After breakfast and a few laps of the promenade deck we went to listen to one of the World War II guest speakers whose talk was on D-Day. It was a very emotional experience, I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room!

It was a lovely and sunny day today so we decided to sit out on deck in the sun for a couple of hours before our Godiva Afternoon Tea.

 

The Godiva Afternoon Tea at Sir Samuels was delicious. We had four cakes, all of which were extremely rich and chocolatey; there was also a large chocolate & cherry macaroon which was as big as my hand! No one could get through all the cakes and scones so we asked if we could take them away and save some of them for tomorrow as we were going to a mixology class and it was a good way to soak up all the alcohol.

Later this afternoon after a quick nap, we had the chance to look around the bridge which was fascinating, as this is where all the action happens! We met one of the ships deck cadets who showed us how they control the ship.

This evening we dined in the Britannia Restaurant, where as always, the food was delicious. We then moved to the Queens Room, where there was a Big Band Night, so we had a quick dance in there before moving on to G32 for a couple of drinks before bed…
