According to some people (those on the ship looking green around the gills) we had some pretty rough seas for a couple of nights along the Spanish Coast. Of course, there were those without a sense of humor (exactly why would they think either the Catholic Priest on board or the Ship’s Captain would have any control over the weather).
I didn’t think it was all that bad, but then it has been mentioned more than once (and by more than one person) that I missed my calling by joining the Army and should have been in the Navy. Might I here by remind all of you that I was through medical school prior to women being allowed in the service academies and the addition of women to actually shipboard positions is relatively new. Don’t think I would have liked large Naval Medical Centers any more than I appreciate the same thing on the Army side. But anyway, back to the rough seas. No matter how bad -there is still running water and flush toilets.
What I did notice is that there were people stumbling all over the place the higher we went on the ship. It is a case of cheap seats (aka cabins) are a better, smoother ride especially mid ships than are the higher balconies and other elevations. By the time you get to the fitness center on deck 10, all I can say is that the elliptical is more stable than a treadmill (feet always in contact with something).
