>Don't miss the lectures by the naturalist, Brent Nixon.<
That sounds like the person we had on the Regal last year. If so, he was fantastic, better than most shows. He was very animated and unique in getting out his message about the wildlife we were about to see. I recall his first lecture the room was half full. Then word of mouth got around the ship and by his last, it was standing room only. He's address a different kind of wildlife at each lecture, one on the bears, one on the whales, etc. If that was your naturalist, you lucked out as he is the best.
Appreciated the reminder about the mattresses. I just called my TA to make sure they had noted our request for the foam mattresses which they said they did.
