November 26, 2018 – Sea Day

The seas throughout the night and day were very rough and the ship tossed and turned quite a bit. The morning included the Morning Show with Cruise Director Jorge interviewing Jesse Kazemek the guest performer and his wife who performed a couple of nights earlier.

Ian lectured on the things to see and do in Sydney followed by a cooking class in America’s Test Kitchen with Spencer who showed us how to make dinner salads. He showed us a classic Caesar salad and a Cobb salad each with a homemade dressing.

For lunch we joined one of our new friends, Pat, and several of her friends for lunch in the Pinnacle Grill. Pat was leaving the following day in Sydney and so we celebrated new friends and future travels. Pat and her family have had a time share in La Jolla for many years and we hope to see her in March or April when she comes to La Jolla for her annual visit.

The afternoon included a lecture by Dr. Mark Lax on the origins of Sydney as a penal colony up through the modern day, including a few suggestions of things to see and do in Sydney.

The evening’s entertainment was a split show with Mentalist Brian Ledbetter and Comedian Darren Sanders.
