Today was our optional tour to Luxembourg. Weather began in the 30s and remained cold and cloudy. Very happy to have long johns, headband and gloves. The city was a typical old ,but obviously very wealthy. We toured cathedrals and the marketplace. After lunch, we travelled by bus to the American cemetery that had the graves of victims of the Battle of the Bulge. The guide at the cemetery was a walking encyclopedia of the battle and also of many of the men who were buried there. The experience was quite moving and made us more aware that our current political situation was even more potentially disastrous.
After dinner, we had a program with some of the crew and learned about their lives including their lives aboard ship.
