    Sea Day Passing France

    April 24, 2017, Celtic Sea

    Sea Day. This morning we had breakfast at Mamsen's with Frank and Libby Justice. I polished my shoes out on the balcony, and Glenda and I went for a walk. During the walk we noticed that lunch was set up on the Aquavit Terrace. We had Greek sandwiches. I then finished my walk and then took a dip in the pool. I met new friends named Jean and David. David is very conservative and from Massachusetts. He was a world history professor. This afternoon at 4 PM we will take a tour of the galley. We had supper with Frank and Libby Justice and then went to a show featuring Heather Clancy in the theater.Read more

    Auf dem Weg nach Frankreich

    June 16, Celtic Sea

    Heute morgen bin ich ganz entspannt aufgestanden und habe gefrühstückt. Danach habe ich noch meine Nudeln gekocht, die ich mir auf das Schiff mitnehmen wollte.
    Bis Cork waren es 10 km, dort habe ich erstmal noch eingekauft und bin dann nach Ringaskiddy gefahren, wo sich der Hafen von Cork befindet. Dort angekommen, musste ich erstmal meine Fahrkarte kaufen. Eigentlich hatte ich vor eine ganz einfache zu kaufen, heißt ohne Sitz oder Kabine. Die verkaufen die allerdings nur mit Schlafmöglichkeit, somit hatte ich dann eine Koje in einem vier-Bett-Zimmer.
    Ich war sehr pünktlich da, heißt ich durfte noch eineinhalb Stunden warten bis die Fahrradfahrer auf die Fähre durften. Dort angekommen, suchte ich erstmal mein Zimmer auf und ich hatte Glück und dich hatte es komplett für mich alleine.
    Bei der Abfahrt stand ich natürlich draußen, danach bin ich dann aber in mein Zimmer gegangen und habe Netflix geguckt. Irgendwann habe ich dann alles ausgemacht und habe geschlafen. Ich habe eigentlich ganz gut geschlafen.

    Day 1 - At Sea

    October 30, Celtic Sea

    Our suite, 1001, is simply magnificent. Huge living and bedroom area with a good size bathroom. The balcony is massive with table, chairs and loungers. Complementary litre bottles of whisky and gin supplemented with champagne, fresh fruit and canapés.
    1st night was very calm but we both struggled to sleep. Up at 7.30 weather cold but sunny and had breakfast in the Avon restaurant. Very restrained and we both had muesli. Good chat with an elderly couple and then did a speedy 1 mile walk around the deck - 4 laps.
    10.00am to the gym. Ran for 20 mins and 10 mins on bike, J did 10 mins on bike and some Pilates.
    Quick shower and then to Neptune lounge for a talk about Bletchley Park. The start of a series of talks by Bob Horner ex Navy and GCHQ. Very informative.
    Up to The Marquee bar for drink and read before lunch.
    Weather has turned overcast and still quite cold, sea still calm.
    Lunch in Avon, buffet, salad for both of us.
    Went to talk at 2.00pm about flatter tums but was really about acid and alkaline levels. Absolutely fascinating. Don't drink coffee, coke, artificial sweeteners all very acidic. Booked to have our BCA - body composition analysis, done tomorrow at 12.00pm.
    3.00pm talk about Gran Canaria and Las Palmas.
    Sea turned to a swell and then the sickness kick in. J felt sick but wasn't, I was sick several times. No dinner , watch Die Hard film and sleep at 10.00pm.

    Breakfast Now?

    November 6, 2017, Celtic Sea

    We've just been served breakfast at 1:44 in the morning. The local time is really a little past 6:00 AM so I guess that Delta is trying to help us get used to the time difference between Paris and New York but it's just so hard to eat a meal at this hour. I don't have to worry about eating though. The food was awful. Even worse than that herb chicken that we were served before. Delta's breakfast was a cheese biscuit that was very dry, apple butter, a slice of Monterey Jack cheese and unflavored yogurt. I ate everything but the yogurt. Not because I enjoyed it but because I was so hungry. Kathy ate nothing. She didn't like anything that was served. Hopefully we'll get something good to eat when we land in Paris.Read more

    Happy birthday Sheila

    July 11, 2016, Celtic Sea

    We'd booked Chops Grill last night for Sheila's birthday, and had a lovely time.
    Great company and a great meal.
    We are crossing the bay of Biscay at the moment and it's a bit rocky.
    So a lot of people will probably stay in bed late.

    Day 13 - At Sea

    November 11, Celtic Sea

    This is our final full day and we are both looking forward to going home. It's been a nice cruise without being outstanding.
    Weather is good with plenty of sunshine. Seas are calmer as we exit Biscay.
    Breakfast in the Palm and then to Neptune for talk on Sinking the Bismarck by Bob at 9 30am. We want a seat for the Remembrance Day Service at 10.45am. Spa treatments for both of us booked for 4.00pm.
    Yet another excellent presentation by Bob about sinking the Bismarck. Very well told. Stayed in Neptune for the Service.
    I have to say that it was not done very well. Under rehearsed, bad timings including the tannoy cutting in saying the same things being said in the Service. They also held Communion which extended the whole service by at least 20 mins. The last post should have been played but wasn't. A glaring error. The reverend taking it didn't give the audience directions hence half of us ended up standing whilst the other half sat down? Quite amusing but not right. I am also unsure why we sang not one but two verses of God Save the Queen. Oh well.
    Lunch in Avon and to Neptune to hear Jeff's last presentation, Bagels and Bacon 2nd Helpings at 2.00pm.
    Another very funny talk by Jeff covering his childhood experiences and family anecdotes.
    Went to look at the paintings and crafts created by the classes. Some very good paintings. Shame J didn't do her stuff and show them all up!
    Dinner in Palm for final time and then to Neptune.
    It was British night so they started with a good old British sing song which was good fun.
    Then the dancers and singers did a British themed song and dance which as usual was excellent. Finished with good old Land of Hope and Glory and everyone was waving flags and belting out the words. A good finish to our cruise.
    Up at 6.30am tomorrow, ugh!
