We were on the Zuiderdam, on a western itinerary, in November, when we learned a hurricane was coming across Florida, from the west, which is unusual. The ship filled up with more fuel in one port, which meant us missing one port, & the thinking was we would stay at sea.....It then was like a race with the ship, and, the hurricane..who would get to Florida first. we won,and made it home before it struck.We always felt safe, and, the precautions were in place, a comforting thought.
Trip, with her book & tea!
