Today is the first of the two sea days we have before we reach our next port in Panama. We slept late to make up for our lost hour of sleep and then had our usual continental breakfast in the Neptune Lounge. At 10:00 we attended a talk by travel guide Kainoa on Fuerte Amador, Panama, our next port.
After that we met with the future cruise consultant and booked a cruise called the Voyage of the Vikings, which won’t be until July of 2016. It is 35 days long and will be our longest cruise we have taken. It looks like a very interesting cruise and visits Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, The Netherlands and the UK. Even though it is a year and a half away, we are looking forward to it. The cruise is a round trip from Boston so we will have to put our aversion to flying aside for this trip.
After that it was back to our room until Val left for her team trivia. When she returned (the Smarty Pants had won again) we went up and had lunch. After lunch we wandered the ship a bit and ended up spending some time in the casino a then it was back to the room.
I’m not sure what it was, but I wasn’t feeling too well so I spent the rest of the day resting. I had an ear infection a week before we left which is gone, but I think I may be feeling some of the residual from that. I wasn’t too hungry so we skipped our usual evening routine and ordered room service and had dinner in our room. It was early to bed for me with hopes of feeling better tomorrow, which thankfully is another sea day.
