Sunday, January 1, 2012 – At Sea – Atlantic Ocean – Sunny, Warm – 75F

Our last warm day at sea…

 2012-01-01 At Sea (Small)

I don’t have to lecture today – so the plan is to attend one of the lectures and spend the rest of the day on the warm decks.

I attended Steve Rivellino’s lecture in the morning on “Radio City Music Hall”.  He had some great vintage footage of the Rockettes.

The entire afternoon is spent on Deck 7 – I am on the sunny side since it is a bit cool out there.  This gives me the time to finish “Bossypants” by Tina Fey.  The picture below is my view of the Atlantic Ocean from my deck chair.

On the way to dinner, I took the two pictures below through the window on Deck 2 (near the game hallway).  Why?  Because it looks like a UFO made an appearance in both of them – up close and then departing.  Next stop – National Enquirer.

Another formal night tonight…the final one of the voyage.

We had great dinners tonight – grilled salmon with a side dish of stir fried vegetables.  The best food yet.

The Royal Court Theater hosts another Production Show tonight - “Impassionata”, which the poster says has been running on ship for 6 years.  It highlights the Royal Cunard Dancers, who are the best we have ever seen.  The show is very good but, in my opinion, each dance segment is too long.  And I wish they would have included an Irish Step Dance.  One of the four singers wasn’t in the show tonight – I wonder what happened to him.
