Great day at sea!!!! It just couldn’t have been better today unless of course we had Sparky, Aart & Yvonne here with us…... It’s just not the same without our friends here. I hope they realize they are in our thoughts every day. Allan, Sandra & I were poolside for most of the day. Tonight we had our first formal night along with the Captain’s welcome toast. After the Captain’s party I went to dinner and it was fabulous as usual. It is so nice that the Restaurant Manager, Tom Grindlay, arranged for me to have Made Arsawan, the same waiter from last year… It’s the little details that elevate Holland America above the rest. (Except for the Maasdam) Tonight we also had the first of our “headliner” entertainers, Mitzi Gaynor. She put everything she had into her show. She may have had her best days behind her but she is still a great entertainer…. Tomorrow we will be in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica.
