Coast guard helicopter and plane circling showed up and we're showing down.   Not sure what's going on ...

Any call of "Alpha Alpha Alpha" over the PA before you saw that, or other repeated code sign?

Day 9 - at sea

Well the cruise is coming to and end has been a great cruise.   Give me a couple of days to get home and I'll type up a summary of our trip.   Thanks for everyone who was following along.   It's been great to be your host on this cruise. 

We did hit prime status with the casino and think we get a free cruise or money off another one, but will have to figure all that out soon.  I'll do another post here once we get all the details.

Nice cliffhanger with the helicopter rescue scene! Are you really going to leave us all hanging like that?!?! Are you sure you don't live in Hollywood? I must admit, I was fooled by the whole Tennessee cover! Seriously though, thanks so much for sharing your trip with us.  It was a pleasure following along on your wonderful family-oriented adventure.  You were very generous with your time for all of the content you provided through posts, photographs and periscopes.  Thank you for all of the entertainment and cruising insight.  I can't wait for the post-script ending to the helicopter scene (when you get home), followed by the sequel (the next cruise). Safe travels home to you and yours.

An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, medevacs a 55-year-old Canadian man and his wife from the cruise ship Anthem of the Seas, 100 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, June 14, 2019. The medevac was requested for the 55-year-old male, who was reportedly suffering from abdominal pain. (U.S. Coast Guard video courtesy of Air Station Elizabeth City)

@CruisingKat(Kathy)...My vote is for @TheHobbys (John) for POTW!!  Just sayin' 😄

Thank you John for a fantastic blog and scopes.  I thoroughly enjoyed checking in each day to see what you guys were up to.  Looks like you had a great time.  I have to ask...which do you prefer...Star Class Q class or Star Class O class?

Star class O.  But that's because of the O- class ships we now prefer.

John, too bad your cruise is coming to an end. Have enjoyed your posts and your comments. One question about the Anthem, how is she handling the open Atlantic? A lot of rocking back and forth or has it been calm? Thank! :27_sunglasses:

@rjac, you know I have to say this was one of the roughest cruises.  You would think with the air pillow cushion for fuel efficiency that it would be smooth.   Now, I guess this may be due to the route or something but it was still a lot more noticeable than other ships.  

It wasn't enough to rattle your teeth but was still noticable.  The other factor might have been our room on the back left but ther were a few night it was shuttering pretty good.  The officer on the bridge said it was due to the wind... not sure I believe all that. 

I didn't mind it, made for some nice rocking me to sleep ha.  

She plowed through just fine but you'll notice a little more motion.   Pushed between 18-24 knots.   With that itinerary the ship had to rock n roll from one port to another.

We've sailed out of Bayonne on Adventure, Explorer & Quantum, Serenade from Boston and Grandeur out of Baltimore.  The trip south is always a little rocky, no matter which class or ship.  Can't do much, as you are in the ocean and not the Caribbean Sea.  Just a perk of sailing from up north...we're on Anthem in December 2020 and I'm sure we'll experience the same.
