Happy Valentine’s Day everyone, hope all is well at home with everyone, miss you all. I am very happy I started this blog, funny as it sounds this feels like I am talking to you guys each and every day, It has been very comforting to me and I think has helped me not feel homesick. Thank you everybody for all of your notes & comments, it is nice to hear back from you.
Another great weather day, look at that beautiful deep blue calm sea!
As a celebration of Valentine’s Day the ship’s singers and dancers put on an afternoon show of the love songs of Burt Bacharach, what a nice treat. The Main dining room is fully decorated in the Valentine’s theme, plus there are beautiful flower arrangements all over the ship. We elected to dine in the Cannalatto restaurant which is one of the specialty restaurants but does not cost extra. This restaurant specializes in Italian food the Penne in Vodka sauce, veal, and seafood linguine are all very good, we have dined here 3 or 4 times already. After dinner we went to the movie, it was so bad even the captain and his wife walked out.When we arrived back to our room a nice surprise gift awaited us, chocolates, and a Steiff bear key chain.
