Rick and Susan,
Thanks for the reply, we know that on the Dawn, Bernie had quite a following and we heard many people note that they were glad to have the opportunity to see him perform in such a great setting.
We also found him very approachable and willing to share time with us at our table during his "breaks". Bernie told us about his professional journey which started 4 years ago when he was selling pianos and ended up going to work in Japan. He had some good breaks there and ended up coming back home to work on Cruise Ships.
Again, if you find yourself on a ship with Bernie, make sure that you check out his performance early in the week because you will be going back every night.
