We quickly headed down to deck 5(?) where the promenade deck is. As we stepped outside we saw that we were NOT late, as other people were just strolling up. They placed us at the front of the line because we had a young child with us. THEN the horn sounded and masses of people started to fill in the promenade deck. I totally understand that Muster needs to be taken seriously, but there was no need for that crew member to threaten us when we weren't even late!
We decided that we would hang out on our balcony during sail away. Usually we go up on deck for all the excitement, but with my son being a very active little boy we chose to hang out on our balcony to help him stay contained. The top deck does not have solid railings. This paranoid mommy was afraid he could slip through and fall in to the ocean. We were on the port side of the ship, therefore we had the scenic view of... construction and dredging! So we played with bubbles on the balcony.
