Despite being at sea all day, we arise early. No lie in this morning. To do so, would mean waiting a long time for our cabin to be cleaned by our steward. In vacating the room early, it enables the cabin to be ready for us to use, once we’ve returned from breakfast. Our steward is named Rupesh and has been excellent during our cruise. To be fair, all the stewards that I have encountered have been a credit to P&O.

Try and plan the afternoon activities. There is a Strictly performance, followed by a Peter Andre meet and greet. We will do our up most to do both.

Despite our best laid plans, we attend Strictly, but are unable to get to see Mr Andre. It is clear his popularity was underestimated, and far too many passengers turned up to see him. Going to try again tomorrow, but leave extra early. While waiting to get into the theatre, I overheard some passengers complaining about their balcony and the absence of marine life spotted. Apparently, they were expecting to see dolphins, whales and tortoise. The fact tortoise is land based and do not live in the sea is just one of hundreds of things wrong with the complaint.

Had the most disappointing evening meal of the cruise to date. The main course was a chestnut and mushroom pudding. Two tiny flakes of chestnut lay on top of a pastry pudding; which, when cut into, spilt mushrooms all over my bowl. I don’t mind mushrooms in moderation, but this was overkill and reminded me of the scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, where the large snake is sliced into.

Went back to the cabin, early and hungry to enjoy the still hot evening sun and spectacular views over the Mediterranean.

  • 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.
