The sunrise this morning was quite spectacular as we sailed slightly South of Westward. Joined Jenny for breakfast and then she went off to Tai Chi, I went down to the Cabaret Lounge for the cooking demonstration by the Executive Chef and the Maitre. This was followed by a visit to the ship's galley, much more compact as is to be expected.
It is surprising how quickly we've found familiar faces amongst both the passengers and the crew. There's a real "small country town" feel about the ship and I'm convinced that much of that is due to the relaxed nature of the Captain as well as the reduced size of the ship.
After an early lunch we attended the destination lecture for Singapore, it was interesting to see the various attractions that had been selected. Jenny stayed on for the "Dancing with the Stripes". The ship's version of the TV show with the on-board dancers being teamed with some of the Officers. I elected to spend the time at the keyboard. Jenny came back with high praise for the event, she claimed it to have been the "best hour" she'd spent this cruise.
Most enjoyable dinner, best chicken and chips and way too much - but I ate it anyway. Disembarkation documents have been delivered, stark reminder that the end of the cruise is almost with us. Another of the over-rated 'production' shows so we may make an early night of it.
We arrive in Ko Samui tomorrow morning, we've noticed a change of course as we are now sailing NorthWestward. I'll upload a sunrise image from this morning. You'll find it on my 365 Project http://365project.org/tonydebont/365/2014-04-03
