December 27th ~ At sea
A full day at sea which was briefly broken up as we cruised around Cape Horn, at the tip of South America, which marks where the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans come together.
This is another “Cross it off the Bucket List” for many on our cruise, and the daily Princess Patter newspaper compared it to the “Mount Everest of Sailing”. I must admit it was rather a non-event for me. I did have a little twinge of regret however at being so close to Antarctica and not going there.
The rest of the day was pretty mundane comprised with a nap, reading, Tim playing a little Blackjack and me writing up some notes about our previous days activities.
Things perked up for our evening meal which was pre-reserved at one of the onboard specialty restaurants, Share. The menu had been created by Chef Curtis Stone. It consisted of six courses, as if we were not already getting enough to eat, LOL.

We had arranged to join new friends Roper and Susan, who we met while waiting in a long line to board our tender back on day 3 in Puerto Montt.
Dinner was delicious and the company wonderful. We found out that we have much in common, and I sincerely hope that we will have an opportunity to enjoy another meal with them before the cruise is over.
There is an extra charge of $39 per person to have dinner in Share.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that our itinerary is well-paced with a day in port, followed with a sea day, day in port, day at sea, repeat, repeat. That combination is just what we need to get caught up on sleep, rest, and get rejuvenated.
