Another cloudy start…
A daily dose of jet lag…had a little trouble sleeping and then getting up due to the time change but I’m in the Windjammer at 7:15 AM. Not as many early risers as usual.
The talk today, “Cold Cases Solved”, was advertised in the Cruise Compass passed out last night – I wonder if that will bring additional people to the talk. When I arrived at 9:30, the main seating area was already packed. Wayne (AV) also took the projector from its perch in the ceiling and placed in on a table on the main floor. This completely improved the quality and alignment of the image. Crisp and clean.
At 10:00 PM, the place was packed – people were on the floor (below) and standing. It was difficult to get a count but it was well over 200 people. I promised I would check with the Activities Department about changing the venue.
The talk went well and finished on time even though I included the OJ Moment in the presentation. After the talk, while they set up for Bingo, I get a chance to talk to folks attending the talk (below).
The afternoon was spent in the Solarium, which was packed due to the windy cool conditions on the open deck. I am still re-reading “Portrait of a Killer”.
Before dinner, we listened to the “Celebration 4” (easy listening band from Hungary) in the Centrum. The Centrum is a pretty impressive structure (below), resembling a hotel.
On our way to dinner in the Windjammer Cafe, I got a great shop of a beautiful sunset.
The headliner for tonight’s show is Mike Riley, a comedian-singer-guitarist from Milwaukee, WI. He was a very funny guy and put on a great show.
After the show, we listed to a few songs from Lyn MacKay and then onto the Centrum to hear two of the Celebrity Singers, Amanda and James, put on a concert.
They were really good but since we are turning our clocks ahead again tonight, we called it a night.
The seas are smooth…
