Today we joined the ship and have been running around a bit. We filled out
our paperwork, got a crew ID, uniforms (which are lovely by the way), and now I’m sitting in my newly unpacked, single cabin with a porthole view! This room feels like a penthouse compared to my last ship. My goal for today, STAY AWAKE.
Above was the blog I wrote on my first day. So much has happened since then and it’s only been a few days. The reason I couldn’t post it then was we had no internet or phone on board for two days. That might not sound like a long time but having to go TWO DAYS without checking my email or calling home felt like torture.
Speaking of torture, the reason I couldn’t post after those two days passed
was because I have to leave my room to get internet and since I am in Medical Isolation I can’t post anything. That’s right folks! I made it almost 7 months on NCL without getting sick. Here on Oceania, it took three days to start tossing my cookies. I still have another day and a half before I’m allowed to leave my room and I’m starting to go a little crazy.
Here's a couple pictures from Monaco and the porthole views while I was in isolation.
Today we went to Oktoberfest in Nashville! It was a beautiful day (about 78 degrees) for walking around the fair. There was a lot of cowboy boots, sausages, beer and lederhosen. I learned the difference between Auburn orange, Clemson orange and Tennessee orange (that's the one that looks like mac and cheese.)

I'm also planning to add another section to my blog for FOOD! I thought I would start now with some of the food I've been eating here in Nashville. What we have here is fried catfish with hush puppies and tartar sauce, sweet potato casserole topped with marshmallows, sauteed veggies and mac and cheese. I washed it all down with some sweet tea. I'm pretty sure this is why all the fat states are in the south. Delicious.
