Italy & TransAtlantic Cruise 2012
At Sea

Nov. 17 - 22
Leaving Madeira Friday, Nov. 16 we headed southwest to arrive at Barbados Nov. 22. By now both Marg and I were suffering bad colds, so the time at sea was not as pleasurable as it might otherwise have been.
We took a few shots to give a flavour of the ship.

From the stern our wake is on a very calm sea.
Sunbathers find every nook and cranny to catch the sun.

There are some families with children aboard. Apparently there is activity for the kids.

Before and after dinner we usually sit in the fifth deck lounge (just outside our dining room)
where a trio (piano and two violins) play classical music,
or a duet (guitar and tambourine) play and sing very soft Spanish style music.
The backdrop is a water wall and a pool, but it's hard to see the water.
