Rita: I just love ready all about how much fun you are having on the Statendam! I just made my final payment for our 30 day Ryndam yesterday, so now it seems more real. Following along and reading all the things you are doing is just adding so much more to the anticipation of our cruise!
Enjoy the crossing of the Equator and the rest of the sea days until you reach the South Pacific! It sounds like you have your days down perfect and are enjoying them to the fullest!
