All At Sea - Day Two

Sunday, 21 September 2014


View 2015-02 South America on greynomadm's travel map.

With an extra hour of sleep time we decided to watch a movie on the TV last night, the title is "Still Mine". It is based on a true story and deals with some of the many issues that face an ageing couple.

We've encountered some heavy weather and the ship occasionally shudders as she ploughs through the waves at a very respectable 20 knots. The weather display indicates we're being buffeted by 40 mile per hour winds.

My walk around the track on Deck 18 was shorter than usual as I was almost blown over on a few occasions. We enjoyed our breakfast and after a quick tidy of the room we descended to the lounge at Club 6. This area is generally very quiet until the adjoining Casio gets busy at about 10:00. Club 6 is the designated 'night club' and doesn't feature on the list of activities until 22:00 at which time proof of age is required. We haven't ventured there as we're rarely awake at that time.

We've received and completed our disembarkation form. With nowhere to go except the hotel we've selected 10:00. By the time we find a taxi and travel from Brooklyn to Times Square we may be OK to check in. Attended the last of the Port Lectures and had a light lunch at the International Café on Deck 5. Back to the cabin for a short nap before I attended the complementary wine introduction at 15:00. There were 600 people in the Symphony dinning room for that event.

Lovely dinner and great company and decided to forgo the Captain's Circle cocktail party. Jenny asked the most sensible question"Why do we go there ?". I didn't have a logical answer so we went to the show in the Theatre instead and watched an amazing performance by Dan Bennett.
Another hour back overnight as we continue to sail Westward towards Newfoundland. We are currently sailing at 19 Knots and the winds gusting to over 40 MPH. She's becoming quite lively.

Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony

Sure hoped to hear that your winds had quieted - not yet I guess. I hadn't given much thought prior to your trip about how one would entertain themselves for lengthy times inside on a ship - (always visualize people on deck). There seems to be much to keep you busy. Do hope things smooth soon.
