M and I are currently on the ship travelling to Ireland. We left the house at 6:30am, boarded the ship at 9am and set sail at 10:30. We have walked all the decks, used the two restaurants for tea and snack and I am eagerly awaiting our lunch at 1pm.
We got a standard cabin, as I was unaware that you could have a luxury suite, so next time I may go for an upgrade.
So far the sailing is smooth, but we are expecting a storm front to hit about 1pm, which will last until we leave the ship at 7pm tonight. A long day, especially if it gets choppy, but I admit it, I quite like being at sea. Now don’t get me wrong, I love to fly, it is my preferred method of travel, but there is so much room, we have our own bathroom, and are not strapped into a tube of recycled air like cattle in a cart.
After lunch, we may have to visit the cinema and have a nap. Knackered as my insomnia took over at about 3am. That is, I am blaming my alertness on insomnia, but it may be guilt on leaving the dogs at the kennels yesterday. I say guilt, but we are sitting here as I am writing this talking about our planned trip to Rome next year and what we will be doing, so maybe not so guilty.
