Saturday, May 2, 2015 – At Sea – Caribbean Sea – Partly Cloudy – 81F

Seas are still choppy…

The word must be getting around because the third presentation in the 10 talk series - “Cold Cases Solved” – pulls over 200 people at the 9:30 AM slot.  The talk went well – it’s one of the long ones but I got it in under an hour.

Today the ship is having its signature “Pub Lunch”, which is held in the “Steak House” on this ship.  There was no line and the place was not very full.  The food was OK and this time I did not try the ale.

Another good spot on the Pacific Princess is the Pacific Lounge on Deck 10 Forward.  One of the reasons is “Happy Hour”, where between 3 and 4 in the afternoon on sea days, drinks are two for one (as long as they are the same drink).  Today, we are having “Dirty Bananas”, which are just like McD’s chocolate shakes (with some added banana) for adults.  I can tell that the bar uses real bananas in this drink.

It’s another beautiful day at sea, so we are out on Deck 5 enjoying warm Caribbean breezes and reading.  I finished “Malicious Intent” and now I’m reading “The Heist” by Daniel Silva.  This time, Gabriel Allon, Israeli spy and art restorer, is on the search for a rare lost painting.  Daniel Silva really puts the lines together in these novels. 

Panorama Bistro for dinner tonight – another to-order pizza (always good). 

We went up to the top deck to check out the sky and moon.

Back to the room to plan our day in Cartagena.
