Cruise itinerary...Copenhagen to NYC!


Holland America Lines Eurodam will be our home for 26 days, beginning 8/4 in Copenhagen and ending up in New York on 8/29. Here is a map of our route:
We'll be met at the airport in CPH on 8/3 by Dick's nephew, Jeff, and partner Bjarne. They hosted us once before, as well as son Brian for part of his European cycling trip, and Amy and Jason when Doodlebug was just a baby bump. We'll only be there overnight, but we'll pack in as much visiting as our jet lagged bodies will allow.

On Monday, we'll board the beautiful new Eurodam for a grand adventure. I plan to set up daily posts in advance so y'all can at least follow our itinerary and have an idea of where we are and what we'll be doing. I am culling/stealing pictures where I can to help keep it interesting. I will have Internet onboard, however my past experience has been slow connections onboard, and NO uploading of pictures. That will have to wait until our return, unfortunately. But....y'all leave me comments, because they will be emailed to me and I can read them!!! Life's short...go cruising.

What is Dutch for "Oh, that sounds like Heaven to me!"?

My Ex's grandparents were Dutch, but they're long gone... I'd tell you to have a grand time, but I know you will! Blessings and safe journey, Sandy!
