Today’s presentation at 1:30 Princess Theater – “Genetic Eyewitness” – drew an audience just short of 500 passengers. The description in the Patter was a little confusing and that may have affected attendance – who knows?

Pre-ordered kosher meals (airline type) for tonight – Salisbury Steak and potato fritters was pretty good but the rest of the meals (brisket and some kind of chicken roulade not so much)/  All briskets are compared to Ellen’s wonderful dish – no competition.

Showtime tonight featured “Motor City” - left a little early – too loud for us.  We have yet to see this show in its entirety.

After another nice breakfast, I went over my next talk over an iced mocha latte.  There has been an ongoing confusion over the size of the latte I ordered and whether is was hot or iced but it is being sorted out.

My 11:30 AM presentation – “Search for the Unknown Titanic Child” – drew a Full House (a handful of seats here and there)

2:00 PM – Crossing the Equator – we actually crossed the equator at 4 in the morning but the official celebration is at a more reasonable time. It looked like the same show we saw the last time we did this on the Golden Princess.

King Neptune and the Crossing of the Equator Fest

Entertainer – Salvatore Hasard – multi-instrumentalist and singer – just saw him on the Crystal Serenity so we decided on quiet time this evening. (Salvatore is a nice guy – we chatted with him in the Entertainment Wing – I didn’t recognize him because on the Serenity we sat in the way back).

Finished “Moscow Rules” – good book but did not give me the boom boom ending I wanted. Started Tess Gerritsen’s “Playing With Fire” – a non Rizolli and Isles book.

Also spent some time with Arny Galoyo up in the Schooner Bar.
