30 April – May 1, 2019 – In the Atlantic Ocean

Two more days slip away at sea on the Queen Mary 2. We are still amazed at how much bigger this ship seems compared to the Queen Victoria.

The lecturers are good and popular; you have to get to the theatre early for a seat.

The Planetarium tickets also are on a first come first serve basis. The line is quite long first thing in the morning and I’m one of those standing in the line. Tickets achieved we attend the 2:30 pm show. It’s about the Wildest Weather in the Solar System by National Geographic. Interesting movie.

Our 31st Anniversary is April 30th. We are quite happy to celebrate at The Verandah for dinner. Same menu as the Queen Victoria and just as delicious. And Steve is just as handsome 31 years later ❤️

Walking around the ship, the artwork and sculptures are fantastic.

At the front of the ship are some extra propeller blades that even look like artwork.

The Captain tells us we will be experiencing some rougher seas tonight. Today, it is beautiful. Nothing like being on the Atlantic Ocean crossing from the United Kingdom to the United States by sea! Easy adjusting to the time and nice to have a few relaxing days as we complete our world cruise.

From “Moby Dick” —

Round the world! There is much in that sound to inspire proud feelings; but whereto does all that circumnavigation conduct? Only through numberless perils to the very point whence we started, where those that we left behind secure, were all the time before us.
