A smooth day at sea but too chilly to be out on the open deck.
My arrangement with the waffle maker continues to work out so breakfasts are turning out to be OK. I am getting my own coffee refills as I empty cups faster than the wait staff can get back around.
Another full day of lectures ahead.
I am starting off with the 10:00 AM lecture by Christine Roussel in Illuminations. Christine is an art restorer and we have been on QM2 together in the past. Her presentation – “Art Theft” – drew a pretty small turnout, which was very unusual based on past talks.
Hanging out on Deck 3
At 11:00 AM, we head to the theater to hear the Celebrity Presenter, Sir Ivan Lawrence, speak on – “My Life of Crime: Defending the Infamous, etc”. Sir Ivan is an amusing speaker with a lot of humor thrown in – some of the levity is Brit oriented so I didn’t understand it.
We had lunch up in the King’s Court buffet (Salad Bar and pizza).
In the afternoon, we attended the 3:30 PM presentation in Illuminations by Derek Fraser – “Caribbean Slavery” - such a down topic – we didn’t stay for all of it.
Once again, the Maitre D’ got us a table for two in the Britannia Dining Room.
Showtime tonight was “Jingle Bell Rock” – a wonderful show of secular songs by the wonderful singers and dancers. Very entertaining. Ironically, one of the songs not performed was “Jingle Bell Rock”, which I had seen in the past and really liked. Maybe, next time.
