We went to one of the bars last night, to see Kai McKenzie – a tribute to Michael Buble. As with all the entertainment we have seen on this cruise, Kai was very good, and I am sure Mr Buble himself would approve.

I awoke this morning very rough conditions at sea. The live map, we view on our cabin’s television, suggests we were close to southern Portugal, but given the cold, windy weather and grey water, we may as well have been back in Southampton.

We left our cabin early, to beat the crowds and get breakfast. After eating, we left, feeling a little sick (due to the ship’s movement), before exploring the ship. When I first went aboard, almost two weeks ago, I hardly knew my way around. Now I know the ship’s decks like the back of my hand.

Every one of our fellow cruisers seemed to be out. After all, it was far too blustery to sunbathe. A few days ago, we had ordered some duty free spirits. We collected these, before returning to our cabin.

Since then, we have packed the majority of our bags and suitcases (with a tear in our eye), and spent the afternoon playing Monopoly. Yes! Sodding Monopoly. No lying our balcony in this weather – we’ve even turned off the air conditioning, from the coldest setting, and put the heating on! It’s sods laws, though, that as I write this blog, the sun is coming out – just before we get ready to go out for the evening!

Mr Weatherman, I know we are heading north, but please give us some nice, hot sun tomorrow. We would absolutely love one last day on our amazing balcony, before we return to England and normality, on Sunday. Thanks.

Oh, and before I forget, we have some right chavvy neighbours. I’ll ignore the fact they played music for hours. The thing which annoyed me was today, when one of the female members of the room, threw what appeared to be a cheese roll overboard. All cruisers we strictly told that we must not throw anything into the sea. What if a dolphin ate the roll, the careless woman to chuck from her cabin? It’s poor cholesterol levels. Goodness only knows how these people got onto this cruise – probably won it with a packet of pork scratchings.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
