After checking out of the hotel it was time to embark the Regent Seven Seas Mariner. The ship is looking good, a new paint job and new carpets throughout make her look a feel a bit younger than last year when I was on board. As soon as I was on board I had run into a few of the crew from last cruises and they even remembered me.
A few pictures of my cabin.
A bottle of champagne to welcome me on board, always a nice touch!

The Paul Gauguin and the Equanimity (would love a holiday / to live on board the Equanimity)
