Nobody called us, so even second COVID swab was ok. Time for a quick lunch, a nap and more ship exploration.
My experience with the Formula 1 simulator has to be mentioned: I had difficulty to find the right position in the car, then the lady supervising the simulator approached me and explained that the right position was not to be seated, as I was trying to be, but I had to lay down almost completely. The lady told me that all buttons and switches were working, then assessed my driving ability and told me just to use the pedals to accelerate and slow down. I started to drive, but completely missed the first turn left, going out of the road. I spent most of the time trying to re-enter the track. The lady gifted me a second attempt; this time I was more careful and remained in the lane … after a while that I was driving the Formula 1 car at a speed of 70 miles/ hour (quite a lot for my standard way of driving) the lady took remotely the control of the car and the speed increased up to 300 miles/ hour … even it it was just a simulator I was terrorized…I tried to use the brake but nothing happened … slow down … brake … BRAKE … B R A K E ! Then the car reached the FINISH sign… the lady offered me a new run … no thanks…for this year I drove enough..!
We had a speciality ( = extra fee) dinner at the Japanese restaurant Teppanyaki. We could choose among various fixed price menu. I selected the vegetarian menu, while Laura had the Geisha proposal. Both menu started with a miso soup, with tofu and vegetables; then we had sushi, sashimi, tempura and a salad. This was just the appetizer; now the main part of the dinner / show was starting, with the Japanese chef playing with its tool and food in front of us, while cooking rice, eggs, vegetables, then fish and chicken for Laura and tofu for me. Very fun and tasty. Caramelized pineapple and ice cream was our dessert; it was a very enjoyable experience!
