Sun and Seuss At Sea

An oddly Alaskan-style morning greeted Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Miracle when I awoke, on this first day of our weeklong voyage to the Mexican Riviera. Peering out the curtains of my stateroom, I was surprised to see overcast skies and grey seas instead of the crisp blues I had been used to on previous voyages.
Some of the unsettled weather is apparently coming as the remnants of the distant Tropical Storm Andes, which is spooling harmlessly out in the Pacific. While we’re in absolutely no danger of even coming close to encountering it (it’s 800 miles away) we’re seeing some very light swells and unsettled weather as a result. Personally, I think we’re in a flat calm: standing on the upper deck of the Carnival Miracle, it’s only when I concentrate on the horizon that I realize we are, in actuality, pitching gently forward and aft.
