The ship was lively during the night but we appear to have avoided the cyclone. Storm clouds blocked the sunrise and we encountered a rain squall just before 06:00. After breakfast we occupied two spaces in the International Café reading our Kindles. The flea market sale was as chaotic as always and even Jenny couldn't find anything to buy there.
Up to Deck 14 for lunch and back to the cabin to write, read and rest a while.
Spent the afternoon in a horizontal position reading relaxing and resting - the 3Rs. Dressed for the formal night and the parade of the 'Baked Alaska' by the assistant waiters and the cooks. The desert was terrific and as there were very few of us at dinner there was plenty of it. Went to the Vista Lounge to watch a performance by James Lamont, billed as a 'Physical Comedian'. Clever tricks, not so funny humour and overall a rather pathetic show.
Found our disembarkation documents on return to the cabin, had to see the front desk to have them changed to an earlier time. With any luck when we achieve 'Elite' status they will get it right first time around.
Jenny, as my resident scribe, completed the "Incoming Passenger Cards", the "Crew Recognition Forms" and the gratuities envelopes for the cabin steward and the dinner waiters. I've checked my on-board account and it would appear that we will 'owe' Princess the princely sum of $0.03. That will be an interesting credit card transaction.
Another sea day tomorrow and then we'll sail into Sydney.
