Transiting the Renovated Newark Airport

2018 HAL Voyage of the Vikings

Monday, July 16, 2018

On Wednesday, July 18, 2018, The MS Rotterdam sails out of Boston Harbor to begin the Voyage of the Vikings.  So, a couple of days prior, we flew to Boston changing planes in Newark along the way.  It has been a few years since we were last in the Newark Airport and we were surprised to see the modern renovations that have been completed.  There is more under way and we will look forward to seeing those improvements also!  But for now, let me show you the “new look.”

Each table has a charging station and usb ports for 4 to 6 people.

  1. Hi, we were supposed to be with you on this cruise but had to cancel at the last minute for a family medical situation. So, I’m going on it virtually via your blog 😄. Thanks for writing about your upcoming VOV adventures.
