This morning occurred at 3:00 AM so we could be on our 6:15 flight to Boston via Philadelphia. Our flight to PHL ended with 50 minutes in the holding pattern due to weather and traffic. We still made or connecting flight to Boston but ended up in a takeoff backup of 45 minutes.

Regardless we arrived in Boston in plenty of time to cab it to the cruise port and had a very smooth and quick check-in. After an OK lunch at the Garden Cafe buffet we participated in the mandatory evacuation drill.

We headed out to sea and after a drink in the Star Bar we headed to a packed Aqua Main Dining room ( no surcharge). While we waited on our table we went to a nearby lounge to listen to the same piano player who was on our NCL Jade cruise in April. What a coincidence. We enjoyed Nathaniel's performance again - he is a really good performer.

I enjoyed a broiled maine lobster and Frank enjoyed his grilled salmon.

We dock in Portland Maine tomorrow. I'll continue posting as I have time.
