On the all-day cruising day, I saw an array of events on the bulletin, Princess Patter. A variety of events were scheduled at every corner of the ship. Some passengers spent a relaxing time in galleries or the library, others enjoyed jogging or doing exercises in the gym. As for me, I joined the wine tasting, the British-style afternoon tea party, and the kitchen tour. Then I attended the briefing for disembarkation, which was required by the crew.
The wine tasting was not fun at all. A specialist's one-sided commentary was difficult to understand, containing words new to me. Additionally, the tastes of the wines weren't special to me, but it might be due to my poor tongue.
With regard to the British afternoon tea party, I had assumed that I had to learn something ritual like Japan's tea ceremony, but I was wrong. It was really easygoing. I heard that the Brits would find it unusual and odd that Japanese people would learn how to drink teas even paying tuition fees. Comparing the Japanese tea ceremony with the British one, their thoughts are really acceptable to me. Anyway, I enjoyed a British tea and some sweets. One thing that I was sorry for was that we were gathered into a Japanese group. I wanted to chat with passengers from other countries.
