Wednesday February 1st – Day 28
Lazy day onboard today as some guests are packing to depart the ship tomorrow morning.
The caviar sail in party was almost a blow away party as the winds were so strong that the ship had to be assisted into harbour by tugs. We went to the Observation deck on deck 10 to watch the approaching views of Cape Town and Table Mountain but we were hardly able to stand upright let alone hold on to a glass of champers and nibbles. Table Mountain was completely covered in cloud which is known as ‘The tablecloth on the mountain’.
