Ahoy landlubbers this edition comes from the equator! At 12:30 pm we crossed into the northern hemisphere. This was celebrated with an it's a knockout type contest between the staff (under 30's) and the passengers (over 60's) it was nip and tuck as you can imagine but the passengers held out for a win! Meanwhile there was a beauty pageant for those with their ownTeeth, I gave that a miss.
Wendy was approached today by a woman who asked her if her husband was an ex footballer! I could see where she was coming from, others will see this as further evidence of the degeneration of the eyes as well as the teeth on this trip.
In all seriousness there is a good mix of ages on the ship there is even a children's club with about 25 kids in it every day.
As we have been sailing today we have started to see the first small limestone islands like you would expect around Vietnam / Cambodia. Albeit we are just off the coast of Malaysia. There are also a few oil rigs that you don't really expect to see and we are in a shipping lane so there are loads of tankers and container vessels all around.
Still 31 degrees less humid but plenty of cloud.
Tonight is another full evening dress and karaoke. We'll be there as will Josie who assures us that she always sings we will see.
