Off on our adventure!

Today we drive the relatively short distance to the Miami Cruise Port from our overnight stay at the Hampton Inn Blue Lagoon. After driving around twice looking for the correct parking garage at the port, we found it. Our sailing was set for 5PM and we arrived early, so the check-in was quite quick. The ship, The Azamara Journey, is a relatively small cruise ship with a total of 686 passengers. A Disney mega-ship departed at the same time, and its departure whistle sounded out "When you wish upon a star". It dwarfed us as it passed by. Be sure to examine the picture of the cartoon of Donald Duck and one of his nephews on the stern.
