Today we are at sea. It is lovely and warm and sunny but windy, as a result the Promenade Deck is closed, because passengers could easily be lost overboard. When went for breakfast the water in the pool on Deck 14 was like a rough sea, so much so that waves could wash a bather out of the pool!
By lunch we had reached 14N 74W and were pushing hard into a Force 9 gale and 3 – 4 metre swell. Later we experienced winds of up to 40mph with very big waves and equally big rolls from side to side. These are experienced more on the upper decks and forward, At dinner this evening there were a good number of empty places!!
The spray from the storm had evaporated on exposed surfaces leaving a layer of salt behind.
