People were up early this morning to take pictures of the
ship passing the Horn. Seas were the roughest they have been at that time but
the waves have subsided a lot.
I did not go outside for the photos but it was a big deal
for a lot of the onboard guests.
Our plan was to go back to the Restaurant Two for tonight’s
dinner to take in another 5 course dinner experience with the 2-4 mini-servings
with each course.
However the menus were published for this evening and the
prime rib entry has motivated everyone to postpone tonight’s experience until
tomorrow.
So big beef it is tonight.
We passed on the after dinner show and instead most of our
group went up to the 10th deck observation deck for drinks and a fun
joke telling session. I admit starting it and we had a few laughs closing the
bar at 1pm.
The good thing about a sea day is I actually get back to exercising
in the fitness room which is almost a necessity given the amount of caloric
intake that is the greater activity for most of the cruise…especially on a
gourmet chefs cruise like the Seabourn.
Tomorrow is our penguin day as we take the 4X4 jeeps deep
into the Falkland Islands to view three of the
main species that populate that region.
As I have written here before this has been an exceptional
journey…and one I would love to do again with a group like this.
So please consider joining Rae and I on our next hosted
cruise starting January 20, 2014 leaving from Hong Kong with a number of stops
in Thailand and Vietnam before winding up in Singapore.
It is aboard the Seabourn Legend and the itinerary can be
seen on our brochure on our website.
There has been a general consensus that the complementary
excursion we had in Punta Arenas
this week was one of the best if not the best.
Next year our complimentary excursion will be in Viet Nam and it
looks to be a winner as well.
