Friday, December 21, 2018 - At Sea - Pacific Ocean - Mostly Cloudy - 60s

Still beautiful weather as Grand Princess makes her way back to San Francisco.

My third talk, "The Search for Jack the Ripper" draws the consistent attendance seen throughout the cruise.  Not an issue - the audience is still engaged and eager to learn.

The day is spent reading and relaxing up in the couch area of Deck 15 Aft.  This venue is becoming more popular so you have to get up there and stay up there.

While we were up there, I shot the iconic picture of Ellen against the railing on Deck 15.  You can see what a gorgeous day it is today.

Lunch and dinner were both in the Horizon Court.

After dinner, we took in the production show - "Born to Dance".  Before the show started, I took a picture of the Princess Singers and Dancers, who have entertained us throughout the cruise.  They are an excellent troupe.

This is one of the newer Princess Shows - I think it debuted last year or so.  It combines singers and dancers with commentary by Broadway and West End performers (displayed on huge screens).  It's a pretty impressive show and it has evolved a bit from the first time we saw it. 

The show was great with numbers from several Broadway productions including:  "Dancing Queen" from Mamma Mia.

"He Had it Coming" from Chicago (a staple on ships).

A medley from "West Side Story"

"One" from "A Chorus Line"

and, of course, the finale - "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray.

After the show, we went to the Wheelhouse Lounge to see the party band, Los Desperados.  This band has a dancer than wanders through the dance floor without a partner - sort of free style.
