We made it!
Today’s big event onboard was cruising under the Great Belt Bridge. Last year we crossed under at night, so it was a very different perspective to do it in the daylight. Captain Zini made a joke that he thought it was ironic that we planned the first crew casino night the same day as the bridge because it made the whole day about gambling. We held a contest onboard with the crew for $100.00 to whoever took the best picture. We are in the process of collecting all the submissions and will post the winning photo when it is selected. I was on Deck 18 as we went under the bridge with Captain Zini’s wife, Anja. All of the crew was out on deck and it was a sea of blue Allure start up jackets everywhere. As we went under the bridge, we were cheered on by the crowd with thunderous applause. I can’t wait to see the pictures.
As if the excitement from the bridge wasn’t enough, we held the first crew casino night officially opening the casino with the ribbon cutting. Everyone had a great time and a lot of money was donated to the crew welfare fund. Captain Zini was dealing black jack. Cruise Director Ken Rush has the record for the biggest loss. He needs black jack lessons!
