Day 57–Thurs., Mar. 3, 2011–At Sea

     Tried to sleep in this morning, but I couldn’t.   Ray did before I called him at 9:15 and told him he had just 15 minutes to get breakfast.  Ooops, I looked at the dining room time and not Lido times.  We talked for a while with a table mate and then went to the Art Auction.  I made Ray put in a $5 bid on my painting and we put a $12 bid on a koala.  We were late getting up to the end of it and lost the koala and my flower had 5 bids on it and sold for $9.  Go figure.  We made a cash donation and left.  There will be another action near the end of the cruise.  I went to Willy’s office and set the date for the next Cruise Critic Meet and Greet for March 9th in the Explorer’s Lounge.  Soon I will have to talk to Tom and set up the final Luncheon for CC.  I won’t volunteer for this job again.

     A quick cod lunch in the dining room and I went up for painting to make another flower and work on a couple of my other pieces.  Ray watched a movie in the cabin.  I went to crafts and worked on my string art.  We learned a new stitch for the center.  Then it was down to the cabin to get ready for formal night.  It seems like these formal nights are very frequent.

     The entertainment was wonderful.  It was singing sensation Tamara Guo, a superstar throughout Asia.  Our gift tonight was a vinyl rain poncho.  Clocks go back an hour tonight.  It was a good thing as there was a Royalty Ball in the Queen’s Lounge and we have a 6:30 call in the morning for a temperature check in Manila.
