Monday, October 31 – Hallowe’en at Sea
It was a typical sea day wherein we continued to perfect our skills at eating, Trivializing and napping. We got closer to the leaders in Trivia today by answering 15 of 20 questions correctly. The winners [for the third straight day] scored 17 or 18; we weren’t listening by then. We continue to improve but, mostly, we are having fun.
The ship-wide Mariner reception was this morning at 11. Although it is not a formal affair and required no RSVP, we received a call yesterday asking if we were coming. We asked Roger and Barbara if they had gotten a call and they had not, so we presumed that we were finally getting our Olympic medals for sailing 500-plus days on HAL. We passed that expensive milestone in 2015 and expected receive them on this year’s Alaska cruise, so, a year-and-a-half later, we finally got them. The 100-day and 300-day medallions went to The Boys one year at Camp Grandma for Excellence in Diving into the Pool. Or something.
Tonight’s entertainment was a singing group – a family, actually – who perform an ABBA tribute. We have seen them before and enjoyed the show just as much this time as last.
TOMORROW – Still Adrift in the Atlantic
