What a wonderful day yesterday, seeing the Epic at the pier, hearing the announcements coming from her, watching the flags being taken down, knowing show was heading out for the night, we spent the early afternoon watching her. We saw everything come together for her leaving at 1:00pm. Then we heard the sound of the engines beginning, waiting for the first movements of this giant behemoth yet beauty of a ship, we wanted yesterday to be today.

Knowing the problems the Epic has had, knowing this was the first couple of sailings and wanting to be on her, we would have to wait our turn to Thursday. But we were still jealous of the people that were on her. Watching the flags come down, hearing the engines start and finally seeing her start to move away from the pier was a site to behold. Seeing her glide over the water as she made her way to the channel was an awesome site to these eyes and waking up to the wonderful picture of her peeking around the buildings made this day real.

More to come as we start this wonderful journey across the pond on the beautiful Norwegian Epic..
