A SEA DAY AS WE SAIL TOWARDS THE FALKLANDS



Day 12.08 -Dec. 26.08 Sea a little rough.
A SEA DAY AS WE SAIL TOWARD THE FALKLANDS


After the past few days of rushing from one end of the ship to the other, a million times a day, I'm ready to just sit with Tom and like him read a book. The ship is much quieter today as people lounge in chairs, cap-napping or joining in the days events.


A Petrol comes for a visit and a wee crumb someone had dropped.

Events today include a fitness class, a port talk, a Pencil Challenge (daily quiz and sudoku), coffee chat with entertainers, spa secrets, digital workshop, sea glass deck sale, culinary demo, art auction preview, blackjack tournament,, Trivia Challenge (we did this one often), Texas Hold'em Tournament, Duplicate Bridge, Cocktail Classes, Sports fun, Dance Class, Afternoon Tea, Sit and Stitch Get Together, Bingo, Cosmic Bowling, Karaoke and much more. Come with me and I'll show you all the things you can do!

Chess Anyone?

TOM and his PUSHER as we tour the ship.

I have another video that I took yesterday and forgot to include, so will add it now. Hope it works! (don't forget to turn music off to here the sea and the talking)

Back to things to do on a sea day. We love people watching. These where two very stand-out interesting couple.


This man was from England and had such a very interesting face and very nice man!

The Jennings, nice people but he never smiled!


Check out the decorations!

Go shopping.....these jackets where in the $1,000 plus, price range!

There is also a jewelery shop and a souvenirs ship, a liquor store, photo shop on board. Not to mention A CASINO! My limit was $5.00 on the 5 cent machines and lost it within 2 minutes!

Listen to classical music.

Go to flower arrangement course where they made this arrangement.


Have a drink with good friends, Guther and Illa.


Check out the decorations on the Promenade Deck 3 (my favourite deck!)

This was our nightly entertainment a funny ventriloquist, Keith Hadrill. We sat in the front row and they asked Tom what he thought of something, asked him his name, then asked who was that with him. His daughter? I yelled "Yes", so for the rest of the night, they picked on Tom and wanted to meet his daughter after the show! Tom said he won't sit in the front row again ever! hahahahah

This was a skit they put on and the fellow in the green frog outfit was a natural comic, or else just couldn't get the gist of what he was to do, and the audience was howling with laughter!

Great show!





All this put in a wonderful day around the ship and I've already left so much out, but hopefully, I'll get to show you on other sea days. Tomorrow we reach Port Stanley, Falkland Islands. Great pictures there!!!! Stay tuned!!


NOTE: FOR SOME REASON WHEN I POST MANY PICTURES, THE SPACING GETS THROWN OUT AND IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO FIX....AT LEAST I HAVEN'T FOUND A FIX YET, SO, PLEASE JUST SCROLL DOWN TO THE NEXT POSTING BELOW THIS.

THANKS
