Our first full day at sea began with a knock on the door from one of the stewards delivering coffee and juice at 7:30. We enjoyed the ocean view and I did some photo editing. We are on the 11th deck toward the back (stern) on the starboard (right) side. The breakfast buffet is all the way forward on the 15th deck. We journeyed to breakfast and later MA elected to go to the “Sanctuary”, an area on the boat reserved for adults and a designated quiet place for sunning, swimming, reading, and, yes, even cookies and milk in the afternoon.
I went back to the room to solve a Greek puzzle. Every time I brought up the blog to post, all the links were in Greek. When someone says, “That’s Greek to me,” I now understand what they mean. I managed to solve the problem and got the blog posted that you read yesterday.
Spent most of the rest of the day editing pictures from Venice. Some of the best were taken on the sail-away which you see on the blog.
Wandered around the ship, checking out things, then we tried our hand at the Trivia game and got 11 of 20 right. Oh well! Who knew what musical instrument used to be known as a “kit” (Violin) or what type of fruit is known as a tsatsami (orange).
We met some really nice people from Canada at the coffee bar. Supper was at 8:30 and met our other two table mates, Bob and Peggy from Manchester, England. Bob is a taxi driver and an avid Manchester United football (soccer) fan. These two days are our “laid-back” at-sea days. On Friday it’s put on the walking shoes and get ready to spend a full day ashore in Greece. Wonder if Zorba’s still around! Later !!
