    I dropped by the Royal Transporter with bags packed but it seems my timing was off.  Radiance was at Hubbard Glacier while I was drinking Painkillers, I mean medicating against the virus on Jost Van Dyke.   
    I could beam over to Radiance where she was or pick another ship.  I love the Caribbean but was really looking forward to cooler weather.  The crew suggested New England.  That's actually a pretty decent idea.  Cruising with the Royal Transporter team opens up a whole new aspect of cruising.     
    "Surprise me" I said.  "Something on a New England cruise... but keep it on a Royal Caribbean ship" (I need my points to keep climbing the Crown and Anchor ladder).
    I'm not sure where I'm heading but I'll find out when I get there.

    With that it was time to depart OSJ.



    All good things must come to an end including my time on Empress of the Seas.  It seems like Radiance should have reached Hubbard Glacier by now so I think it's time to beam back to where I started.
    Tomorrow is another cruise day and I look forward to the cooler Alaskan weather.

    With our last minute and late arrival it didn't take long for the shadows to grow long.

    Cruise relaxation mode engaged.



    I heard in a press briefing a Painkiller might prevent Coronavirus.  I looked at my watch and it was 5 o'clock.

    Unsure of the recommended dose, I had several.

    Jost is a small island with a smaller population but this beach is world renowned.

    Whenever I get the chance I head over to Jost Van Dyke. So that's where we head today.

    Day Five
    It's not often Royal Caribbean visits Tortola so while I'm on Empress let's do just that.  The warp drive brought us here in no time.

    Thank you for this! I can almost feel the sun on my face instead of the fluorescent work lights in my eyes.

    Later as we approached Miami under the cover of darkness it was almost time to debark.

    I looked down to see the Captain on the bridge wing.  Our eyes met and I gave him the nod.  He understood.  

    Warp drive engaged, we are heading back out to sea.


    When it's a made up cruise you can do things like this.
    I think I'll stay on Empress one more day, there's an island calling my name.

    The forward deck area is a great place to sail into the sunset but after dark it's also a great place to stargaze.  On this occasion that included Milky Way gazing.
    I caught some lightning on the horizon from a distant storm in this next photo.


    Forget sailing into the sunset.  Tonight we sail away into the Milky Way.

    Having visited a number of time since Perfect Day at CocoCay was completed I can't imagine CocoCay without the Oasis lagoon.
