The weather each day was perfect – the seas each day were calm. As the captain says: “Following Seas, Following Winds” is what every seaman hopes for. The best way to go through the Transatlantic Crossing is to show examples of the weather and some comment on entertainment.

The ship has a 9 hole mini-golf course on Deck 14.
Yes I did get beat.
The Headliner tonight is Brandi Chapman – we also saw her on the Pacific Princess in April. She puts on a great show and has a tremendous voice – I especially liked her tribute to the Oscars (because she sang both “The Heart Will Go On”and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”).
