Second of two sea days started with the pirate drill. Basically from Sri Lanka until Sharm el sheikh we have to shut the promenade deck from sunset to sunrise and ensure all curtains are drawn as well as balcony lights out. Should the alarm sound then we have to return too our cabin areas and sit in the corridor outside the cabin and await further instruction. We have also been warned not to be alarmed if we see men carrying arms around the ship they are part of the additional security. - What if they are black and speak with a west African accent? I'd be very alarmed.
Pirate drill over and done with and it was back to the pool and lounging around by the pool. Incidentally the pool is shut this morning as the rolling of the sea has made it like an Hawaiian beach.
This leg is a shorter one than the last and the result is that there are more people on board for a short two week blast. This is a good thing as the night life is more vibrant. Last night there was a drama in the theatre! We do like a drama. We were not there but just as the classical violinist was gearing up
For her performance there was a bit of a leak from the theatre roof. This prompted a bit of huffing and puffing from the old 'uns. Whilst they were all looking at the source of the leak several roof panels collapsed and down came a could of hundred gallons of water! This prompted the worlds slowest stampede and the closure of the theatre until further notice. Now the funny side of this is the people at the classical concert now. Needed new entertainment. A fair percentage were drawn into the karaoke evening (where we were) its fair to say they didn't last long there! Far to lively.
