Made it to the ship, covid-tested and safety-briefed
"well, that was a real booger snot of a covid test" - anonymous
Since the airport was unexpectedly crowded, we cut it close with Eunie and Jassem barely making it on the flight from Seattle to Honolulu. In the end, we all managed to make it to the ship! The mandatory covid test to get on board went smoothly with no negative results. As we huddled in the tropical rain, watching a hen with her chicks, and waited for our negative results, we swapped travel stories. Jenn Wilson sat next to the pilot's family during the flight and managed to snag the first class cheese platter! Once aboard, we had our safety meeting where we were introduced to the Captain, First Mate, Chief Steward and Marine Technicians. Everyone had fun trying on their well-fitting emergency survival suit! They fit perfectly!
