Well – when you read this – we’ll have had our Stampin’ Up! General Session and…will be at lunch. Probably. This afternoon we’re doing the IFly Skydiving thingy and the Northern Star Experience – an articulating arm that rises above the ship’s deck some 300 feet!! Looking forward to both of those things!
We got onto the ship yesterday around 1:15 pm – after a quick flight from Dublin and then a bus ride from Heathrow of about an hour and a half.
NOT our ship…
Tell ya what – this is one BIG mamajamma, y’all!
Yes – that’s a giraffe – and a climbing wall! – on the back!
Wayne’s bag was right outside our cabin door when we got there – but mine took a couple hours. A bit…stressful hoping it wasn’t on that Norwegian Star parked next door to us!!
Our room is nice – not huge, but plenty – with a nice balcony.
Stampin’ Up! had put some cupcakes in to tide us over until dinner. Can’t go TOO long without eating! It’s the code of the sea!! 😉
Another cool thing this trip was that SU treated us all to the Refreshment Package. I am ridiculously grateful for Diet A&W root beer all cruise long – thanks, Stampin’ Up!
We pulled out of the Southhampton Docks just before dinner and heard…
We were able to pick up our name badges and then – since it HAD been nearly two hours since we’d eaten lunch…it was time for dinner! 🤦♀️
We had a nice dinner in the Main Dining Room – sat next to Rachel Tessman and her husband. They’d spent the week prior to the cruise in Scotland doing an “Outlander Tour”. So Rachel and I discussed the books and the Starz series and their tour until we were able to make ourselves stop! THAT trip is now on MY bucket list! 🙂
Now – we’re off to bed. Hoping I can persuade Wayne to let us keep the balcony door cracked (yes, it might get a little chilly but…) so I can sleep to the sound of the water going by! Also hoping to get my butt outta the bed and maybe hit the treadmill in the morning…but…THAT might be a bridge too far! 🤷♀️🤷♀️

So…I’m now required to remind everyone that fewer than 1% of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators earn one of these incentive trips! It’s a lot of hard work – and…there’s no guarantee at all that you’d earn one if you signed up to be on the team! There’s lots of OTHER good reasons to be a demo – and this one is certainly on the table! – but…my results aren’t typical! Okay? Okay! Done and done!
