As the sun rose above the horizon this morning, the sea captured an amazing reflection, and was one of the most interesting sunrises we have seen in a while.
We have had very little downtime the last two days and today we rested in our cabin and prepared for our next independent overland adventure tomorrow. After we arrive in Phu My on Wednesday we start our 2 night, 3 day adventure to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. We will rejoin the ship in Sihanoukville, Cambodia on Friday.
Juggler Tempei was the guest on Good Moring Amsterdam and he discussed his childhood in Japan and how he came to be in show business.
Judy and I hibernated until our respective must do events – Arts & Crafts and Texas Hold’em at 2:30. Judy started a multi-day project in crafts and my lucky cards are on a temporary (hopefully) vacation.
Today’s weather was beautiful, near perfect, but both pools were surprisingly empty. I suspect that everyone is pretty much wiped out from the last two days and needed to rest inside their cabins on soft beds.
It is usually quite rare to see trash in the ocean, but unfortunately, today became one of the rare days where we saw a lot of trash, mainly Styrofoam floating around the ship. Not sure where it came from, but one possibility was garbage barges that take trash hither and yon with trash falling overboard along the way. It could also have originated from the many fishing boats in the area. As we passed near Phu Quy Island after sunset, the sea became dotted with the white lights of the many fishing boats in the area.
The Pinnacle Grill was all decked out for a special Vietnamese dinner which was offered for a special surcharge of $79. We didn’t attend.
After another fantastic dinner in the main diningroom, we went to our normal seats in the Queens Lounge, on the left side of the balcony right by the railing. Australian vocalist Annie Frances was the headliner tonight and she was fantastic, easily one of the best singers we have seen this cruise. I particularly enjoyed her rendition of “Waltzing Matilda” and she did a wonderful job of explaining the meaning of the song and how it captures the spirit of Australians.
I will try and keep up with the blog over the next few days, but the availability of internet on this side trip is unknown at present.
