Savannah, GA

Chloe M.

Today began with an early morning run and swim in the hotel pool for some of us early risers, with a fresh water hose shower for the sunrise. Today was one of those days that I felt really, extra lucky to be here. We got some sad news today, that one of our mates was leaving, w…

Savannah, Georgia


Dear Voyage Log, Wow this has been a great day! It is nighttime in Savannah, Georgia and I am sitting amidships looking out at the city’s river, reflecting on my day. It seems that my days all blend together (in a good way), and seeing up at the top of the page that it is “Day 4…

Off the coast of North Carolina

Billy B.

Good evening voyage log, What a day! Who would have thought that waking up at 4 in the morning would lead to one of the most hectic watches we will have (“knock on wood”). I actually woke up at 0230 because I couldn’t sleep. This was a result of the pummeling that we were receiv…

Around Cape Hatteras

Leaving Norfolk, VA


A cruise ship fifty times our size was the group’s wake up this morning as they pulled up on the opposite side of the dock. Not only was it loud, but it completely blocked our view of Norfolk harbor, even though it was ugly and raining, it still blocked our beautiful view. The en…
