Kinesis this morning was really hard – could be something to do with that brandy chaser I had last night and the dancing until midnight!!
Lovely temperature today so we spent the morning at the pool. We had lunch at The Colonnade – it was Mexican. Nino arranged for us to have English cut chips – perfect with the chilli con carne. Thanks Nino it was really appreciated.
Back to the pool for a snooze but then we were woken by a shout from Arlene who was sat at the end of the pool – the water was moving back and forwards so much that it went over her head soaking her. This was the signal for all of us to get into the pool and enjoy the waves. Not only fun but a good workout trying to keep in the middle of the pool.
At 4:15pm there was a jewellery show in the Observation Lounge presented by Wayne Revely who was showing his Australian Opal & Pearl Collection using some guests as models. Sarah looked absolutely fabulous in a golden pearl necklace and earrings – I think that would look lovely on me Vance if you’re feeling flush!! and Tatjana was wearing the star of the show a $2 million dollar rare opal necklace. We enjoyed earl grey tea and sandwiches while we watched the gals show off the beautiful gems.
At 6:45pm there was an Asian Epicurean event at The Pool Deck where guests enjoyed cocktails & canapes and Asian songs from famous musicals by our Seabourn singers. Heather and her team had decorated the deck so that it look like a scene from Miss Saigon. Lots of the guests wore something oriental and the whole event was a beautiful photographic opportunity.
The Colonnade then had an Asian Inspired Cuisine Market and at 9:15pm it was back to the poolside for a ‘Wok The Boat’ under the stars evening.
A fantastic time was had by everyone but unfortunately this will be the closest we get to celebrate Asia this time as we get off in Hong King…Boo!!
