A dreary day at sea…
The ship is hugging the coast of Spain.
A little later in the day, the skies cleared a bit
Esperanza has scheduled a joint “Meet and Greet the Beyond the Podium Speakers” for 9:45 AM in Cellar Masters on Deck 4. Considering the hour, very few people show up but it is still a nice way to chat with the passengers.
Cellar Masters is pretty high tech – you swipe your Sea Pass card and a machine will dispense a glass of your favorite wine. No sommelier needed.

We spent some of the morning in the Hideaway Lounge, where Ellen found the cage.

Look closely and you can see me across the Foyer in the picture below (just below the left side of the tree).
My final talk is scheduled for 3:15 PM. “Identifying the Famous and Infamous” draws another capacity crowd. A nice final found of applause capped off a successful lecture stint. The final talk was captured from several angles.
Even though it is the last night of the cruise – when people are packing and the show is not the highlight of the evening – the Reflection pulled a switch and put on a brand new show - “Centre Stage”. The show was not entirely new since the various Broadway tunes had been part of previous, similar shows. Still the singing and dancing were terrific The song selection was excellent – no duds tonight. The show opened with the blond lead singer (she is great) singing “Let Me Be Your Star” from Smash.
Opening number from Centre Stage
Love Never Dies (Phantom 2)
Jersey Boys and Girls
Finale – Footloose
After the show, we went to the Ensemble Lounge to read and play Solitaire (below).
We don’t have to pack.
We are not just hopping off and back on tomorrow, We plan to spend the day in Barcelona.
