Rough Riding the Tasman Sea

Sunday, 27 October 2013

Up on deck to catch a glimpse of the sunrise through the storm clouds on the horizon. Day two of our three-day crossing of the Tasman Sea is characterised by strong winds and significant swell. The various public places are unusually quiet today. There are balloons outside our cabin for my nominal Birthday. I had nominated today even though my actual birthday is almost three weeks off.

Spent some time in the lounge on Deck 7, back to the cabin to fill out the disembarkation documentation and went up to the Horizon Court for a coffee and an early lunch. After lunch to the Theatre where "The Lone Ranger" movie had us laughing at the mad antics of 'Tonto' played by Johnny Depp, great show.

Back to the cabin to prepare for tonight's formal dinner to be followed by the Captain's Circle Cocktail Party to be held in the Vista Lounge. Lobster and giant prawns for dinner tonight and then I had my Birthday Cake. Up to the Vista Lounge for the party, there was no competition for seating there were less than 200 people there. They've split the two lower levels from the two upper levels so there were only about 300 people eligible to attend tonight's do. We stayed on for the entertainment, saxophonist Kenny Bennett followed by comedian Barry Seacroft, both of them worth staying for but not fantastic.

Back to our rocking bedroom to complete this blog and wind the clocks back one hour.

More tomorrow I hope 8-)

Cheers ... Tony
