Day5: Survivor - Puerto Rico

Day 5: Survivor - Puerto Rico

Disney's Human Element - Hola, Puerto Rico!!!! by Scott Smith (SRisonS), on Flickr

Disney Cruise Line has finally made it to Puerto Rico!!!!! It was pretty cool being a part of the first group of DCL sailors to visit PR. And because something like this is a rare opportunity, it was a MUST to be up on Deck 13 as we entered the port. And of course, I definitely had my camera with me. But for a little while this morning, it was my “poor, poor” camera. I think I might’ve mentioned earlier in this report that when I go from a cold room, to the really humid area, my lens fogs up inside. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to me this morning. But to tell the truth, it started off completely fine. I started off more to the side of the ship, taking pics of the eventual sunrise. But when I moved to the very front of the boat, that’s when the fog issue happened. And I sooooooo had shot ideas already in mind. I did have my iPhone with me, so I could at least get something. But the photog in me definitely didn’t want to resort to that. Because I was unable to snap away like I wanted to, I decided to do a real-time play-by-play on what I was observing:

“Being that my camera isn't acting nice right now, as we are entering the PR bay, I figured I'd do a play by play. Entering PR is a beautiful sight. You see the gradient look of the mountains/hills out in the distance. The famed PR fort is to your left. Water hitting the rocks is to your right. And from the front of the ship, the forced perspective makes you feel the ship is too big to even enter the bay. Looking at the sunrise, and seeing the sight line from the fort, all the way along the oceanfront resort area is a sight to be seen. People are lined up on deck 13; just snapping away as DCL enters for the first time into PR waters.
My camera is now functioning, and I am able to get some shots as the ship pulls along the dock.”

As I said, I was at the very front facing part of the ship at this moment. To the left of me, I notice a couple standing center stage, with a Puerto Rican flag draped over the railing. Immediately, memory kicks in and I realize that these are some DISers I saw the day we arrived in Port Canaveral (they had the red Election Escape shirts on). I didn't speak to them either of those times, but I still took notice. I later found out that the woman is “disneyfan888” here on the boards.

But back downstairs to catch a tad bit more of sleep. We had no set plans for anything here; but we eventually found something to do. It ended up being quite the adventure.
