After the glitch with the net for a few days on the ship while going through the Pacific, we are back on,dont know for how long. We are docking in Maui,second largest hawaiian Island tomorrow to do the 10000 feet to see the Volcano.
We had a great time in the Dutch Island of Curacao and did our own sight seeing in San Francisco.It hasnt changed much from when we were here about 5 years ago.
Things are very good so far on board the ship. Food is plenty although the vegetarian choice is limited though the waiters try to make it easier for us. Even the food at Indian Nights is not spicey! The waiters are at hand for us with the Tabasco and the Mild Indian Pickle from their own supply!?
The entertainment is all done by Professionals,They have P&Os own Headliners Theatre Company doing musicals by some talented youngsters. we have had Show business people like Gary Wilmot,Bobby Davro
Bruce Morrison,Bonnie Langford etc., The Theatre and the Cinema are with comfortable seats,space and excellent view for audience as good as in Land!
Gossip: We had two couple forced to disembark at St.Lucia for indulging in fistycuffs in the Launderette!one of them was booked to do the World Voyage! One person was taken off the ship at Panama canal for a Medical Emergency. One Person was warned at the dinner table for making nasty remarks about Jews! We get all sorts in this big ship!
What amazes us is the number of people on board who are with sticks,walkers,wheel chairs,pace makers and oxygen! I suppose one has to say good luck to them for making the most what they can in their lifetime, but it really slows others down when they come out with the organised tours!
