The introductions were followed by a mean-spirited and open opportunity racist comedian, who mainly joked about all the foreigners and obnoxious children on his last cruise. But, honestly, I laughed and laughed. Then there was a fifteen minute song and dance number with four young people (high school students?) backed up by the accomplished ship's band.
This morning we ate breakfast at an intimate table for two next to the window, looking out on the endless ocean.
Today has been very slow and lazy. I listened to two lectures, one about the history, geography and politics of California, the other about a sailing ship called the "Pilgrim" used for living history demonstrations. I also used the treadmill for half an hour, and walked a bit around the track.
We also met up with a group of people who post on the website cruisecritic. We sat around, but didn't criticize cruises.
A nice dinner with two of the cruise critics and Blanche and Sol. I ordered all the healthy choices and refused dessert, so I'm feeling smug. The song and dance acts this evening were fun, with all the great old tunes from Cole Porter and other great song writers.
