Mid Atlantic Ridge

Mid Atlantic Ridge

At some time close to Noon today we reached the northern track of our course and have since started to head south.

The weather has improved with the swell dropping from 5m to maybe only 1-2m, the wind also has softened and we even saw the sun for a few brief minutes.

Life on Board

Dora and I have nearly adjusted to the life on board, some of the classes we attend seem fixed in their timings, namely fencing and ball-room lessons. Today we very excitingly did the laundry, but compensated for it with a Movie in the cinema.

This evening is another formal event, so we are attending the Captain's Cocktail Party.

I see no ships, land or anything !

Rather empty decks, with no takers for the sun-beds.

Ireland is about 600 miles astern.

Formal Evening

We were received by the Captain of the Queen Mary 2, he and his officers held a very pleasant reception in the Queens Ball room.

For the evening we were quite dressed up.
