Dawn Princess World Cruise 2010 - Saturday June 5, 2010

Day 16 Langkawi into the Bay of Bengal
Today was a day at sea. We went to our dancing class to learn the quick step, which proved quite a difficult task because the seas were so rough. Every time we went to put our foot down the floor of the ship was not where we expected it. Even our dance instructor was rolling around. We went to a talk by our on board historian who was an ex English diplomat. Today’s topic was India from Raj to Radioactivity. At the moment we are in our room watching Geelong and West Coast play. It is half time and the score is even. Bill is quite anxious as Geelong has just lost their first quarter or twenty one quarters in a row. (Barbara) Choir practice continued today at sea. Progress is good but the jobs of the professionals on board are not under threat. Some of the gym equipment was off limits today because of the rolling ship. I was the only person on the promenade deck at 5 pm this afternoon - quite strange when there are 2000 people in the same floating hotel. After 3 nights eating at Horizons, we went back to our table 91 in the Florentine restaurant with the people we have already got to know very well, Roger and Judy, Denis and Anne, Peter and Ingrid, Marilyn and Jeanette.

In the photo, the deck is actually deck 6 not deck 5.
