This is considered a mild crossing but there are several guests down in their cabins suffering from sea sickness. But we are ok - I have put on a seasickness patch and William has taken Dramamine. The weather is foggy, so there is not much to see outside. At one point I go up to the Chart Room to try to capture the feel of the ship and spray on its bow.
I haven't discussed the ship's food in the blog so far, so this may be a good spot.
Breakfast is served buffet style. It has a good variety and the staff does a great job of keeping the food fresh and warm. Lunch is also served buffet style. There's always a variety of salads, vegetables, three proteins and a chef carving another protein at the end of the buffet. There are desserts as well as a cheese and fruit selection. Waiters come to the tables with smiling faces offering soup and beverages and clearing dishes as they go.
From 6:30 to 7:30 each evening the staff does a Recap in the Lounge. They highlight some of the activities of the day and in 10 minute segments the Naturalists provide new information or perspectives. There are beverages of choice as well as bar snacks and passed appetizers before and during Recap.
On some evenings we return to the ship lounge for a night cap. William is pleasantly surprised by the large variety of single malt scotches which are available.
