19.10.2013 - 19.10.2013
The sea is calm and the breeze light but there is a bit of a chill in the air as I found my way to Deck 15 to await the sunrise. The colour of the sunrise continued to develop over the 45 minutes I spent up there. Captured my final image at 0700 and joined Jenny for breakfast in the Horizon Court. After breakfast I managed four circuits of the Promenade Deck then returned to the cabin to clean up and change clothes.
First job today was to place a liquor order, we've decided to buy the maximum we're allowed Duty Free as we only have to handle it once onto our coach home. Jenny stayed chatting while I went off to the Future Cruises lecture on Alaska by the bubbly Angela who explained the many options. After lunch Jenny and I visited her to work out the details of a possible 2015 Alaska Cruise and Land package connecting with a Panama Canal cruise to Fort Lauderdale. The schedules for late 2015 are not yet available but we used the 2014 cruises to get an idea.
Formal night tonight and also the Captain's Champagne Waterfall. We gave it a miss and headed for the Vista Lounge for another dose of Toni Stevens. An enjoyable hour with many memorable old tunes and similarly aged jokes. She's a big girl but carries it off well.
Auckland tomorrow and the forecast is favourable.
More in a day or two.
