As mentioned, we now have two full sea days ( a real good chance to 'rest up')...after the usual breakfast morning routine...pool-time stuff, we got ready for dinner at one of the 4 speciality restaurants on board. Tonight was Toscana, an Italian restaurant that is most excellent.

Day 7at sea, weather us changing as we head north, it's quite windy today and although the sun is still strong the temperature is much cooler than of late, in the high 70s as opposed to high 80s and far less humid. I'm not going to add any photos today just to see if that's why the blog isn't connecting to Facebook. Today the ships photographers decided to show up on deck to take photos of the shuffle teams.
