Students arrived after some long flights excited to start their adventure! They were eager to get aboard the boats and meet everyone in the fleet. After moving on to our new boats, Vivaldi, Monet 1 and Sao Jorge, we unpacked and received our super cool, colorful water bottles. Then we had dinner on our boats. It was a Caribbean feast of chicken, rice, and cole slaw made the island way! After dinner, we met all of the staff and talked to Mike Liese. Our 1st Boat Meeting was great, and we all learned about what’s to come and how to live on a boat. We were all tired from a long day of traveling, so we settled in for the night. It was a great night with a cool breeze and clear skies, so many of us slept out on the deck!
