The seas are starting to look a little busier as we are approaching Singapore..... Lady luck hasn’t been on our side for this cruise. We have had a rained out sailaway from Sydney and now as we sail across the equator our ceremony has been cancelled by the monsoonal conditions.... a day that the majority of passengers have mainly spent inside..... the poor patisserie staff were a bit frazzled.

Usual stuff, Pensioner Zumba, Ballroom Dancing, Trivia ( gosh that can get vicious ) and a game of cards with Col and Judy.
Well today was D day and we were all waiting with baded breathe to see what was going to happen with our cruise.....
