On May 6, 2003 we departed for Bermuda onboard the "DeAz/S Carnival
Legend" from the Cruise Terminal at the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.
We departed at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and arrived in Bermuda at the Kings's
Wharf (formerly the Royal Naval Dockyard) at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 8th.
Due to the draft and the depth of the Drive Pods, we were unable to dock in
Hamilton or St. Georges. During the course of the 755 Nautical Mile transit,
we averaged 19 Knots, with speeds up to 21 Knots at times.
Onboard we stayed in a Upper Deck
Balcony stateroom on the Empress
Deck (Level 6) Our stateroom had a
King sized bed, a Sofa with Cocktail
Table, large Vanity, three large Closets,
large Bathroom, Satelite Television with
the major networks from the United
States, a Mini Bar and a private Ocean
View Balcony with two chairs and a table.
On our Television, we could see our
position on a GPS Map at all times and
see the ship speed and the wind direction
and speed as well. We could also get an
up to the minute display of our Sail &
Sign Account on the television.
Onboard the "Legend" there were many activities to
take up time while at sea. There were two "formal"
nights, including the Captain's Cocktail Party the
second night at sea.
