Friday, January 13, 2017 – At Sea – Pacific Ocean – Sunny – 75F

An absolutely wonderful day at sea

For the first time on this cruise, I had breakfast outside on aft deck 15 – there is no music out there and the servers still come around with coffee.  Today, I had a nice surprise; they had stewed bananas on the buffet, which ended up on my waffle.  It was great and the coffee was hot. 

“Talk No. 3 – “Mystery of the Romanovs” was scheduled at 11:00 AM in the Vista Lounge. People came a little earlier and with about 15 minutes to go the place was nearly full.  One passenger arriving pretty late asked me if this was the talk on the Romanovs.  I said it was and she told me she didn’t think too many people would show up (she did not get a good seat).  When I started, the Vista Lounge was full – close to SRO. For some reason the talk went long – 55 minutes but no one seemed to mind.

“Mystery of thee Romanovs” – SRO

Today’s Lunch Combo – Orzo pasta and tuna sandwich from International Café plus Greek Salad from Horizon Court plus pizza from Piero’s Pizza.  Eaten in Horizon Court.  All really good.

We got those great seats on Deck 15 again so the afternoon was spent reading and relaxing.  Finished “Fatal” – a self published book on Amazon.  Had promise but it seemed thin.

For dinner tonight, we scored a table for two in the Da Vinci Dining Room.  I had a Cesar Salad, Roasted Garlic Soup, Sole Colbert, and Spaghetti Carbonara (minus the ham), and for dessert, New York Cheesecake.  

We saw Miguel Washington at 8:00 PM in the Theater and Sean O’Shea in the Vista Lounge at 9:00 PM.  Sean’s first show was better.

Clocks go back another hour tonight.
