Pursuing Trivia On The Atlantic

One of our favorite pastimes on cruises, particularly transatlantic cruises, is Team Trivia.

On this cruise we found six other congenial cruisers from various parts of the U.S. and we’re enjoying some success. Today we might have hit our high point by tying for first place. Among other facts, we correctly answered the second-largest continent (Africa), the book of which the first line concerns somebody’s brother Jem breaking his arm (To Kill a Mockingbird), and the first feature-length Disney cartoon (Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs).

We tied for first even though the cruise director wouldn’t accept “Korea” as the correct answer for the headquarters of Kia (He demanded South Korea, even though it’s the Republic of Korea, if you want to be technical).

We’ve played table tennis and shuffleboard, enjoying a great lunch along the way (one of the best lasagnas we’ve had in a long time).

The weather continues beautiful and the seas are calm. Four more nights before returning to the reality of Miami November 29.
