There usually is at least one day at sea and on this cruise we had two. They are not my favourite days but you learn to make the most of it. After all, we are floating on a huge resort and you need at least one day to explore it.
Where to first....breakfast! Each day the floor of the elevator shows us what day it is which is good because on holidays it is hard to remember.
After breakfast we went to the well equipped gym and we exercised while looking out at the ocean.
A walk around the ship makes you almost forget that you are contained miles away from land.
In the afternoon we searched for a quiet, shaded spot to read. It was 29 degrees Celsius and neither of us wanted a bad burn. Most people choose a spot around the pool area. I took this in the morning before the sunbathers found their way to the pool.
At night we always chose to go the formal dining room. The food was amazing and the service was fantastic. Over the week I had seafood pasta, cod, duck, lamb and lobster and I won't tell you all the desserts but lets just say I have been exercising hard to wear off two nights of crème brulee.
