Another quiet night (the earplugs continue to muffle the whir and there is no guitar strumming late). People are sleeping in today as indicated by the number of open window seats in the Oceanview Cafe. Calm seas and blue skies grace my morning view.
My talk today, “Forensics and History: The Search for the Unknown Titanic Child” was scheduled in the Theater at 10 AM.
Another good turnout – the talk ran a little long and I had modified it to shorten it. I’ll have to check into that.
Following me was the Captain’s Q and
A so I finally met Nate, the Cruise Director, who seemed satisfied with my
presentations. The turnouts for the Q
and A session, normally a full house, were about the same or maybe smaller than
my presentations. I guess the passengers
know all they need to know about the cruise ship and its operation.
The entertainer tonight is Drew Pournelle, who is going to sing "Vintage Vinyl" hits from the 60s and 70s.
He had a booming voice and most of the songs were familiar – he is a
polished performer and has all the moves on stage. He’s entertaining if a bit loud. I took a pre-show shot of the Theater so I would remember the entertainer's name later.
It was already too cold to sit out on the open deck so we spent a little time in the Ensemble Lounge. From there, we got some snacks from Cafe Baccio (no lemon tarts on this cruise) and off to our cabin..
