Cruise Day #14, At Sea

Today started with our usual breakfast on the balcony. Well, ok… not “usual” due to the higher seas, but it was breakfast al fresco nevertheless. I managed to spill my coffee all over the place while trying to make my way out of the sliding glass door. We also had to fashion a way to keep the unlocked door from banging open and closed with the sloshing ocean. In the end, I hog tied it open with an extra length of Ethernet cable I’d brought along! After breakfast, we mostly just lounged about the cabin: reading, chatting, and watching TV (BBC One is a joy for the type of boring TV I so much enjoy!).

We had a very light lunch in the Garden Café. At some point while we were eating, we heard a repeated announcement of “Code Alpha, Deck 12 Forward.” I have no idea what that means, but I assume it’s likely some sort of medical emergency. Perhaps, someone took a fall due to the higher seas? In any case, we’re still sailing along happily so it must be an isolated event.

We spent a couple of hours in the casino this afternoon making our donations. I won’t bore anyone with the details. Yet, after about 2 hours, we’re down $40… not too bad for an afternoon’s entertainment -- cheaper than shore excursions. :-)

We returned to the cabin from whence I’m now blogging.

Tonight, we plan to eat our last meal in Le Bistro. We’ll then come back to the cabin to pack and make ready for our disembarkation. I’ve had a few questions on that topic. To answer them, I’ll include a special post on that topic either from London or after we return home.
