It was another lazy day, which I spent reading the entirety of Murder In Belgravia, by Lynn Brittney. It’s the first in a fairly new series (2018) set in WWI era England, and is reminiscent in style of Anne Perry’s William Monk detective series (not to be confused with Tony Shaloub’s television character Adrian Monk), which was one of my favourites.
Today’s theme in the World Café at noon was A Taste of Great Britain, which naturally meant eating England’s national dish: chicken tikka masala! (well, me anyway – Ted opted for sausage rolls)
As the sun set into the Pacific Ocean, we changed for dinner. There are no formal nights on Viking ships, but all the restaurants except the World Café require “business casual”, which precludes jeans, shorts and exercise gear.
I really like the slower pacing of a full-serve restaurant, so we generally do get a tiny bit fancier than whatever we wore during the day. The World Café theme tonight was Brazilian Churrascaria, which was incredibly tempting, but nonetheless we ate in the main restaurant and had yet another amazing meal.
After dinner, we took in the evening performance: Legends, a tribute to some of the biggest Las Vegas vocal acts (Elvis, Tom Jones, The Rat Pack, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, Celine Dionne and more) by the Viking Vocalists.
As if that weren’t enough music, we ended the evening with a nightcap and dancing to the Viking Band in the Torshavn Bar.
