Another beautiful day at sea and another perfect breakfast. Today, I swapped pancakes for the waffle and I actually like the pancakes better. I brought Ellen some fried eggs today - I got them right off the grill and hustled to the room. They were still warm. A waffle and fruit completed her meal.
Today, I am giving my first lecture - "The Mystery of the Romanovs". Crystal was supposed to introduce me, but no one came so I introduced myself. The turnout was small - understandable in light of the passenger response to shows and other lectures and, of course, the terrific weather outside. There were probably less than 100 people in the Theater. Of note was that Gary Kramer's wife speaks Russian and she was able to read my Anna Anderson slide and she, too, said the grammar was incorrect.
Tonight's entertainer is Marty Thomas, whom we have never seen before and
who, as part of his claim to fame, beat Britney Spears head-to-head on "Star Search" a while back. Marty was pretty entertaining - a good voice - if a bit loud - and he did sing songs we knew. He spent a lot of time story telling but did finish up with "Defying Gravity" (you can tell by the green lighting)
and he did hit the last note. Also, his entire show as signed for hearing impaired individuals. The people signing are using a light to see the words to the song.
We visited the Eden's acoustic session for a few minutes before heading for the room.
