Just wanted to let you know we had the most fantastic day yet on the Maasdam. We were in Sydney today, and had sunny skies, high in the 60's. My aunt and I rented a car from Hertz (they came right to the pier to pick us up), and drove to Baddeck. It was a nice scenic ride and a cute little town to explore.
Right now, we just finished dinner in the Pinnacle Grille (excellent), and I am watching the sunset with Cape Breton island visible on the horizon. Its just beautiful. Walking over here through the Explorer's Lounge, there were a lucky group of us that saw 5 hump back whales ride along side of the ship.
I read everyones comments and questions from my last post, and will respond to all, if not onboard, then when I return.
Sail7Seas, today (Tues in Sydney) we did have baked salmon - however it was available at the Lido buffet, and not specially cooked on deck so I am not sure if that is what you are referring to.
Shy says hi to everyone - he is truly very special.
More later, bye for now.
To all who are doing this cruise this season, you are in for a real treat
