... back at the ship at 1:30pm in time for sailing and a late lunch.
Washing and ironing time to fill out the afternoon.
5 O'Clock WineO’clock on the balcony and then on to dinner in Pacific Moon. These afternoons at sea on fine afternoons are just magic - sun setting in the west, calm seas, light breeze and you can see forever. The company and the wine are good too !!
Dinner provided a surprise – we had ...

After dinner, there was a production show so we all went to see it, but it had already started but what we saw was good.
