We are still apparently traveling in international waters subject to some risk of piracy. So when we look out the dining room window we get a bit of a glimpse of barbed wire along the side of the ship. It strikes me as a bit strange to think that we still have piracy in this day and age, but on reflection we still have the age old crimes of theft and murder, so it seems we just have to adapt and take precautions.
Anyway, on a happier note, we can finally report on some success on capturing some images of the Milky Way from our cruise ship when it is underway.
So, in the morning after that success, I went up to the Explorers Lounge bar on deck 7 and celebrated with great daytime views of the sea and celebrate of course with a martini! Yep, that is my martini on the bar! It must be 5:00 somewhere!
And later when I met up with Resident Astronomer Peggy at the Viking Bar on deck 1, our martinis were close at hand as our experienced waiter had no trouble navigating to our spot.
So, now we just wait as we continue on this journey and watch the ships wake as we move forward to the next port of call.
