Friends, Lunch and a Christening

Jan 8th 2023

We were treated to a very nice sunrise this morning in Los Angeles. The people doing just the Panama Canal portion have left us and the final contingent of World Cruisers are now aboard.

We had to clear the ship early for immigration and then our friend came and picked us up.

We went to a small but very nice farmers market and then to an amazing Mexican lunch at a classic old California place. The Red Onion.

Back on the ship we were treated to a Viking Ship Christening featuring the cruise line executives, a fantastic violinist, the new godmother Nicole Stott and even a real Viking. The ship was christened with a bottle of Aquavit.

Tomorrow is the first of 6 sea days to Hawaii.

  1. Very exciting – sounds like LA was your last chance to abandon ship and it looks like you are still ready for the adventure.
    Enjoy the ocean and your new home.
    I look forward to more stories and pictures
