    Pacific Ocean

    April 17, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ 🌙 68 °F

    Today is Wednesday. I know that because my elevator told me so.

    Walking the Promenade Deck after breakfast has become our daily routine. What a great way to start the day! Reading on the balcony and watching the Pacific Ocean float by ain't bad either.

    There are many dining options on board and tonight we chose Asian. We started with something called a Ritz Cocktail in the lounge of the restaurant watching the sun set over the Pacific.

    We ended with some very unusual desserts. The middle of the meal was filled with much more food than we could possibly eat.

    Check out our "Doggie Bag " in the picture.

  • Day24

    Pacific Ocean

    April 15, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    The first thing that hits you about this ship is the cleanliness.

    And the genuine friendliness of the entire staff. They are not working for tips. All of that is included in the fare. The meals are outstanding and we love the fresh fruit delivered to our stateroom every morning.

    Denny and I walked the Promenade Deck after breakfast passing underneath our designated lifeboat on each lap. We had a mandatory muster drill before we left port so we would know where to go in case of . . .

    Sunsicle rum drinks in the Crow's Nest and balcony reading filled the afternoon followed by the Gala Dinner this evening.

    We could get used to this.

  • Day31

    Kauai, Hawaii (Almost)

    April 22, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 79 °F

    The Captain's announcement explained in detail why he had to turn the Eurodam around. The seas were just too rough to dock safely at Nawiliwili on the island of Kauai. So for us it meant no:

    Kauai Coffee Plantation
    Kilohana Plantation Estate
    Koloa Rum Company
    Kauai Plantation Railway Ride

    Oh well. We found some other stuff to do on board ship. Like:

    Reading on the balcony
    Watching the Ben Affleck movie Pearl Harbor
    Eating ice cream cones on the Promenade Deck
    Playing video poker in the Casino
    Playing Scrabble in the Game Room

    😎 😎

  • Day25

    Pacific Ocean

    April 16, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 66 °F

    What time is it? What date is it? What day is it?

    All relevant questions when traveling across several different time zones. Then throw in the fact that some places like Arizona and Hawaii don't observe Daylight Saving Time.

    What a mess!

    Our usually reliable Smartphone kept us on track during this whole trip - until now. My phone at this minute is telling me it's 2:52. I have no idea what day it thinks it is.

    It is actually 6:52 PM on Tuesday, April 16. The Captain announced this morning that we will be gaining another hour some time today. The staff changes the rugs daily in the elevators to make sure we know the day. 😊

    Speaking of the Captain - nice chap from New Zealand name of John Scott. He has spent 44 years at sea so we feel pretty safe in his hands. He also announced this morning that we have about 12,000 feet of Pacific Ocean under us right now and we are right on schedule for arrival at Lahaina on Maui on Friday.

    Our wonderful neighbors sent us some great pictures of our blooming redbuds back at our house. Thank you, Peggy and Steve!

    Sending blooming thoughts to all. 🌸

    Ahhhh.... Sea Days

    January 11, 2018, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 38 °C

    I think it’s a little hard to explain why we all love sea days on the ship so much. This is our 4th sea day in a row and we generally feel like it isn’t enough. (You mean we have to get off the ship tomorrow?) It’s a departure from all the obligations, both actual and self-imposed, that allow for days of reading, walking, computering and general relaxing. Not to even mention the lectures and other activities available on the ship.
    Lunch for me consists of one giant salad bar. Five kinds of greens-really? Evidence seems to be mounting that I may have been a rabbit in a former life.
    It all leads up to happy hour with Nancy and Jim (and sometimes another passenger on the ship if they dare) and a wonderful Silversea dinner followed by entertainment if one chooses.
    We have maintained our reputation on the ship as “those people who laugh all the time”. The ship crew keeps the Prosecco flowing and the Silver Spirit martinis mixed. What is not to like about a sea day?

    Sea day 4 - a dogs life!

    January 19, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    You know we really like sea days! All you have to decide is what activities to do and when and what to eat and drink!
    We decided to do the morning quiz- 2nd yet again and the a lecture on a camper van journey through Europe, Turkey, Iran, the 'is tans' , Russia and back to UK! 4 months travel and 19000 miles! Interesting!
    This was followed by lunch with the 4 Cyprus couples on board! Interesting!!!
    Then the next canal presentation. This time on engineering features on canals in UK. Interesting but I knew most of it!
    A formal gala dinner followed the usual show and then a late night Beatles session in one of the bars.
    The dog was our stewardesses contribution to the day!!

    Pacific Ocean

    April 14, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

    Do you know what we did today?

    Absolutely NOTHING!

    After three weeks on the road we took a day off. Read on the balcony. Room service for food. Watched a movie. Took a nap.

    Great day.

  • Day20

    The Day!

    January 18, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Yes this was the day when the ship transited the Canal. I suppose it was the main reason we booked this cruise and likewise for many of our fellow passengers we have discovered. The day was beautiful, and we stood most of the day watching the whole thing from the upper decks.
    The transit takes around 8 hours and is a very slick operation. Trains called 'mules' keep the ship in the centre of each pound (3 on the way up to Gatun Lake and 3 on the way down to Panama City and the Pacific Ocean) but the ships engines actually drive the ship through. A small yacht from Holland was in front of us on the way down. We towered above them of course but they were very friendly and didn't seem at all phased by the huge scale of things.Read more

  • Day27

    Pacific Ocean

    April 18, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ 🌙 72 °F

    We did a lot of walking on the Promenade Deck today and then explored some of the upper decks among the smokestacks. The sun went down and the moon came up. It will be full tomorrow so ... Wahoo!

  • Day19

    A Day at Sea Off the Coast of Panama

    January 17, North Pacific Ocean ⋅ 🌙 26 °C

    Our day started with a first-stage alarm going off at 6:30 am. It was a false alarm but it does make one think about safety, fire being the biggest risk. Safety is taken seriously. On day one it was mandatory that we attend a drill by gathering at our muster station, or “mustard station” as JS insists on calling it. Roll call was taken. A couple of days later the crew had a drill right up to stage three where all the lifeboats were prepared for rescue. Today I attended a presentation by the captain who spoke about safety features, such as 37,000 sprinkler heads, as well as the general operation of the ship from the bridge.

    The rest of the day was very relaxing....eating, reading, napping, walking and more eating. I went to another kitchen demo and a class on flower arranging. There is one florist and his budget for our two week cruise is a whopping $4600! His floral arrangements are beautiful. This evening was a dress-up event. JS and I took advantage of a free dinner at the fine dining restaurant, courtesy of CAA. It was one of the perks for booking our cruise through CAA, along with a $50 beverage card for each of us. Cocktails or wine are about $12 after taxes and an automatic 15% tip so needless to say we haven’t been drinking much. JS has been anxious to try a cocktail called “Penicillin” made with Islay scotch.
