Day 15 Sat. Nov. 7
48 F, A little quieter, but windy and drizzly.
Up early again, had coffee in the Pavilion where a burial at
sea/scattering of ashes was being done. We covered our coffees. Had
breakfast at the buffet in the Lido, then a smoke and a crossword outside
the theater. Took the Cunard Heritage Tour. It was fairly interesting
except for the woman who'd been on this ship a thousand times
interrupting. Saw all the various memorabilia onboard. Then off to
Lines at the Lido were long, so we headed to the Mauritania. I had a
lackluster salad (never thought I'd miss Sizzler) and a pretty good burger
with brie. Kels lunch sucked. The halibut appetizer wasn't very fresh
and the cod entree was overcooked. Her pineapple parfait was still a
frozen block of solid ice. Went and saw The Negotiator at 2pm. It was
pretty good. Decided to skip the Mauritania for dinner and watch "6 Days
7 Nights" instead. It was only OK. Hit the Lido Buffet for dinner. It
wasn't set up very well. Individualized pasta sauce making is a great
idea, but it holds up a buffet line like nothing else!
We finished by about 8:30 and didn't want to go to sleep yet so we walked
around looking for trouble. The onboard casino has no nickle slots :( At
9pm we went back to the cabin anyway. Too much old-people entertainment.
They need a video game room. : ) We read, watched TV, etc until about
10:30 and then decided to call it a day.
