We have dinner each night at 7:30 pm in the dining room. It is located at the stern of the ship on two levels, floors 4 and 5. From your seat there is a panoramic view of the ocean and the distant horizon. Tonight’s special red wine was Chateau Smith so we had to try it. It was a very nice Cabernet from the state of Washington.
We are very fortunate to have the same Captain as we had in 2013. He is very experienced, super cautious and we were pleased to have dinner with the Captain on a recent sea day. Next year will be Captain Mercer’s last year as he plans on retiring after the 2020 World Cruise. When not on the ship he lives in Merritt Island (Cocoa Beach) in Florida.
One more sea day and we are then docked in Tonga.
