Good Morning, cold Atlantic
Our last day at sea. To chilly to go outside.
I had my usual breakfast up in the King’s Court – my set up with the waffle and pancake cook really worked out on this cruise. Breakfast was very reliable.
I attended the 10:00 AM presentation by Christine Roussel on “The Statue of Liberty”. She continued to draw small crowds. I was on at 11:00 AM with “Jack the Ripper”. My voice was practically gone and I really struggled through the talk (at times, no sound came out when I tried to speak). I got through it and a lot of people told me it was OK. Best of all, the attendance rebounded (the crowd was estimated at approximately 450 guests). Maybe it was the topic for the last talk.
In the afternoon, we attended the 3:30 PM presentation by Robert Neal Marshall - “My Fair Lady – From Mythology to Musical”. It was also under-attended but interesting. One interesting part was a comparison of the same scene done by Marni Nixon and Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn sounded OK to me.
The rest of the afternoon was spent reading indoors. I also had to get a picture of Ellen and the elaborate floral arrangement in the Grand Lobby.
Dinner was again in the Italian Eatery.
Tomorrow, Brooklyn NY.
