Blackout! Peace and Quiet!

Last Monday we had a blackout, one of the main generators cut out and some of the ship was plunged into darkness. We lost power in our cabin but didn't realise except that the telephone made a stange noise and everything seemed strangely nice and quiet, at least until Sam rushed in to find his torch as deck 4 was pitch black in places!! Anyone that missed it on Monday got to experience it yesterday as they turned it off again to try and work out what had caused it in the first place. It is strange how much noise you get used to - engines, people, ice machines outside your door, noisy vents, a/c, vacuum sinks and toilets but it was very, very nice to have a minute where all seemed quiet.
