What a bummer that the galley tour was not what you expected but it does sound like it had interesting parts so far.

It's too bad that the kitchen tour didn't turn out to be all that informative. I don't like the sound of your next update. You didn't go to the bathroom and miss the whale sighting again, did you?

I can categorically say I wasn't in the bathroom this time... but my goodness, you remember well! You realise that happened on our first Alaskan cruise all the way back in 2011?

What a nice meal at Palo with so many great choices for the brunch. Just so much to chose from. The salmon mousse looks particularly good. Best not to fill up too much before the main course and dessert. Too bad the tour wasn't as good as you were hoping but you got some good info from it.

One day (and I probably say this every time), I will just go and fill up on the buffet choices and forget the menu choices....

It was still enjoyable all the same.

It's like a little peek into their world, isn't it?

Saturday 15 September – part six: I missed wildlife… again?

We emerged about half an hour later from our kitchen galley tour into Rapunzel’s, which was nice, as it finally gave me the chance to get some photos in the restaurant without anyone in shot and I wasn’t the only one doing that.







A nice little touch of theming!












A guy spotted Mark’s Liverpool Football Club T-shirt that he’d put on specially, after learning that they’d won in their latest game, and congratulated him on his team’s win. He said something else and Mark realised that the guy was Sandy, someone he’d been discussing football with on the Facebook group, so they got chatting. They were still chatting about five minutes later, so I told Mark I’d go for a walk around deck four.






Wouldn’t you know it, about the second I left, someone spotted a pod of dolphins alongside the ship? Yep, once again yours truly didn’t get to see them. Why do I ever expect anything any different?

There was still nothing to see as far as the eye could see – and that was quite some distance now – so goodness knows how long it would be before we actually came within sight of land. I completed my lap and headed back down to deck three. I saw Sandy heading off and Mark standing there, so good timing.





We stopped off at the Connect at Sea desk to find out why Mark’s phone won’t find mine on the app and that sorted, albeit with lots of messages constantly now pinging into both our photos we set off. We were going to go to bingo, never having done it before, but honestly it was so intimidating when we walked in there, with people who had lots of paper cards in front of them and handsets. What on earth? Then I saw the price flash up in front of us of one of the packages - $80. Oh my goodness, there was me rather foolishly thinking this would be $5, $10 or $20 at the most. Maybe not… we quickly slipped out of there.

We went for a wander upstairs in the merchandise shops..







In there, we saw one of the assistants using an interesting steam device to get the creases out of T-shirts that presumably they’d just brought up from the storage area, so we chatted to her. No-one seems to have a clue whether there will be any Quebec City merchandise on the next cruise. Apparently they’ll only find out when we get to New York City…

Next: you saw what?
