Happy Birthday Helena and Ciara how I wish you were here to enjoy this adventure with me. Maybe one day eh?
Still quite rough at sea but with many activities to occupy us, more lectures, exercise classes and water colour painting, another passable picture this time a coastal scene. |I feel I am improving my style considerably.
A formal evening tonight where we get to meet the captain. A cocktail party where the champagne flowed and we were able to meet all the staff.
There are 740 passenger and 460 staff a good ratio I think
We have arranged a photo package and video of the trip so where we fail to get any good shots hopefully the ship's photographer will provide some more professional shots for us.
Tonight’s meal was exceptional, lots of seafood and succulent lobster and quail on the menu. Gorgeous!
The entertainment was very good too; David Copperfield! No not the David Copperfield the illusionist but as the Entertainments Director Jo described him David Copperfield the unusualist! He was certainly very funny and could sing well too, most entertaining evening. Too tired to stay up for the comedy bar and more music but I’m sure we’ll manage it some time during the five weeks aboard.
