Cruise preparation, part 2

We made it to the Atlantis yesterday and got moved in.  The ship is magnificently designed for scientific research and it was really exciting to first see her.  Knowing all of the great discoveries that have been made aboard this very ship, from the Titanic to the mid-ocean ridge faunal communities, it is quite a pleasure to be aboard her.  In addition, the science party is made up of an incredibly talented group of research professionals and students, and we are very much optimistic that this cruise will be a huge success.
