Christmas Day at Sea

Date: 25th December 2022

Morning

The sky was cloudy but the sun occasionally shone through however it is still warm and humid – high 20s or low 30s I would guess.

Had my usual cereal for breakfast before going for my walk. I passed all the usual suspects, when I say “passed” I mean those circumnavigating the ship in the opposite direction to me, those travelling in the same direction inevitably passed me Sad smile.

This is the first Christmas for years where I haven’t been setting up the BBQ or some tables for Christmas lunch. Am realising that tomorrow is the last day of this cruise and that I will be home on Tuesday.

I took a few pictures of my cabin for posterity.

Today’s towel arrangement was even more bizarre than usual but did include a Christmas Card from the Captain. I can’t complain about the cabin or the steward, everything was kept spick and span.

Afternoon

Lunch in The Pantry was quite special today, there were prawns and seafood though I stuck to sandwiches and a burger followed by an ice cream from the Ice cream place on deck 14 then wandered around the ship watching and enjoying the Christmas activities – that was basically my afternoon.

Dinner

They did make a special effort with the evening meal with some Christmassy fare though I seemed to choose the least Christmassy of them all, a prawn and mango salad for entre followed by beef, bacon and mushroom pie with ice cream for dessert. I really enjoyed what I had, the Christmas stuff had too many green vegetables for my taste, the service was fast and efficient today.

After dinner in Angelo’s I wandered into the Blue Room for a beer while I waited for the evening show in The Marquee. It had a band and two ladies singing which was a bit of an improvement but to be frank the overall standard of the entertainment on this cruise has been pretty lacklustre.

After 9pm I returned to the Blue Room to watch the Spicy Margaritas  for a while before bed. Recognised a couple of Michael Jackson songs but left when they took their break.

While I was in the Blue Room had a look at the cocktail menu, it seems to have quite a variety of cocktails if you like that sort of thing though personally I stuck with VB.

It is noticeably cooler outdoors this evening, I would guess only in the low 20s.

To be fair it was a better day than this blog would indicate, there was something happening all over the ship, I just didn’t take pictures of it.
