Hi Jacqui!

Just got caught up and so enjoying

Your cruise through your writings.

I so hope DH will be better soon. Was there a lot of rocking and rolling heading out of FLL last night?

I look forward to tomorrow having my coffee and reading your adventures!

Denise:)

We noticed on the cruise trackers that the Prinsendam hadn't made as much progress as we expected in 24 hours. Some times the trackers are a bit behind, but my theory was that there could be bad weather over by Bermuda and he was going slow to let it blow over before getting there. The captain knows what he is doing and will try and minimise any discomfort, but elimination is not always possible.

 

I wish a speedy gain of sea legs for all those who are suffering.

We all had different choices and everyone thought it was delicious!

The peanut butter silk pie:

 

Gigianne's DH says it's the best dessert on the ship.

Seas were not as bad (I thought) this morning but it still was rocking.

 

By the afternoon, it had smoothed out and the waves are at the front so the P'dam can cut through and, it's a smooth ride IMO. :). (DH may disagree ;) )

You mean when I'm on Pdam in December, if Linda is aboard, no more signature line????
