Today is a day at sea so today's veranda view isn't terribly exciting.
We're in the Ionian Sea, about 100 miles south of the mainland of Greece. It's warm, about 80f and there's nowhere to go so the pool deck is crammed. So we're sitting in the panorama lounge, looking out over the stern of the ship where it's cool and quiet.
This morning we had some of those “only on a cruise ship” events. First of all there was an edition of “Ready Steady Cook” between the Cruise Director (in charge of entertainment) and the Restaurant Manager. Then we went to the bar for a talk on the history of the martini, complete with demonstrations, and of course, tastings.
Tonight we have a cocktail reception to attend, followed by dinner with one of the ships officers, then off to the show lounge for a Night At The Opera.
Busy, Busy, Busy.
