No Fun in Funchal
Thanks to our super chauffeur and his wife (John & Jackie) we arrived safely in a freezing cold Southampton, with plenty of time to catch the ship.
Imagine our delight when we discovered, upon check-in, that we were upgraded to a balcony room. Everything was sailing along swimmingly until we hit the Bay of Biscay when we would have had a smoother ride on 'splash mountain'. Pauline spent the next 36 hours flat on her back, and it was nothing to do with me!
Today (Thur) is our first stop in Madiera where although it's warm, it's also wet. It looks a beautiful place and one that we would like to visit again when it's sunny.
Next stop Barbados, but first another 5 days at sea. Fingers crossed that it will be a bit calmer.
