At Sea, last day of the 2019 ATW cruise

July 4, 2019

When we meet people in the ports they always ask where our cruise is going – and when we say around the world, they are almost always shocked at that answer.

It is hard to believe we are completing our third ATW and each one seems to go faster.

So here we are on the last day.  More of the ATW passengers are staying on until Miami or now beyond with the special deals that were offered, so those of us disembarking in NY are in the minority which should make for an easy departure.

So, last night we had the cocktail party with the officers, the gala dinner and then a party in Horizons with the crew.  Norm didn’t make the late night party – but I had a great time. Everyone danced until late at night


These four guests were congratulated for their contributions  of pictures, etc., on social media.IMG_5648IMG_5649

More cocktail party fun with Charlie, Vic and Stephanie.

Today there was a July 4 barbecue on deck from 11:30 – 4 and a huge and delicious cake in the Terrace Café.


Here’s the map of our journey and the crew of the wonderful Insignia.

    Safe travels… fair winds and following seas. Until we met on a distant shore watching a breathtaking sunset or sunrise. (Or enjoying a really good Rose over lunch on a lovely estate, from a boutique winery in New Zealand!!). Gods grace be with you, our friends. Bill and Tori Wickland 🙂

    Pat and Norm, Thank you for sharing your amazing journey! We have been on the fence for a couple of years about committing to a WC. Not any more. Have so enjoyed all your posts, insight, pictures and just your sheer joy of what the two of you are experiencing. Safe travels back home!


  7. Hello! I’m so glad that I found your blog. My husband and I are considering a WC with Oceania. I plan on looking through all your posts but I do have so many questions. Would you be willing to answer some questions via email? Thank you. Shelly
