After three hectic days in Egypt and Israel, a day cruising the Mediterranean was a welcome respite. Unfortunately about a third of our group seems to be experiencing the 24 hour gastroenteritis bug which seems to be going around the ship. If reported to the clinic on board everyone with these symptoms is quarantined in their staterooms for 24 hours, so most choose not to report their symptoms.
The weather is cooling down some and a chilly wind arose in the afternoon because we are now heading in a northerly direction.
Those who were stuck in their staterooms could watch BBC news, Bloomberg News, CNN, old repeats of the Love Boat—featuring the 1970s version of the Pacific Princess.
They do run movies like An Affair to Remember, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and more recent movies.
Everyone is recharging and looking forward to a day in Ephesus tomorrow.
