As the Noordam left the Ft. Lauderdale harbor, Robin and I searched for the access to the bow of the boat so we could have a good view. It seems the bow of the boat is for crew and staff only. It also seems that if you ignore staff who say you can't get there, and if go through several heavy metal doors and up some hidden-away steel staircases, you eventually go through the tiny Officers Club Bar and onto the deck at the bow of the ship.
Robin impersonates a Noordam staff person.
When we left the bow, we had to go back through the private officers club. Too bad no one was there. I wanted to ask the Captain about the stripper pole (for pole dancing) in the middle of the tiny dance floor (I'm not kidding), and when the music starts.
Or maybe it's just to hold onto while drinking in rough seas.
