December Holiday - Tuesday: All at Sea

Well, the plan was to use today to catch-up with my reading and take some photographs of the interior of the Ship.

It wasn’t to be, as I managed to twist my back getting out of the shower leaving me somewhat immobile for the rest of the day. We had a quick sit up on the main deck by the swimming-pool where Ann did some sun-bathing and I tried to find a stout chair to sit in and attempt to use the Ship’s internet facility.

Finding the chair was easier! as the provided internet connection was so slooooow, it took ages to accomplish anything (to be fair, they did tell us it would be a lot slower). As for posting my daily blogs - no chance - as the software kept timing-out trying to connect. Grrrr!

It’s a formal night tonight, so it’ll be on with the penguin-suit later. We’ve booked a table for two in the Rotterdam Restaurant, choosing to forego the rather quaint Captain’s Welcome Event and the chance of some free nibbles and champagne.

Mobility permitting, it’s all aboard the lifeboats tomorrow to visit Koh Samui in Thailand.
