Friday, December 11 – At Sea – Near Key West, FL – Cloudy - 70s

Early wakeup…just missed a great sunrise (according to a fellow passenger)

Sea Day Dec 11

At Sea – Near Florida

Today is my last Lecture “Forensic Science: Novel DNA Testing”.  Even though many of the attendees wanted another lecture on the last sea day, the activities calendar was already booked.  The attendance was very good (400+)

Final Lecture

When I finished, the crowd applauded and I got a very unexpected but nice “Standing O”.  Great audience.

We spent the rest of the day on Deck 4 just watching the waves go by and reading and listening to tunes.  We wanted to take advantage of the Solarium’s Spa one more time.  There was a message waiting for me on the phone.  It was Allison indicating that they had scheduled an additional lecture tomorrow at 10:00 PM in the La Scala Theater.  And I had just ridden into the sunset…

I tried unsuccessfully to contact Allison to give her a title for this talk. I was hoping she would get the title from the list she received prior to the cruise.

After dinner, we got hold of a Daily Compass – the talk wasn’t highlighted as usual (title and description) but it was in the daily time listings.  I told several people about the new talk throughout the evening and a few passengers told me that there was a new talk tomorrow.

Entertainment for the evening was a Four Seasons tribute group - “The Unexpected Boys” (I am not sure about that name).  They did a great job – sang well and did the dance moves perfectly (a lot of energy). 

Seas continue to be smooth.
