(The following log features extracts from the Ship’s Official Log Book, with the entries recorded by the Officer of the Watch on the Navigational Bridge - 10-Day Eastern Caribbean - November, 30 - December, 10, 2016)

 At 05:00, the Royal Princess will make her final approach to Port Everglades, entering as we departed, through the Bar Cut Channel. Our stern will then swing to port where she will thrust bodily to starboard to gently come alongside the berth. With all lines fast and the gangways rigged and ready, the passenger disembarkation will commence. From the Captain, Officers and all the crew on the Royal Princess, we hope have you envoyed your cruise and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
