A traditional Regent Pacific Crossing event is the Country Fair, where the various ship’s departments host sideshow / fair games, they really get into this, making it more fun. The idea is that the passengers participate in as many games as they can, collecting tickets for the lucky draw at the end of the fair where, if one of your tickets is drawn, you win a prize, Regent Merchandise.
The Country Fair was meant to be held on the pool deck, but because of the weather, it was transferred inside to deck 6.
One of the more popular games was trying to hit Willie Aames through a life buoy with a sponge. I am guessing that if we had been on the pool deck the sponge would have been wet, increasing the “fun” further. The dry sponges made it more difficult as they were too light to be able to throw accurately.
The galley department’s game was “Pick the Spice”.
Shoot that Ball was the restaurant department’s game, I won a few tickets with this one, it was pretty easy.
One of the more popular games was the Maria Went To Town, this was the housekeeping department’s game. Not really sure what the rules were, seemed that you had to were a hood made from a napkin and then take “buy” groceries, not really sure what else you had to do.
