This is still the smoothest crossing I have ever experienced. Hope it holds. Such long days also, sun is up around 5AM - although we don't see too much of it.....lst Cunard wedding at sea held in Chart Room at llam. Happy couple blew the noon whistle and had their first dance in the ballroom with the combined orchestras last night while the singer sang "Tenderly" ... band really rocked the ship last night-(big band night)..........By chance I was near former President George Bush and Barbara at the church service...In the Kings Court the Chef's gallery now does healthful foods for breakfast- freshly made juices and smoothies. At lunch, they now serve pizza and pasta........I don't come on the QM2 to have pizza, but from what I can see, it seems to be pretty popular.........At lunch, La Piazza and Carvery now serve basically the same lunch menu( like breakfast) with some slight variations.... this change seems like a cutback but it does seem to be working out fine and there is still an excellent selection of food.... I can see no decline in food quality in the Kings Court or the Britannia Restaurant.......I happened to look in on the late night snack around lam to find the best presentation and variety of food that I have ever seen since I have been sailing with the QM2......was a pleasant surprise.................Although I had seen if before, went to see "Warhorse" in Illuminations.......lovely setting to watch a film....Still meeting the most wonderful and interesting people onboard...took a dinner tablemate on a tour of the ship yesterday -he had saved a long time to do the round trip crossing and was not getting the whole experience..... so much fun playing tour guide....on the whole, the guest speakers are very good.....so far, still just having a grand time.
