At Sea

March 28, 29 and 30

Between Sao Tome and our next port of Walvis Bay, Namibia, we had 3 days at sea in the Gulf of Guinea. After our day in Sao Tome, we crossed the equator, and for the first time since COVID, Oceania has allowed the “crossing of the equator”ceremony to take place.

The judge, King and Queen Neptune as well as the “mermaids” and other members of the entertainment team played their parts well. Some of the band members led the procession around the track on the upper deck and the festivities occurred on deck 9 near the pool. Abby and Ilya of the entertainment team had never crossed the equator before and were subjected to the full treatment, lots of food spread all over them before being doused with water, and of course they had to beg to be shellbacks and kiss the fish. Here are some photos.

We had a beautiful sunset the following night. And we had dinner with friends, Brooke and Kim from Toronto.

Charlie brought me some chocolate!

On the 29, we had another around the world dinner, this time in Polo. Here is the menu. Very inventive and delicious. The dessert was amazing, both chocolate mousse and creme brulee in the pineapple bowl.

And here is the photo of our table, one of Paul and just us.

Next, on the 31, we arrrive in Walvis Bay, Namibia. It will be our second time there and we are looking forward to it.
