Day 2 – At Sea

Clocks moved forward 1 hour during the night. We slept soooo well!

The Breakfast special was poached eggs and spinach with a cheese sauce on brioche! Wonderful. Complimented with fresh hot coffee. A couple from Nova Scotia, Brian and Debbie chatted with us over breakfast.

10am and along with several hundred other passengers we went to listen to the port lectures on Copenhagen, Stockholm and St Petersburg in the theatre.

The weather today is not great 17 degrees, a little choppy and the sky cloudy.

After a quick browse round the watches in the busy shopping area we settled in the Solarium, a covered pool area in an Indian theme.

One interesting fact I was told last night was that this 90,000 ton ship is small! Apparently this ship can fit in the centrium of the Oasis class of ships that are almost 300,000 tons!

I had a huge salad for lunch followed by much needed rest.

Adele and explored Deck 12 and 13 ….they have a climbing wall, pool with curly slides, small football court, crazy golf, a running track and places to sit.

The evening was formal night and a chance to meet the Captain. Interestingly when I asked what happened to Chandris Cruises a Greek cruise line I remember from my childhood, he told me it became Celebrity.

We booked 8pm dinner as this was available online before we cruised as a My Time Dining option with a request to be seated on a table of 8-10 persons.

After queuing for around 20 minutes we were told politely that there was only a table for 2. A mixed table would be avialable but later on. After waiting 40 minutes we complained and the Maitre D’ sat us on a table for 2.

We had a lovely meal and sat chatting with a delightful couple from Seattle called Adam and Teresa.

After dinner we chatted and watched the late evening show with a young couple from Pinner, London called Graham and Suzanne. The show was presented by a group called the ZOOTS who presented music from the 60s. Everyone was on their feet dancing in the rows.

We agreed to meet up with Graham and Suzanne in the morning to go ashore with them to look around Copenhagen.
