With its 80 steps, the gangway is breathtaking! Getting aboard the ship was my favorite part of the journey: signing the register, greeting the seafarer who was welcoming me, following the person who took me to my cabin. But what I appreciated the most was to feel the smell of the sea, the vibes of the ship from my sole to the root of my hair! Getting the seafarer’s suit on, laying the bag, I mean abandoning it, and getting on the gangway...
Each boarding is the promise of somewhere new and mysterious, each meeting with the crew is rewarding, and sharing the experience is the icing on the cake.
