Sixth day and Sea day. We woke up later than usual. The day was a lazy one with winds whirring, but the sun was shining in all its glory, at least for part of the time. We lay on our backs in the observation deck and I actually fell asleep. We went around the boat, just chilled – twas actually a chill day, as advertised. We went to the library, checked out books, went to a show, played a little casino, went to watch the lecture about the boat and met the captain and the senior engineer who answered questions from the peanut gallery. We went on deck where every body seemed to be at the time with cameras in hand and some binoculars too. We spotted some whales (tails only) at a distance and enjoyed as much of the scenery this part of Alaskan/Canadian border offers. I could not get enough of this beauty before me.
At 7:30 pm, we caught the show at Stardust Lounge called Cirque Pan, a combination of Peter Pan and Cirque du Soleil. It was amazing really. Acrobats rule the show. Afterwards, Matt, the cruise director, called on stage members (some of them at least) of the crew from the housekeeping dept, front desk, kitchen, etc to receive the guests admiration, applause, and standing ovation.
Dinnertime was at East West Steakhouse. At 9:15, we headed to the Level 12 and had a very good experience. We had for appetizers crab cakes for me and beef steak tomato salad for my husband; for soup and salad I had clam chowder, Roy had something that he and I could not remember at this time; for entrees, I had the veal chops and he had the medium rare tuna steak. We had desserts too. I had mocha crème brulee, hubby had banana foster.
