I made arrangements with the Staff Captain to have my English classes tour the bridge, where the captains and officers on watch navigate the ship. Most of my students have never been there, so they were EXCITED! They took pictures of everything: the equipment, the ocean view, the radar and GPS monitors, each other, the officers on watch, the deck cadets, the commodores, the Captain, the signs and posters – everything. It was like herding cats once they started snapping photos, but you could tell they really enjoyed it. Here are the two groups of students who went on the tour:
And a picture of me on the outer wing of the bridge.
