Wednesday, May 11, 2011 – At Sea – Atlantic Ocean – Partly Cloudy - 75F

The time change has done me in…

But another beautiful day at sea…

Sea Day 5-11 (Small)

Got up an hour late so I was behind schedule for my 10 AM talk. 

A quick breakfast and at 9:20 AM, I am setting up for my fifth presentation: “DNA: Genetic Witness”.  Another capacity crowd (standing and sitting on the floor) of more than 250 people.  Again, the talk was advertised in the Cruise Compass.  I understand that we will be changing the venue to the Coral Theater for tomorrow’s presentation.

Lunch in the Windjammer.

I attended Ted’s talk on “China: Discovers the World” at 2:00 PM and then the rest of afternoon is spent in the Solarium.  I have been looking an an interesting work of art out by the pool area for the whole cruise and I feel it needed to be shared.  Below is “Man by the Pool with Ball” (not the real title).

We checked out “Celebration 4” in the Centrum before going to dinner in the Windjammer Cafe.  Following dinner, we got great seats in the far aft section of the Safari Club and listened to the “Celebration 4” again until Showtime.

The headliner tonight was “Tracy Shield: An Evening with Celine Dion”.  Tracey Shield is a British women, who won a contest on Brit TV for best impression of a singer – in this case, Celine Dion.  She not only looks a bit like Celine Dion, but has her voice and movements down perfectly.  Her voice is indistinguishable from the original – the whole picture is pretty eerie.

At one point, she went up the aisles during one of her songs.  Even though she was less than five feet away, she was moving so fast, that she’s just a blur.  She did tell me to “shoot my best side”

Near the end of her show, she came out of character to tell us about her British background and how she came to be a Celine Dion tribute artist.  She then went back into character to finish off with “The Heart Will Go On”.

The audience loved her and so did we.  Just great…

There is another time change tomorrow so we head back to the room.  The Compass does indicate that I am speaking in the Coral Theater tomorrow but that the talk is at 9:00AM.

We order room service for 6:30 AM and set a wake up call for 6:30 AM.  I need to get there early to see if there are any AV issues.

Seas are call but I did have “decaf” coffee for dinner.
