January 20, 2013 (Sea Day)

This mornings Good Morning Amsterdam show included a chat with the onboard florists from Holland who are responsible for a large array of floral arrangements throughout the ship. We attended Barbara’s presentation on “Things to See and Do in Moorea and Bora Bora” for our upcoming stops in a week or so.

David Pasta presented a lecture on the ancient people of Easter Island and why and how they may have carved the giant Moai statues. It was a good background for our visit to Easter Island the next day.

Sandra Millikin presented a lecture on the architecture of the South Pacific, which also included a discussion about how the South Pacific style influenced architecture in the states. Restaurants with tropical themes became popular in the states in the 60’s and 70’s.

There was a large pool party this afternoon with the orchestra playing, food was served and many games were played. The weather was quite warm in the sun but very pleasant in the shade and all had a good time.

The entertainment this evening is a comedy show with a touch of magic performed by Martin Daniels. Kent was lucky enough to be picked out of the audience along with two other gentlemen to be a part of the show. Since Kent is always looking for a reaction he could not resist telling the audience he was a porn star when asked what he had retired from. That brought a roar from the audience and Martin was quick with his jokes that followed. It has allowed Kent to meet a few more folks onboard who have stopped to make a comment on his performance.
