October 29, 2023 – At Sea – Pacific Ocean off the coast of California

Not a great restful night.  There is still that whirring noise in our cabin – ear plugs dealt with the noise. Other than that, the room seems quiet.  I don’t know if our neighbor has shown up yet.

I got up to the Oceanview Café at opening time and there were a lot of people up there – all of the window tables on the Port side were already taken so I had to sit a bit further back.  I still had my view.

The good news is on this cruise, cottage cheese is actually in a fridge near the yoghurt section.  So, for now, at least, a suit doesn’t have to draft someone to go downstairs to get me some cottage cheese.  That means my standard breakfast of waffles, cottage cheese, sour cream, and jams will be a little less complicated.  The coffee, which is half regular and half hot water is always hot.  I am also planning on bringing Ellen her breakfast of lox, cream cheese, cucumbers, slide of bread, and fruit on a daily basis.  This is going to be the only mention of breakfast in this log unless something unusual happens.

Nate has set up a new order for the talks on this cruise.  My first session – “Forensic Detectives: Identifying America’s Fallen Heroes” is this morning at 10 AM in the Eclipse Theater.  The turnout was good consider this is a new crowd – maybe a couple of hundred passengers – good for such a large theater (capacity 1115) and also good considering how many other things are going on and the fact that the weather outside is so nice. 

We again passed on seeing the production show, “Topper” (just saw it a few nights ago) and instead spent the evening in the Sky Lounge on Deck 14 Forward – it is too cold to sit on the open deck at night and too noisy in Café Baccio due to the music.
