At Sea - Day 1 Of 3
Wednesday February 22nd - Day 49
Feel quite tired this morning after losing another hour
(clocks forward) last night and I'm reading the daily Seabourn Herald and find
that as we are now going directly east they are going to 'pinch' another hour
off me tonight!!
Cloudy start today but still hot and balmy so we should be
able to spend a pleasant afternoon on deck.
As there's not a lot going on today I'll give you a quick
photo tour of Seabourn Square and some of the artworks around the ship.
Seabourn Square is the meeting place on the ship for teas,
coffee, snacks, reading the papers, doing the jigsawand generally getting together. It also holds
guest services in the centre of The Square who take care of any problems that
may arise and generally give advice on matters around the ship and with destination
services and future cruise sales on one side
of The Square...it can really be a busy hub especially when the weather is not
too kind. If you like your tea & coffee in relative peace and quiet there
is an outside area at the back of The Square with comfy chairs and settees with
a view over the stern of the ship.
As we are coming to the end of our cruise - only five days
to go... boo hoo - I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the blog
followers both at home in the UK, onboard and around the world for all their
lovely comments about the blog and a special mention to Brian and Margaret, previous
world cruisers, who I'm sure won't mind me sharing their blog comment to us with
"Hi Helen and
It sounds like you are
having an amazing time. Helen's blog and all the photographs have brought back
so many memories of life on Seabourn and we've spotted quite a few familiar
faces on the pics.
I bet you can't believe that you are on your
last week. Life on the' outside' is hard to adjust back to. Actually I think
that Helen has missed her calling. Her blog is such compulsive reading and so
funny and informative that I think that Seabourn should pay you both to
constantly cruise on their ships and write blogs of your travels. It would be
the best marketing tool ever. If it comes off don't forget your friends
We'll keep in touch
and we'll keep reading your blog and hope that you have another wonderful week
on the ship.
Bye for now.
Love and best wishes
Margaret and Brian"
Thanks Brian and Margaret - great idea re Seabourn
marketing. I will suggest it to them!!
Another hour forward tonight making us now seven and a half
hours ahead of UK time...I think.
