Embark Southampton, England (8-29-18)

Passports out and our landing cards in hand, we traversed the maze of lines to have our passports checked and tWell the adventure has begun. After a slight delay leaving Columbus, we endured a 30 minute flight to Detroit in a stifling hot Delta commuter “cigar” airplane. To our delight, the Detroit airport had refreshingly cool air conditioning and a Mediterranean café next to our departure gate, so we had appetizers and beverages, of course.

Our Delta, flight #16, boarded right on time, we got settled and pushed away from the gate on schedule. Nothing much exciting happened over the course of our seven hour flight and landed just a few minutes late because they didn’t have a gate ready for us.

Passports in hand, we followed a never ending line of travelers through the UK boarder, then claimed our luggage. The Royal Princess representatives were there to meet us as we were assigned a bus for transport to the ship in Southampton. Not wanting to go hungry while on the bus we stocked up on sandwiches, snacks and canned Gin and Tonics to go!
