Experiencing shipboard life was today’s goal! Began the day with a stretch class in the gym and time on the treadmill and machines. Breakfast in the dining room, art auction, presentation on acupuncture, digital camera lesson, champagne, doing the laundry, champagne, learning about diamonds, champagne, Royal Dutch Afternoon Tea, champagne, dinner with some very nice Canadians from Vancouver, Captain’s welcome, champagne, live show in the Showroom, bed! Busy day!
There was some time to relax and read, good conversation and quiet time. Plenty of walking, too much food – and did I mention the champagne! Tomorrow is going to be a ‘dry day’ as we will be out and about in Copenhagen.
Impressions of the ship at this stage: the crew smile a great deal – an effort to look welcoming and helpful, but service staff in the restaurants are very slow, meals take far too long, and are lacking somewhat in quality – either cold, overcooked – perhaps the meals have to come a long way from the kitchen. Maybe they will improve as we go along!
