First Day At Sea

Friday 6th January – Day 2

Today is our first full day at sea and the weather is not being too kind to us with cloud and intermittent showers so most people are congregating at Seabourn Square with coffee, newspapers and books.

I took the opportunity to book some excursions so we can now look forward to a 4×4 jeep ride to explore the east coast of Barbados and a tour in Rio De Janeiro to Christ The Redeemer but more about that later.

We both went to our first Kinesis class of the cruise and I found it amazingly hard having not really done any real exercise since leaving the Sojourn last April…Vance of course found it a doddle!!

Our suite this year is on the port side as opposed to last year’s starboard position and it’s amazing that each time I leave the suite I turn the wrong way for a second or two…old muscle memory kicking in.

It was the first Formal evening tonight so we all put on our glad rags and met up in the Club before going down to a fabulous meal in the Main Restaurant…..the Chateaubriand was delicious. Most people then went off to the Grand Salon to see Marvin Hamilsch, a well known American composer but we are still feeling jet lagged so it’s off to bed for us…..sorry Marvin, another time maybe.

Hey, guess what…the ageing whizz kid Vance recovered the deleted images so he’s off the hook!!
