Day 11 At Sea
Well, about today…. All I can say is that from a weather perspective this is the coldest, most overcast Caribbean Cruise I have ever seen. I’m not sure a bright sunny day will be in the offing on this voyage. What a difference a week makes. My dermatologist is thrilled…. It’s a good thing I am on a magnificent ship otherwise I would be seriously depressed. Today we had the Mariner’s cocktail party and award presentations. It was a very nice affair, well done. Tomorrow we are in Grand Cayman, one of my favorites but the weather forecast isn’t optimistic. Apollonia & I are (fingers crossed) are planning on going to the section of 7 mile beach where I introduced her to Allan & Sandra a few years ago. It’s a shame they aren’t here. By now they are out of the Denver cold and enjoying Puerto Rico awaiting the World Voyage. Tomorrow night I will be dining with the Hotel Manager Marco Van Belleghem and his wife Karen in the Pinnacle Grill enjoying their “Le Cirque” night. I continue to be amazed how much I really love this ship. It’s not just the ship itself, it’s the crew, service and all the intangibles that make for a great voyage. Just imagine how I would like if the weather wasn’t crap….. As I was trying to post this I was reminded of something I don't care for on this ship... The internet is very, very slow and intermittent. MTN needs to step it up. If you are going to sell a service, provide it. I am not saying it needs to be high speed but it should be much more reliable that it is in this part of the world.
