We Cruised With Virgin Voyages Part 9

CHARLOTTE – Everyone had an excellent seat with a good line of sight. The show was anacrobatic spectacular, with gymnasts and dancers intertwining and constantlymoving. The show was at floor level, between two sets of seating, Red, and Pink, corresponding to teams of acrobats so you could cheer on your team. The show was a 55-minute extravaganza that exceeded my expectations and was like nothing I have ever attended on a ship. Well, here we go again, innovative # 8 and counting. After a well-deserved glass of wine on deck 7, we retired to our stateroom. I was delighted by an I pad device on my desk. It allowed me to change the room lighting at will, from hues of blue to red, dark, or light. It also allowed me to control the TV from my bed, choosing live channels or about 50 movies. Innovative Award # 9, and I am done with all these awards. Shall I try something else? Not tonight – good night all.

Day 2 was a sea day and it seemed it would be a boring, restful day on a calm sea. All was going as planned UNTIL!!! Around 10 am, the ship’s sailors spotted a dingy adrift with several people in it. Circling the boat, the Captain ascertained there were 8 souls on board with no water or food. The engine had quit and they were shouting for help. The Captain made one of his very few, but well-respected announcements, saying we would pick up the people and detour offshore near Key West to rendezvous with the Coast Guard.
