Tuesday, March 6, 2018 – At Sea – Atlantic Ocean – Mild and Breezy – 70s

The earplugs are minimizing the hum and groan (still sounds like fan noise) in the room.

I was at the Oceanview Café when it opened and took a picture of the sea just after sunrise.

After touching up my lecture for today, we both went to hear Eddy Jenkins at 11:15 AM in the Celebrity Theater.  Eddy’s talk is entitled  “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Music”. A rather sparse turnout for the cruise director. The presentation also had two numbers from Passion Duo – “Imagine” and “Hallelujah” (only three verses).  (Note:  These songs were repeated several times during the cruise).

I was on right after Eddy at noon in Celebrity Central – “The Search for the Unknown Titanic Child”. The crowd was SRO and standing two deep in the back. Even so, this would be a small crowd in the theater and minimize the audience connection so we’ll keep it in Celebrity Central unless someone complains. The talk ran 53 minutes.

The Oceanview Café was still crowded so I got my food and went to the Spa Café to join Ellen. The Spa Café is a more peaceful lunch venue than the buffet (and the breadsticks are delicious). 

After a relaxing and beautiful afternoon on deck,

Dinner was in the Moonlight Sonata Dining Room.  I was so thrilled because they offered tomato garbanzo soup. I bit into something I thought was tofu (?) but it turned out to be chicken. The Executive Sous Chef and the Asst Maître D all came by and apologized and I got a new bowl of soup. I was told it was an error by the garnish person who put the chicken in my soup post preparation.

Entertainment tonight was provided by comedian Dan Grueter – very funny interaction with the audience guy. Not a lot of energy from the crowd.

We also took in Michael Redden in the Ensemble Lounge.  Some of his material is a 10 on the melancholy scale – still the sofas are comfortable and the place is relatively quiet.

We purchased tickets for excursions in Antigua and St Lucia.  Looking forward to that.
