Transatlantic Day 2

Morning view from the balcony
Wednesday morning started with partly cloudy weather,
2-3m high waves.
Ran 40mins in the gym. Quite a challenge to stay on the running machine
– without any incline it was like running up and down.
Occasionally it was very light to run in the speed of 9km/h – felt like flying.
On the other hand occasionally it felt nothing like that!

Wednesday’s dress:
Black-white-lilac-pale pink cashmere dress by Diane von Furstenberg
Black ballerinas by Prada
Crystal earrings by Swarovski
Breakfast at Britannia Club
Both couples had already arrived and waited for their portions.
Had fresh fruit salad,
toasted bagel with cold-smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers and lemon
– loved that!
Got already the NY-feeling!

Rating: 5-/5
- breakfast couldn’t get any better!
Much better than a buffet one where you always eat too much.
Britannia Club
Time to continue reading the book that started yesterday.

Dinner at Todd English
A glass of Veuve Cliquet Rose Reserve
Fried calamari with artichokes, preserved lemon, caper aioli

Panache of seasonal sorbet: banana, raspberry & mango

Had a drink at Veuve Clicquet Champagne bar before the night’s show.
Champagne Bar, Ceck 3
At 10.30pm “Singers in Concert”
Featuring the Royal Cunard Singers
and the combined talents of the Queen Mary 2 musicians
for a concert style show.
- the singers – 2 women, 2 men – were very good
- didn’t like the music, found it boring,
some kind of 60s & 70s contemporary songs,
recognized only couple of the songs
Clocks were set back again by 1 hour!
