heading back to Singapore on the first loop – I made significant progress on La Strada, but I am not at all happy with how it is turning out. I have even gone down .25mm on needle size but I finally decided just to put it away for now and switch to a couple of other projects.
Otherwise, we spent the day at sea.
Perhaps you are wondering why I haven’t commented on the food or entertainment?
The food is poor to average quality and I am not impressed. Our even table companions are wonderful. All of them have cruised multiple times before, usually with Costa but also with several other cruise lines. The general consensus is that Costa has gotten worse over the years and this trip is the last straw. All of us wanted this particular itinerary and times slot.
Every couple comes from a slightly different location – Bonn, Dresden, Nuernberg, Hannover and us. (No Swiss or Austrians in this crowd so I can reasonably follow the conversations provided the background noise doesn’t get too loud).
