April 29th, 2016 - Day 27 - Cruising the Timor Sea

We had to set our clocks ahead one hour last night so we woke up and it was still dark out.

The Timor Sea we are traveling on was so  smooth and had such a deep blue color.

We had breakfast in the Grand Dining Room. Jim had the express breakfast which was eggs, bacon, English muffin and orange juice.  Pat had a half grapefruit and bowl of berries with a sugar donut she shared with Jim.

At 10:30 AM we had a mandatory Face to Face Immigration Inspection with the Australian Border Force Officers in the Insignia Lounge.

We had lunch in the Terrace Café with a quick slice of margarita pizza.

At 1:30 PM we had Connoisseur Wine Tasting with our Insignias Sommeliers.  We sampled the following wines:

1.  Lois Jadot Meursaukt, Cote De Beaune, Burgundy, France 2012 $105

2.  Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte Grand Cru Classe, Pessac Leognan, Bordeaux, France 2011 $186

3.  Castello Banfi Summus Tuscany, Italy 2010 $141

4.  Sena Acongagagua Valley, Chile 2012 $149

5.  Moët & Chandon Cuvée Dom Perignon Eppernay, France 2004 $240

We met a nice couple at the Wine Tasting from the Pacific Palisades, Mary and Bud.  She was a divorce attorney and he was a Beverly Hills Dentist.

We read in the afternoon and relaxed.

We had dinner in the Terrace Café. Jim had sweet-and-sour seafood, mashed potatoes and gravy and rice.  For dessert he had some weird kind of ice cream with chocolate on top of it. These were his words.

Pat was not very hungry so she had a little sweet-and-sour seafood, a stuffed tomato with orzo and a little bit of rice salad.

We arrive in Darwin, Australia in the morning so we set our clocks ahead 30 minutes tonight.  Crazy time!  We never knew they were ahead just by 30 minutes.  We may have to look that up when we get home to see why. 

Good Night as we cruise along the Timor Sea!
