Sunday 3rd March 2013
Back at sea for a day so time for kinesis. I enjoyed today as it was my sort of exercises…no planks.
After breakfast it was back to our suite to complete a blog (we had some catching up to do) and then up to the pool deck for some sun and socialising.
Coronas at noon then lunch with Irene & Alan at The Colonnade with just a ‘few’ glasses of white wine. Lunch finally finished about two hours later…it was one of those days!!
At 4pm we were invited for drinks with Tatjana & Ulf in their Wintergarden Suite or should I say their Grand Wintergarden Suite as they also took the adjoining suite which has a connecting door for Ulf to use as an office. Tatjana gave me a guided tour…wow…this is a fabulous suite..guess we’d better start saving our pennies!!
We were also joined by their friends Siv & Robert. We all had caviar & champagne (Vance had a whisky) and spent an enjoyable hour chatting and sharing travel memories.
At 6:30pm there was another Epicurean Evening with the officers & crew but we missed it as we were getting ready for our Sojourn World Cruise…two years ago… Reunion Dinner. We hijacked the Captain’s hosting table and ten of us (Suzie & Lance, Sarah & Paul, Hizzy & Masa, Ralph & Mark and of course Vance & I) enjoyed a long and interesting dinner reminiscing about our past cruise together and wondering when the ten of us would get together again for another world cruise.
The party broke up really late and at 10:30pm Vance & I went up to The Sky Bar which has now been reopened from 10pm – 11pm (thanks Vitor) for late night drinks. Then it was off to bed…zzzzz
