Today was our sixth day crossing the Atlantic Ocean on board the Costa Favolosa.

Atlantic crossing day 6.

I woke around 7 am today & after having a shower I made my way to the pool at the back of the ship. I got myself a coffee & sat there reading my Kindle until around 10:30 am when I walked to the Palatino Gran bar for the 11 am quiz. I was joined by Gail & Mal, we did very well & won an ice cream between us in the first quiz & were runners up after a tie break in the second quiz.

For lunch today I had carrot soup, a Plaice fish fillet in an almond butter sauce for my main course & for dessert I had Almond Frangipane. After lunch, I took myself off to a coffee bar to read my Kindle. I had a little too much sun yesterday & my back was a bit sore so I wanted to stay out of the full sun for a day before arriving in Brazil tomorrow.

At 4 pm I walked to the Palatino Grand bar to see if Gail was taking part in the dance lesson. I was surprised to see that Darrel had also joined in with the dance lesson. I ordered a cocktail from the waitress & settled down to read my Kindle. I was soon joined by Dwight & Tessa & when the dance class had finished Darrel & Gail joined us. We didn't win the quiz but came about halfway up the league which I thought was quite good as we didn't start playing together until the third day of the quiz. We all laughed a lot, Gail & I drank a few cocktails before we all went back to our cabins.

At 7 pm I went for dinner in the restaurant where I was joined by Mal, Ann, Rosa, Darrel, Dwight & Tessa. For my starter, I had a crab cake followed by chicken soup. For my main course, I had Veal stew in beer with potatoes & steamed vegetables & for dessert, I had an apple & pear pie with ice cream.

After dinner tonight the theatre had the final of ´The Voice´ singing competition. Having seen the quality of the singers previously & how badly run it was I didn't bother to go. I had a few drinks in the piano bar after dinner before moving to the quiet bar opposite to have a few more. I went to bed quite early tonight at around midnight as I wanted to be ready for my excursion in Recife tomorrow.
