eating lunch in just over 30 minutes. Awesome!

Today was an 'at sea' rest day. We listened to a talk by Nick Owens, a British journalist who covered the 'royals beat' for many years; attended a travelogue on Copenhagen; and had our first formal dinner. 

Tomorrow we dock in Hamburg Germany where we're scheduled to take a 6-hour trip to Lubeck. Can't wait!
