The second of our series of Sea Days. The Agenda is looking pretty packed with up to 6 different things going on at one time on the ship. The Event Planners are working overtime to keep us busy.
As I said yesterday, Captain Harris and his crew are pretty smart cookies. Yesterday was the big Pool Party with free drinks so when you look around the ship today, it’s pretty subdued. Everyone is staying under the radar. The strategy is also good as Front Desk delivered an up-to-date shipboard account statement. With the hangovers going on most people just glance at the HUGE number at the bottom and toss it aside. Who can deal with this today? Did we buy and drink that much? Oh, well….too late to take it back so we might as well keep going…
It was another beautiful day great for sun tanning and hanging out at the pool. The weather this trip has been fantastic, sunny and hot. Our day is broken up with the Songwriting Seminar and Passenger Cabaret Classes put on by Diane Fast in the Piano Bar. The songs that are coming out of this are amazing. The Cabaret show is coming together nicely as well. Rick has been busy putting material together for his comedy styling and I have been working on getting and memorizing the words to my song. It keeps us busy.
Tonight was the Officers’ Black & White Ball. I love the Ball. All the officers get dressed in their black and whites. Most of the attendees dress accordingly so the room looks lovely. Part of the Ball is that the officers have to dance with the passengers when asked so you are always guaranteed a dance with a handsomely dressed man. They had a bit of a game this time in that certain officers had an envelope in their pocket that had a certificate for a bottle of free champagne. If you had picked the right officer to dance with, you would win the bottle. Fortunately for my friends and I, I got the winning officer. So we had a bottle to share in the evening.
After the Ball we all went down to Northern Lights to drink champagne and dance the night away. Even though it doesn’t seem like we’ve done a lot, the day is always full.
