Rickmers Jakarta from Houston to Antwerp

Recommended Posts

Having transferred our booking from the Rickmers Seoul to sister ship Jakarta, it's time for a new thread.

Jakarta ported in Lake Charles last night. ETA Houston late this Saturday with ETS Tuesday.

Will drive rental car to Houston Hobby airport this Sunday afternoon. Rickmers will pick us up at the airport and take us to the ship. Looking forward to this trip. Lots of snacks, magazines, loaded Kindles, crocheting yarn for DW, and laptops for each of us to write journals.

Kick off first full day with total eclipse of the sun and then it's all downhill for the next 30 days. ;-)

Now in the middle of the Atlantic. 1st Mate has warned us of 15-foot seas tomorrow. Told us to remove our stuff from desks & tables. Should be a wild ride, especially without stabilizers.

Master is speeding towards our next port, Montoir France, so that we'll be in & out of port before planned longshoreman's strike on September 12th.

Expected arrival in Antwerp on September 14th.

We have started submitting our notes of this voyage on a newer thread named 'Notes From A 25-Day Voyage On The Rickmers Jakarta; Houston To Antwerp'.
