Cruise Day 20 - At sea

It was lovely sailing down the coast of Queensland. At first it was sunny and then there were a few showers. I went to the Culinary Show, where the Chef Nilo Palma cooked a few dishes onstage. The smell of garlic was fantastic and the amount of cream in the blackforest cake was unreal.

Most of what I had planned to do for the day was put off because of the wonderful scenery down the Qld coast. I saw Walsh's Pyramid, but Bartle Frere was veiled in a heavy cloak of cloud. Hinchinbrook and Palm Islands were looking lovely, but we seemed to veer out further to sea when passing Townsville, so could only barely see Magnetic Island. This allowed me to go to the lecture about the Barrier Reef Navigation by the Pilot, Captain Conlin Warwick. 

Darryl competed in Table Tennis, Shuffleboard, Mini Olympics, Carpet Bowls, Bean Bag Toss, and Ryder Cup Challenge. 

In the evening it was a formal dinner, and we enjoyed the meal, then went to the Captain's Cocktail Party, followed by the show with Jane Cho, Elecktra, which I thoroughly enjoyed, with music from Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Beatles, and Kate Bush. We also went to listen to The Walker Black Duo in the Wheelhouse Bar, Music up in the Skywalker's Nightclub, and the tribute to the 50th Anniversary of Princess with Gold Balloon Drop Party with Evolution Party Band.
