Another day at sea and things started out very rough. Sea sick bags were available on every deck. Luckily, I seem to have well established sea legs, so wasn't bothered by the swell, and never missed a meal!
With all these sea days, it has left me to make a few observations
There are dozens of nooks and crannies on this ship. Little bars, lounges, sitting areas, a library, you name it. Tons of places that aren't used regularly that are just perfect for daytime sitting and reading. So why is it that people insist on blocking a table in the Horizon Buffet to sit and read, when there are people wandering around with plates of food scouring for a table? Really? You couldn't take your book and your drink and move to a sitting area AWAY FROM the buffet? Apparently not!
And while I'm on the subject of the buffet...in order to have smooth flow of passengers through the food service area, and in keeping with the ships efforts to reduce the spread of germs, the entrance of every buffet line is clearly identified by the Purell dispenser
We had our absolute BEST meal tonight in the speciality restaurant the Crown Grill. The cover charge of $25 was waived as a booking bonus. It was our first time at one of these restaurants and we were glad to experience it. The steak was cooked to perfection, there was endless lobster and the service was excellent.
And for those of you wondering, I have identified a new pair of lucky underwear! They helped me turn my $25 casino chip into $75 on the Roulette table today. Yeah!
Tomorrow is our last sea day before we make land in St. John's, Nfld. I thought that would be a good opportunity to introduce you to some of the other passengers on the ship. We've met a few, we like a few, we find some annoying. All the dirt that's fit to print...tomorrow!
Why are they called "pet peeves" ?
