October 17, 2018 – At Sea – Mediterranean Sea – Partly Cloudy – 70s

In zombie mode this morning after dealing with the Crew Party last night and early this morning.

I had a wonderful breakfast on the back deck just a little after sunrise.  The Mediterranean is just beautiful this morning.


My last talk – “Forensic Detectives:  Identifying the Famous and Infamous” was at 11:15 AM in the Celebrity Theater following the Captain Vitto’s Navigation Talk.  I started and ended on time.  The audience – for this demographic – was great – a little bigger than the previous talk – 35 percent full.  I consider this lecture series a successful effort.

I have been getting veggie burgers for lunch at the Mast Bar (Deck 10).  They take about 15 minutes and are pretty good.  I usually eat them in the Spa Café, where it is generally quieter.

Just before dinner, the ship sailed through the Straits of Messina.  We could see the coast of Italy as well as Messina all lit up.

Showtime Tonight featured “December ‘63”, a Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons cover group (from LA, Detroit, Sussex England, and Brooklyn).  Great individual vocalists, great harmonies, and super choreography.  Interactions with the audience were funny.  One of the best covers.

We caught Izzy and Moe in Café Baccio – this was their last day on board after a 5 month contract.  Very easy to listen to.  Too bad we discovered them so late.
