This day was our first day at sea. I started the day in the gym together with everyone else at the ship. It felt like that anyway!
The weather was nice, the sun was shining and the sea was calm. We had a nice long breakfast and just went around the ship, looked at shops and relaxed a lot.
In the afternoon something happen to the weather, it got so windy that they had to close off all the outdoor areas. It got worse and lots of people looked as if they would rather be home in their bed then at sea. One of the waitresses at Zebra Bar tried so hard to hide that she didn’t feel well. I felt so sorry for her.
I found a window seat were I sat with my book most of the day and looked out at sea. It was so beautiful. Especially when the wind picked up.
As you can see from the book I’m reading I’m very obsessed with sailing.
I don’t suffer from seasickness at all, I’m used to do day sailings and have been out in some bad weather, so I have to confess that I really enjoyed the rough sea. The waves makes the sea look even more beautiful and feeling how the ship moved through the storm and the rain was amazing. Yes, I know I’m strange! So when everyone else were talking about how awful this was, I found peace in looking out the windows. We found out after worth that this had been quite a big storm but I’m sure The Poesia had seen worse.
At night it was the first Galla evening. We all had fun dressing up for this. The show this evening was a casino inspired show, which was pretty good. We had a few games in the casino before we went to dinner. I decided to have risotto with spinach which was a good choice. This is were you can feel that you are on an Italian ship. The pasta, pizza and risotto was out of this world!
I’m sorry I haven’t got that many pictures to show you but sea days are not that interesting when it comes to pictures. But here is the view of the day. As you can see… Very windy. This was before they closed off the outdoor areas.
Stay tuned for tomorrow were we are entering the Norwegian fjords…. This is were the pictures get interesting!!!
