Another warm day at sea…

Deck 14 Aft Poolside

The Golden Princess has a huge “spoiler” type structure which arches over the pool on Deck 14.  I thought this was a structural feature, to give the ship that starship look.  Turns out that this archway hold the “Skywalker Lounge” (appropriate name), which is the late night Disco venue.

Had to get moving this morning because my next presentation,
“Genetic Eyewitness” is at 10:30 AM (following a time change last night).  The turnout is a bit down due to the time but the theater still had between 450 to 500 attendees.

Morning Crowd in the Princess Theater

The talk went well and I had quite a few people wanting to talk to me afterwards – we could actually chat in the theater since there was nothing following me in the theater this morning.

Post Talk Chat Time

After a relaxing day at sea, I took some shots of the sunset before we headed off to dinner.  Most of the dinners were in the Horizon Court because of the limited number of non-meat choices in the Bernini Dining Room.

Showtime tonight featured an encore performance by Sonia Selbie.  I even got in the act because just after the photo below, she came over and ran her fingers through my hair.  My 10 seconds of fame.

Taking Her Bows

It was a terrific show and she was in excellent voice.

Tomorrow, we are in Puntarenas, Costa Rica.  It will be good to get on dry land after three days at sea.
