We crossed the equator at exactly 10.00a.m. this morning and watched a “crossing the line” ceremony introduced by the cruise director. King Neptune and his queen accompanied by two “mermaids” and two “pirates” punished passengers who had displeased them. First the passenger had to kiss the fish, then they were covered in “flotsam and jetsum”, before being tossed in the pool. Even the ship’s captain was subjected to it though he was not thrown in the pool. Eventually there was a bit of a free for all among the “cast “ with all of them ending up covered with the flotsam etc and ending up in the pool. All good fun and enjoyed by the passengers.
