My journey began with a non-stop flight from Houston to Amsterdam, arriving 9.20am on Sunday, March 29th.  After clearing immigration and gathering my luggage, I exited into the arrivals hall of Schiphol airport and immediately found the UNIWORLD representative waiting for me with a smile.  We then gathered other passengers who had arrived and within 15 minutes were on the bus enroute to our home for the next 8 days, the SS Antoinette.
