Our nights are better now that we are in 8007 (I think it was the A/C units on Deck 7 that were causing the vibration in our previous room). In any event, here's our new digs.
I shook things up at breakfast today – Omelet (tomatoes, onions, and peppers), blueberry pancake, brioche slice, and chocolate donut. I inquired about the strange cottage cheese and was told that was what was delivered but that he would check on it. Not having cottage cheese will change my game plan for breakfast for the remainder of the cruise.
We both attended the 10:00 AM presentation by Producer Rick Senat – “You A’int Heard Nothing Yet”. A very good lecturer (sounded like a Brit) who worked as an attorney for Warner Brothers. He spoke about the transition from silent to talking pictures. Very interesting.
We stayed in the Galaxy Lounge for the Q and A with Lainie Kazan. She had some interesting stories to tell.
Lunch was up in the Trident Grill/Lido Café – Red Pepper Gazpacho, Salad Bar, Salmon Burger (not really a burger) and a pizza. All good as usual.
At 1:30 PM we went to Steve’s talk on “The Broadway Golden Age: 1950-1960”. He had an excellent crowd but had to move really fast to get it all in in 45 minutes.
Jim Brochu did a one man show called “Character Man” at 5:00 PM in the Galaxy Lounge. Jim recounted his interactions with some of the best character actors in Broadway History. He also sang some classics. It was the best thing I’ve seen on a ship so far.
We had dinner with Steve and Brenda in the Crystal Dining Room.
Pre-Dinner with Steve and Brenda
Salmon Medallions and Pasta with Corn and Tomato Sauce (should have been more of an Alfredo as described). The best part of the meal was the black bean soup.
Dinner ran a little late so we only caught the last few minutes of the headliner – Dale Gonyea. He seemed pretty funny so we are going to catch his next show in its entirety. I've also seen him around the ship - he was very friendly.
We spent a few minutes with the Shoresounds Duo up in the Palm Court before calling it a day.
