Let the Crossing Begin!

In Uncategorized on April 15, 2013 at 7:12 pm

Well we just left Tampa yesterday and now the madness begins. The energy on the ship is very high, everyone is so excited for this amazing adventure we have ahead of us!! There is so much to learn here. So many things change when we are sailing in Europe. Do we get Euros in our floats? How does debarkation change in Barcelona from a US debark? What happens to luggage the airlines lose? Do we get new stamps? What do we do with our old Caribbean stamps? What kind of snacks do I need to stock up on for the next 15 days? AHHHHHH!!!! I have several side duties that I’ve never done before and a few that require a lot of work. We have to directly translate a lot of information into our respective languages because there isn’t much pre-translated information for this run. The team is super fabulous, experienced and really know what they are doing, which makes me feel like I have to work really extra hard all the time to catch up because all of my colleagues have completed many more contracts than I have, or have already done several crossings. However, I wouldn’t be here if I hadn’t earned it, so I just have to keep working hard and I’m sure it’ll all come together.
