Cruising with Costa – Crossing the Equator

Friday, March 22, 2019

After breakfast this morning we went to the pool deck as today was the day we crossed the equator.  I did a dance session with the animation team and then four groups had their faces painted in the colours of the four elements – Earth, Water, Fire and Sky.

We had to gather on the balcony under our flags and when Neptune appeared he did a whole thing and called for us to yell when he called our elements.   Then he welcomed us and said we may cross his territory.

We all lined up and were baptized by the God of The Sea!   It was great fun.
