Day 3 Monday 26th September: the Atlantic
Overnight, the ship did bounce around and with reported 27 mph winds across the decks. Our breakfast was in the restaurant in the centre of the ship, and we again chose to share a table. My mushroom and cheese, omelette (plus American bacon) was excellent. I did weaken and have a Danish pastry from the pastry lady walking around the restaurant.
Back in our cabin, we watched the original M*A*S*H movie on the TV as we took a time out from walking.
Lunch was in a very busy Alfredos with a pepperoni pizza and a salad for starters.
Another restful afternoon was past watching the movie “Duke” before we headed off to the Captain’s Circle in the Vista lounge. And Malbec was available!
We were not in our formal dress, and we were amused by the behaviour of the ship’s officers apparently only talking to the formal addressed passengers!
Our cabin had been serviced and we now had a towel ‘polar bear’
Captain’s Cocktail Party
Once in a formal clothes, we went to the Piazza to wait for the Captains Cocktail party to start. From the deck above we watched the ship’s dancers. Around us the crowds grew and rather than worry about mask wearing, we gave up and instead headed off for dinner.
Our table for dinner had a well travelled couple, another couple that were on their longest cruise. We had a great time listening to anecdotes about each other’s cruises to date. So much so that the dining room was nearly empty as we realised that perhaps it was time to go to the theatre.
Rock Opera in the Theatre
After dinner, we headed forward to the theatre for the show.
As we waited for the start of the theatre filled up all around us.
The show was excellent with some amazing solo performances from the ship’s singers.
Back on the balcony. I wanted to see the Milky Way but had to settle for what I think was Jupiter.
Clocks changed again.
