We then had a very nice tour of the bridge. While she is not a sophisticated as her big sisters, the Seabourn Pride’s bridge works well and the officers were friendly and took a good bit of time answering questions and showing how systems, like the AIS (Advanced Information System) works even pointing out a Celebrity Cruise Lines ship and her next port.
We were all up early and met Chef Kurt for a short Shopping with the Chef (since the original one was cancelled and the real one was not until near the end of the cruise). As no one had been here before nobody really knew what the market would be like. It was tiny…I mean really tiny. Like about 8 stalls tiny. But there was a fish monger who none of us will ever forget. There was a long haired, balding, laughing, French speaking salty dog who made no bones about having a drink or three at 9:00 a.m. He and Chef Kurt had a “unique” conversation about seafood pairing the quiet and reserved chef with a character.
