The ship is a little lively this morning as we continue a Southwesterly course off the West coast of Norway. The overnight conditions were calmer than predicted and the rain is just a series of light showers.
Our schedule is pretty much standard for a Sea Day. Destination Lecture covering Geiranger and Haugesund, Battle for Britain lecture by Frank Sandstrom and after lunch the afternoon movie "Lion" featuring Nicole Kidman, Dev Patel and Rooney Mara.
It is a formal night so we will 'dress up' a bit even though we are dinning in the buffet.
Lovely dinner in the buffet and with more staff than passengers the waiters were almost falling over each-other to top up water, clear used plates and help with the chair. They are normally very good but without the crowd to obstruct them, tonight they were brilliant.
Tonight's show is an Around the World musical journey by piano entertainer "Naki Ataman" with the backing of the drummer and base guitarist from the house band. Naki took us on a whirlwind ride through 20 countries playing a medley of iconic tunes from each. After 50 minutes of non-stop play he received a well-earned standing ovation. Jenny didn't want to go and I tried to convince her to get dressed and attend the late show. She didn't but I certainly enjoyed this end to the day.
Tomorrow we will visit Hellesylt and Geiranger.
The satellite link is still flaky but I should be able to update my postings.
Today's temperatures were a high of 12 °C and a low of 11 °C. As we sail southward we are experiencing increasing periods of darkness overnight.
Until next time. Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony
