Saturday, December 30, 2017 – At Sea – Caribbean Sea – Cooler – 75F

A nice day at sea – a nice change after several ports.

I resorted to taking an antihistamine for my PND so I am feeling out of focus.  Fortunately, this is a non-thinking day.

At 11:00 AM, we went to hear Sir Ivan Lawrence – again no new information but he is entertaining.

Today’s lunch was the Pub Lunch in the Golden Lion – I ordered a double serving of the Fish and Chips – great lunch (the best of the cruise) along with a half liter of ale. Bad combination – antihistamine and ale.

The lectures continued after lunch.

At 12:15 PM, we caught a little bit of Gary McKechnie in Illuminations.  The lectures was about Elvis Presley – expected that this topic would draw a large audience but attendance is still pretty small.  Maybe not a super lecture oriented group of passengers.

After some time on the deck (cool and breezy), we attended part of the 3:30 PM lecture by Robert Neal Marshall.  This one, also sparsely attended, was the “History of the Newsreels”

At dinner tonight, only one of two pre-ordered mushroom soups arrived.  For some reason, dinner took a long time but the risotto and pistachio crusted salmon were OK.

We attended Showtime featuring British Comedian Roy Walker – he was a hoot.
