Sea Princess Sea Day - 06/23/19

23 June 2019 | Bay of Biscay
Slept in until almost 9am since we stayed up well past midnight last night. It was daylight until 10:30 pm last night, which didn't make us feel tired enough to sleep. Watched some tv and played some games. Our ship was listing side to side. I was worried about falling out of bed. Got dressed and walked up to Deck 14, Lido, for breakfast. Another cloudy, dreary and cold morning on the Atlantic Ocean. We are heading north with the coast of France to our starboard, right side. The seas are calmer than last night. After breakfast, we walked on Deck 7. Then I went up to the gym. Mark headed back to our cabin. There were not many passengers in the gym which was nice. I walked the treadmill and worked out on several of their machines. Then headed back to our cabin. We watched some news on tv. Headed back to Deck 14 for a late lunch. We did some more walking out on deck. We were both wearing sleeves as the breeze was cool. Went out to the front deck on our level and took some pictures while Mark got a Garmin signal. When I looked up to the deck above, it was the bridge and the captain was visible. I waved and so did he! After lunch, it was cold enough to bypass water volleyball. Then we headed to the bottom of the atrium for today's Ryder Cup challenge. Mark beat me by one stroke. It's always entertaining to watch everyone else. There were a few people that got a hole in one today. I worked on a puzzle in the library. Then headed to our cabin and showered. We completely forgot our freebee cocktail party. Headed down to dinner at 5:30pm. Had a lovely time with our dinner mates. The other rushed off to get a seat at tonight's Princess Theater show. We took our time and then found the theater full. So, we headed back to our cabin. Mark wanted to watch the internet highlights from today's French F1 race. Hamilton won once again. Mercedes is doing well this year. We plan to attend the 9:30 show tonight. We have one more full day at sea before we arrive in the Netherlands.
Vessel Name: Charabia
Vessel Make/Model: Fountaine Pajot / Athena
Hailing Port: Jacksonville, FL
Crew: Mark &Helen
We are both computer folks that were live aboard cruisers back in the 90s. We settled in Jacksonville Florida after escaping the great white north and cruising the Bahamas, T&C, DR and points south down to Trinidad. [...]
Extra: Charabia is a French slang word for nonsense or gibberish. It derives from Arabic "sharab" which means alcohol.When you drink (too much) alcohol, you start talking Charabia. The original owners named her and Mark liked the name so it stuck.
