Monday February 6th – Day 33
1:30am this morning in the Grand Salon -Superbowl XLVI Party – New York Giants v New England Patriots. Apparently the Quest’s food and beverage team supplied burgers, hot dogs and nachos as well as the usual drinks and about 40 Americans stayed up to watch – we weren’t there … in our bed by then!! The score the Giants beat the Patriots 21 – 17…sorry Arnold…your team were beaten again this year.

Today the UK papers are full of news about the arctic cold snap that has hit Europe for over a week and claimed nearly 300 lives, dumping snow as far south as Rome and North Africa. Also there is snow in the UK – Heathrow is closed…again!!. Glad we’re here with 80°f+ temperatures!!
3:30pm I played my first game of shuffleboard – a knockout pairs competition – and we won!!…all thanks to Liana who scored all our points…my contribution was ‘nil points’ but I did have good tactics. Guess what the prize was? – you’ve got it…a Seabourn peak.
The captain gave an announcement that tomorrow morning between 7:00am and 7:15am the pilot for Durban would be coming to the ship by helicopter…hopefully we will be up in time to get some photos…I’ll set the alarm.
The temperature was so balmy this evening that we had an alfresco dinner on The Patio Grill. Vance had Nigerian Shrimps cooked in garlic butter. In fact the temperature has been so high today that apart from swimming in the pool and lazing on our sunbed and eating and drinking we have hardly done a thing…so sorry not many photos today.
