Cruise Vacation - Day 6 (Tuesday, 15 May 2012)

The ship traveled from Le Havre to Cherbourg overnight.

We woke up at 8:30 a.m., got dressed and up to breakfast by 9:30 a.m. in the Windjammer. Linda wore her bathing suit and I escorted her to the indoor pool where she enjoyed the water for two hours. I read my book and took a walk around the deck.

We did not take a shore excursion today, being tired of buses.

I went back for Linda at !2:30 p.m. so that we could have lunch, and after lunch she took a nap and I went walking again and read my book. I bought the cruise terminal to Oslo airport tickets for Sunday, and turned in our passports as requested for security reasons. I reviewed the syllabus for the four classes that I missed, and reviewed and edited my Genealogical Proof Standard presentation.

We went out at 6 p.m. for dinner in the Aquarius dining room at Table #32. We stayed until 8:15 p.m. talking to each other and the staff. There was a good discussion of Y, mitochondrial and autosomal DNA tests among other topics. Then it was back to the cabin, and I reviewed and edited my presentation and started to write this daily journal.  We went to bed before 10 p.m.

The ship departed Cherbourg at 5 p.m. and headed for Dublin.
