- After leaving Acapulco on our first night at sea and after dinner, we rested on the balcony in the warm night-time air and watched a thunderstorm over the land. We couldn't tell we were near land until the lightning strike lit the clouds and mountains. Clear sky over us .. stars .. cumulus and mountains and thunder over the land. Breathtaking. Tough weather pictures to get tho :-)

Here we are leaving land and sailing away for the first time. Wow.
According to the ship's log (we are given a short version of it on the last day), we 'thrust laterally' at 17:36 on Saturday 21 February 2009 from the dock at Acapulco and set sail for Huatulco. Wow.
On the top deck was the first sailaway party, complete with steel band.

Our first (and only) mustering practice on Oceana. We used the service stairs just this once and it was quite a few floors down so in an emergency I hope there would be nice people to guide us like at practice.
Pathetically, I struggled to understand my life jacket and needed help with the velcro. So much for reading the SAS Survival Book.
