Thursday, June 14, 2012 – At Sea (Norwegian Sea) – Mostly Sunny – 60sF estimating

A pretty day at sea – to cool for the deck but nice views.

My first morning at the Breakfast Buffet – usually my quiet time.  Not this morning – the place is packed – don’t these people sleep.  Breakfast was waffles, cottage cheese, and fruit topping (this will be the breakfast for nearly the entire cruise).  The chatter was too much so breakfast was very short.

A relaxing morning.  I attended the first talk given by the Destination Speaker – Niki Sepsas.  He had a good crowd and did a nice job. 

Lunch was in the Aqua Spa Cafe – fresh grilled Tuna on a bun.  It was really good.

My first talk – “The CSI Phenomenon” – is scheduled for the Celebrity Theater for 3 PM.  The crowd dribbled in slowly but, at the start, there were about 120 attendees.  Steve, the Cruise Director, was on hand to introduce me.

The attendees were big CSI Fans (80 plus percent). I was very pleased with the attendance and the venue.

We arrived at our new table for dinner – as it turned out, our new waiter (from Romania) is terrific – friendly but not hovering.  We had Cobia (“Black Salmon”) tonight.  I had just been reading about Cobia being one of the foods of the future. 

Dinner took a little longer than it should have and we didn’t get to the 7:00 PM show on time.  This put us in the balcony.  The Show, “iHollywood”, was all about the Music of the Movies.  The Singers and Dancers did a nice job.

Seas are still smooth.
