Another pretty nice day at sea…not warm enough to be out on the deck but some sunshine…
My fourth talk, “Mystery of the Romanovs” is scheduled for 11:00 AM. I really like the way that Peter puts in a complete description of the presentation. Very nice and very supportive.
Another “sellout crowd” – a good number of people are now here early. This gives me a chance to meet the passengers and chat.
Jason, the DCD was there for the whole talk, so I hope he was able to fill Peter in on how the series was going. The only glitch in the whole presentation was that I incorrectly stated that Queen Mary of Teck was the mother of the recent Queen Mum – it turns out, while Mary was the Grandmother of Elisabeth II (Paternal through George VI), the Queen Mum – born of nobility – married George VI. The Brits and other UK folks in the crowd were quick to correct me (evidence that everyone was listening). It is now corrected in the talk and in my memory banks.
We went up to the Panorama Buffet for lunch, which was slammed due to the fact that about 300 plus passengers went directly from my lecture to the Cafe. We did find a seat but the place was really crowded.
We spent the rest of the day in the Tahitian Lounge, which has turned out to be the place to be (generally quiet with a great view).
After dinner, we went to hear part of a performance by Greg Scott – 6’7’’ tallest violinist in the world. We had seen him several times before so we only stayed for the beginning of his concert.
After the show, we listened to Tommy McPhee in the Casino Lounge – Tommy has been doing some show tunes and some Barry Manilow and that’s enough to keep us coming back. He’s got a good voice and puts on a good performance.
Tomorrow, we are back on land in Norway.
