Hi Nursey! Long time,,,no see! I've missed you!
The lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I sometimes attend the trivia contest,,and find a lot of times, they're really fun. I truly love all the games they play, ie" newleywed/ not so newleywed game, lier's club, (this one is really a riot sometimes) and lots of other games. Most of the "seminar" meetings don't interest me, although once I actually took a piano lesson aboard ship. Take a close look at the "Capers", and I think you'll find interesting activities, especially on sea days.

Marine, Pilot, Singer, Tuba Player, Carnival "Diamond"!

Nurseypoo--The travel and shop talk is all about what you can do and buy. They go through the various tours for each port and so on. That part is really boring and can be viewed at any time of the day on the tv in your cabin.

The shop talks can be avoided, but the one thing about the shop talk is they do throw free stuff out into the crowd. They promote the stores that are on their recommended list, so don't expect to see any and all stores listed.

Your best bet is to jump in the pool or to take in the other activities going on around the ship. The ships with seaside theaters show entertainment most of the day. This is a good time to sit back and watch something on the big screen!!!

I like being outside where the weather is nice, not stuck inside in some theatre. I go away to enjoy the warm weather. Bob
