Postcard from the Ship

Monday 10 September 2018

Hi from somewhere in the Mediterranean!

Today’s a sea day as we make the 500 mile run from Ibiza to La Lavandou in the south of France.

There’s nothing lazier than a sea day. Breakfast in the café – a triple mocha and an almond croissant for me, a cappuccino and fruit for Lisa. Then upstairs to our cabana on deck 12 to listen to books, play cards and do crosswords until lunch. It was rainy in the morning so we had the hot tub all to ourselves. By afternoon the sun was out and we enjoyed sunset on the deck while playing cribbage.

The crew on the Encore is universally jolly: our cabin stewardess, Sarah from Ireland, the sommelier, Nataly from Ukraine, our waiter, Miguel from Portugal, hotel manager Lynn from Belgium, and Jennifer our Maitre d’ from the UK. They’re all so friendly and helpful. We want to take them home with us.

Today’s picture is from our aerie looking down on the pool deck. It truly is a sight.

Love to you all!
