Sea Day 9 - Are we there yet!!

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.

Ross.... we all got our crossing the equator certificates today.... I will photocopy it and change the name for you !!

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.....

  1. Joanne. Gibraltar is duty free and the LLadro is lovely and inexpensive, if you like that sort of thing. Get a taxi and go up the hill to see the monkeys which roam free. They are really cute. Also a must to see are the tunnels and the underground amphitheatre. Sorry you are having so many changes - I think we only had one port where we did not get the full allocated time because of engine riblems. I am enjoying your blog and the others as well. Brings back heaps of memories. Who is taking the choir? Cheers Maree
