Another calm day at sea…
Lots of Christmas activities planned and there are no enrichment lectures so we are going to spend the day reading and hanging out on deck.
Santa and Rachel (Programme Staff) heading for the Queen’s Ballroom
The Winter Garden turned out to be the perfect spot to read and blog. It is raining off and on outside but that’s where we will be later on when the seats dry out.
We went to the Golden Lion Pub for Fish and Chips, which has turned out to be the best lunch option on the ship (grease content taken into account).
We did make it out to the open decks, where seating was at as premium, and rain showers came and went.
After being on the ship for about a week, we finally found some of the other pools. They are located at the back deck and they were packed with people – no available chairs and no shade. If we want to be back there, we will need to get there earlier.
Formal Night tonight – Dinner in the Britannia was good again. I had Penne with Tuna (the tuna was mixed into the tomato sauce) and it was pretty good.
We passed on the show tonight and instead spent the evening in the Chart Room. We chatted with some people from Canada and read. I finished my second book – Patricia Cornwell’s “Exposure”, which I had read earlier. Reading “Bossy Pants” (Tina Fey) now.
We did not get escort tours for tomorrow so we purchased excursions.
