Tectonic Plate. The rock wall on the left is part of the edge of one of the tectonic plates in Iceland. This particular plate which is obviously much larger than what is seen here moves about 30 centimeters a year. Most interesting thing I have seen this past three days.

A little commentary: It’s about 6:15 Monday morning. Today we dock in Oslo Norway around noon. First night went well. Definitely a whole different vibe than the river cruises I have been on. There are four different bar/lounge areas on the ship. We went to two of them last night. One is your traditional bar setting. This is the one that had the piano and guitar players. The other one called the panoramic lounge at the top of the ship is a much larger show like bar. Last night was disco night lol. With the lights, DJ and all that. Interesting.

 

Everything is super upscale here (pretentious comment number one for today). Wine, beer, hard stuff, liquors, are all available. Premium stuff no house brands. You want a particular wine they get to for you. If not currently on the ship they will get it at the next port. No extra cost. My wife requested certain wines, and foods for snacking and our butler will stock our mini-fridge this morning. 
 

First formal night is tonight. Should be interesting. Starting at six pm. Tuxedos or dark (black) suit and tie for men, gowns or super fancy dresses for the ladies. No pantsuits for the ladies for example. 
 

Room service is 24/7 for everything. Drinks food whatever. Again any cocktail, wine, beer all available. The food is not your typical room service food. Same quality as if seated in a restaurant. There is quite an extensive room serviced menu.

 

Well it’s off to breakfast soon. This more I’ll opt for the breakfast buffet. They also offer a sit down breakfast in one of the restaurants and another sit down one in the Panorama lounge.

You do have a tux, right?

Nope. New black suit. Not buying a tux that is would most likely never wear again. The suit I can  always wear at home for dead people events.

Monday 5/23 breakfast

 

Was a buffet but the staff served you. A staff person also carried your plate to the table. I could get used to this. (Pretentious statement)

Sounds awesome if that's your thing.  Jimmy's living his best life!

 

 

 

I'd pay thirty grand to have them drop me off at the nearest port!

Apologies if I missed any other dooshes along the way.

Nah, nothing but love.  Cool trip, awesome pics, happy for him, just not my style. Being waited on at that level makes me uncomfortable.  

 

I'm weird on stuff like that.  I know that about myself. 

 

You might even call me pretentious.

Hey jasy get this…….when you go to the buffet here and you pick out what you want and after server puts it on your plate another server carries your plate to your table for you and then pulls out your chair to help you get seated.

 

Pretentious times 10 and I am loving every single minute of it Baby!
