Day 14: At Sea (2)

image

Our afternoon began with another ship sighting in the Adriatic. This time it was a containership headed toward the boot of Italy.


image

The afternoon's big event was the Crew Talent Show, which began with a group from the Philippines performing a dance act in boiler suits.


image

This guitarist could have named his act "Purple Fog."


image

One of the more popular numbers was a traditional Thai dance performed by the "coffee coffee" waiter from the Garden Café.


image

The Crew Talent Show ended with a deadpan send-up of NCL's own "Elements" show. Members of the cruise director's staff came onstage in togas fashioned from bedsheets and towels, then lifted tankards in honor of unseen gods.


image

The number began solemnly (one could even say "pretentiously" or "portentously," depending on one's point of view). It quickly descended into brilliantly straight-faced slapstick.

We won't show photos of the act's slapstick portion, since we don't want to give anything away.


image

After the crew show, we went on deck and saw another small ship--this one headed north, as we were.


image

A crew member was already painting the woodwork at the Freestyle Towel Exchange in preparation for the next cruise.


image

With disembarkation less than 24 hours away, some passengers were making special departure arrangements or paying bills at Guest Services in the Atrium.


image

That evening, after dinner, we drank ice water by the stern railing in the Great Outdoors Restaurant.

(No, Cheryl wasn't auditioning for the Blue Woman Group--she was reflecting light from the blue-tinted lamps around the stern.)


image

The moon shone over the water. (The smaller lights are from villages on shore.)


image

When we checked the position display on the TV after retiring to our cabin, we could see that Norwegian Jade was slightly northeast of Ancona, about two-thirds of the way up the Adriatic toward Venice. Our 14-night cruise was nearly over.
