We're on the Pride now. It has been a very good cruise in general, but we have seen no sun since our magnificent departure through Tower Bridge in London.
Right now we are going through very heavy seas on our way to Bergen. Last night there was a considerable amount of water damage on board. The forward suites had broken windows and flooding. We are in a french balcony suite on deck 6 and had water cascading down the inside of our sealed french doors from the deck above. That water damaged the wiring that controls the automatic locking of the french doors by the captain.
Earlier this morning the captain announced that there substantial damage but did not mention whether or not anyone has been hurt. Since a great many of the passengers are in their 70s and 80s, I sincerely hope that everyone is OK.
