Well, the sun has finally shown itself after a couple of grey and gloomy days. Now everything is blue and sparkly again and the white horses are gradually disappearing, much to the disgust of forward starboard watch who had to cope with gloomy skies, strong winds of force 7 - 8 and aggressive waves splashing on deck!
We are out of sight of land, so there is no signal for the phone junkies.
There are two types of people on this ship: those who feel the need to clock in to the real world and those who have come to clock out of it.
Apparently we have just passed Naples but we are not sure which one, as there seems to be some dispute as to where Naples is.
We are definitely suffering from a lack of dolphin sightings on this trip so Brian has been practicing his dolphin impressions, ready for a display at the end of this watch.
But wait and hold the show for another day Brian, as Will is lining up a talk about his "day job" on the antarctic survey vessel RSS Ernest Shackleton.
So we finish the watch leaving Nursey Rachel at the helm.
