... even with the more expensive prices here, enjoyed lovely local red wine, and I've introduced George to the joys of a pre dinner negroni! Who could ask for more?

Mass was 8am - not sure why so early when it is the only day we can sleep in! We decided to skip breakfast as we had the Mariners Society Luncheon at 11am. This is a gathering of previous Holland America cruisers but the only real difference from the usual formal dining in the Vista is that the prosecco is gratis! But ...
