Cruising Mexico 2017 – Day 2 / Sea Day 1 – At sea exploration

At this point in time we’re somewhere off the coast of Los Angeles. The only way you could really tell was the location displays and the heavy smog, otherwise we were in a world unto our own. Unfortunately the morning started a little earlier than planned due to my poor understanding of how Cruise room service works.

As this was the first long-ish flight I’ve been on with internet (and I had work to get done), I decided to take it for a spin. Turns out it doesn’t suck nearly as much as I thought (except for the price).
