Yesterday we received the shock news that we are going home, so the cruise is starting to wind down, Other than a very competitive Baggo match against Engineering, today was a rather quiet and relaxing day. Quite a contrast to tomorrow, which will be busy.
Note: above photo is one I found on the laptop when flying home yesterday that I hadn’t posted. It is from Dubai, so some participates had already left the ship in Dubai. This was after the Officers v’s pax match, which the pax won by almost 100 points.
The Viking Sun inter-departmental baggo challenge is heating up, with many departments squeezing in extra practice sessions. Today was our 2nd match, with the above photo showing Judi during round 1, on the lowest stair.
Today, all 8 of us volunteered to assist Beven and the Cruise Staff completing an inventory of all the books and returning them to the correct locations. Apparently, it normally takes a couple of weeks, as Viking ships have hundreds of library books in multiple locations. It is also on the honour system, so no checking out books on Viking, as you are free to select any book, at any time. Yet again, Viking passengers are treated like adults.
We also entered the Red Sea this morning and cleared the high risk area by early afternoon, so smooth sailing now towards Suez.
