We flew from San Diego to Fort Lauderdale on April 8th and spent the night. Next morning we took the shuttle bus to the Celebrity Constellation to join 2,000 other people going across the Atlantic to Rome! David booked us a balcony room in the Concierge deck and it is heavenly. The bed is comfortable and the air conditioner works great ( Linda needs a cold room to sleep). We are meeting lots of world travellers on this ship. We will be on the ocean for seven days crossing the Atlantic ocean before arriving at Madeira. We have had great weather and smooth seas so far.
Linda is going to the gym and then the steam rooms in the Perisan Gardens everyday and is very relaxed. David is reading about Italy and loving the balcony view.
Updates will be occasional during the cruise because of limited internet time. But I will try to keep you informed of the highlights,
