The last night of the world cruise was Good Friday, not a day of celebration. The Crystal “balloon drop” signals the end and beginning of each world cruise.

This amazing voyage brought us through the Panama Canal, to the deserts of Peru and the icefields of Chile, to the tip of Antarctica and the lush rainforests of the Amazon. It truly was spectacular! God’s wonderful world. Ed and I will continue sailing on the Serenity for the next 18 days and we will also continue the blog!
