We are going to a meeting today to tell us how to change rooms – from our small one, into a larger one with a balcony at the back of the ship. The bigger rooms on this ship were booked long before Wyona had an interest in coming back to NE Asia. The room has a double bed, and a two-seater couch which folds out at night or for afternoon naps. There is no room for two people to pass at the bottom of the bed, so one person has to move one-way while two stand on the other side of the room, and then the action starts the other way.
Alternatively someone can walk across the tops of the bed to go from the inside door by the corridor straight through to the baloney. I saw David do this many times on the last cruise. Greg took this route once and proved he was good at it. Wyona and I would require a step ladder to get up on the mattress. A step ladder would be a room accessory that we do not need, for there would be no space in which to store it.
Yesterday Wyona threw out the red roses that came to us compliments of the Captain’s Club. I thought the flowers had another good week in them so I resuced them from the garbage. She citied having no room for them as the reason they had to hit the garbage. By the morning I agreed with her, since together we were up a few times in the night, waiting for emails and during that time, while manoeuvring in the dark, we spilt glasses of drinking water into side drawers. While drying those out we threw important jewels into the garbage along with the wet Kleneexes. Cruising as a togetherness project is helping Wyona and me develop new life skills.
