Day 6 - Day at Sea 17 April 2015

Today is a leisurely day spent at sea.

As I said before, you could have a day full of non stop activity.   You could go to cookery classes, dance, sing, go to lectures, go and watch a film, play sports on top deck, go to the gym, get pampered in the spa, get your hair done, get your nails done, swim, sunbathe, if it's warm enough, read in the library, listen to music, play in the casino, or at night watch a show in the theatre.

Or you could do nothing all day and chill.

So we do that.  We pick up the ship's daily crossword plus summarised newspaper of the UK news from deck 5, and then go to the Market Cafe.  So, with a nice coffee we sit by the window overlooking the sea, read and do the crossword and have a good chit chat.

Then check out the new cakes,  The photos aren't great though viewed through a glass cabinet

Although we don't eat the cakes we still ate a lot today (like most days).  For lunch we both eat a meal and share a selection of desserts.  Well they are small and so lovely looking you have to try a few :).

Plus have a side plate of poppadums as a starter

After eating too much for lunch we'd go back to the cabin for a bit then Andy would put on his running gear and run around promenade on deck 18 and do 3 or 4 miles.  I'd do my exercises in the cabin and both of us would think we did something to stop the calories from piling on! 

So tonight is another black tie night.  We make an effort for a pre-dinner selfie

We had a delicious meal as usual.  I had New York Cheesecake for dessert.  

Andy had a dessert and felt the need to add a face to his Warm Chocolate Praline Fondant with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel sauce

Tommorow we will be arriving at Civitaveccia, Italy.  I'm soooo excited!  Thank you for reading .....

Considering it was a chill day and one can do many many 'things' on board from sunrise until the early hours of the morning, you write with informatively with a nice touch of humour thrown in.......
