Ocean Classroom 2019: Day Five

Massachusetts Bay

Olivia S.

Today was the first day on the Roseway! As we drove into Boston I was very nervous when we saw the top of the ship. I couldn’t believe that I was actually going to be living on that ship for the next 2 months. I was nervous/excited for this moment. Once we got on board and had a tour, everything finally hit me. OH MY GOD!! Seeing my parents made me sad because they were sad too. I have been waiting for this moment for a long time and can’t believe that I’m sitting in the salon writing about it. I’m excited about my first watch which is from 20:00 to 00:00 (8:00pm to 12:00am). Seeing how the crew did everything this afternoon was really special for me. I can’t wait till I finally get everything so that it can be me. Also, sea sickness is a real thing but I learned that drinking water, eating food and not going to lay in bed helps. I have to go on watch soon. Can’t believe this journey has finally begun!
