    Out of the support acts one the Stomping Ivories two pianos and a drummer have become very popular.

    Having filled the other venues they are getting a theatre slot tonight after Ruthie Henshall and Katherine Jenkins have done their slots.

      Both should be good, looks like a cruise worth trying if it is run again...Taffy

            Yes I thought so too - I wonder if the low take up of Ozzies wanting to cruise from Southampton has been a factor?

              These were sold to the UK market but they got it wrong.
              I don't remember how I first found them but don't recall seeing them come through cruise related marketing.

              A lot booked late after it hit travelzoo when that was the first time they heard of the trips.

              The high initial pricing may have put a lot off.

                The weather has not been kind for the sea day yesterday cool and a bit windy, seas crossing the BoB were good.
                Some hard core got a bit of what sun there was many stayed in.

                Catherine did her first session Wed 10 songs 3 frocks
                Looking good after dropping a kid around 4 weeks ago.

                Stomping ivories filled the theatre playing past 12:15am.


                Apart from a bit of moaning about venue capacity there is that warm fuzzy feeling around the ship of people having a good time.

                One change we have made is drop the MDR to eat a little later, quicker and less in the buffet.
                We drop in during the quiet period just before 7pm
                The curry selection has been very good on this trip which works for us.

                It looks like Celebrity may be following the trend of more food aimed at Brits for ships sailings out of the UK.

                  We were Told on Eclipse that they were the only ship in the fleet allowed to alter the menus, to suite UK tastes, I presume that will apply to any ship they have sailing from the UK, along with drink prices including the tip....Taffy

                    On my last cruise I met an Australian who claims to know some of the people who organized the charter.

                    He enquired if the cruise was selling well. My reply was there would have to be heavy discounting if they wanted to fill the ship as the initial price point was much higher than the UK market would bear.

                      Fog all last night so thick this morning you could not see the dock buildings, cleared for a couple of hours now rolling back in for todays stop in Cherbourg.

                      This morning Anthony Ingles tried out a new talk about his families RAF history.
                      Very interesting, his father used to do ship lectures often on Cunard.

                      Julian Lloyd-Weber got a slot in the theatre to redo his talk that was in an oversubscribed venue earlier in the week.
