Another great day aboard the ms Rotterdam. It is really scorching out by the pool. The temps today were supposed to be around 86 degrees F but around the pool deck it seemed closer to 100…. I started this morning with a relaxing massage in the Spa. I really enjoyed it. This afternoon I went for a nice walk on the upper deck which felt pretty good but it was hotter than Hades. Tonight we have a formal night which I love. I like extremes, either formal or casual… nothing in between. The Grand World Voyage continues to click on all cylinders. I even sent a note to the Hotel Manager today complimenting the fine work of Manny Cabanela, the head deck steward from the Philippines. He’s such a dedicated, hardworking guy he deserves some recognition. Great customer service, just like HAL likes it…. Tomorrow is another great day at sea.
