We ordered from Room Service this morning because of my early lecture. Our go to meal is buckwheat pancakes with bananas and walnuts along with eggs – Ellen has been getting waffles with eggs and some fruit. It all comes quickly and everything is fresh and hot. Best room service we have encountered.
I had a good turnout at the Galaxy Lounge for “Extreme Forensics: Non-Human DNA Testing” – about 50-60 percent (approximately 300 people). One of the factors for the turnout was the fact that about 100 passengers disembarked in Barbados and about 60 new folks got on. There are many passengers who have told me they watch the talks on TV.
Both Ellen and I stayed for Louis Beres’ talk about “The Evolution of World Politics: From Adam and Even to the Present”. This was advertised as a new talk but it contained elements from his other talks. It was the first talk that had some animations.
A standard sea day – lunch in the Lido Café and quiet time on the deck or balcony.
We attended the sixth Chanukah candle lighting tonight – attendance is still dropping but the Rabbi keeps giving nice background information about the holiday. There were no latkes today – instead we had Indian Samosas (knishes by any other name). Very tasty.
Tonight is Formal Night 2 and we are in Pregro. We both had the mushroom soup in bread bowl and I had a Cesar Salad (ET the Caprese Salad). We both had appetizer portions of pasta for our main course – I had both Fettuccine Alfredo and Pesto and Ellen had the Pesto. Still a lot of food. We did have a pretty good Moscato along with our dinner.
We attended “Across the Pond”, the final production show – a very extravagant show about the British Music Invasion of the 60s and 70s. Lots of multi media and music along with energetic dancing and costumes. Entertaining.
