    We're in Barcelona today. Found an amazing sheet music place, and picked up a copy of the Pedro Itturalde piece Czardas Pequenas. Having tapas and...

    In Valletta, Malta, today. This is the first time on this cruise I've been in a port that I've visited previously. I've now officially circumnavigated the globe - though the leg from North America to...

    We had a guest ent last night who played piano, sang, and tap danced. Good show, but the rehearsal was ridiculously ling, due to flaws in his charts. Lots of stuff to read in 6 & 7 sharps!

    Re: Merlin's Cruise ship gig thread

    I find the guest ents alright, some of them pretty good. This line tends to use less of them, and the cruise director does his own show as well. I'm not a fan of it though - seems like he uses it to...

    It varies from line to line.

    On Regent, the band is an 8-piece. Four rhythm, four horns. The two saxes are expected to double on flute and clarinet.

    We're in Safaga, Egypt, tomorrow. The ship arrives at 6:00 am, but with crew drills etc., I'll be lucky to get off by noon. The guests get to go to Luxor. I'd be happy to find a decent coffee shop...

    Ralph, the coffee tasted pretty much the same. Can't speak for the donuts, as I don't eat wheat anymore.

    Re: Merlin's Cruise ship gig thread

    It was actually something I ate on the ship, or cross-contamination. I've done very well with food in port. In fact, I just had a delicious mixed grill of lamb and chicken and an excellent cappuccino...

    In Muscat, Oman, after two days at sea. It's a very clean port and easy to get around in English. In fact, most of the businesses have English signage.

    Saturday in Mangalore. Yet another container port, unfortunately. Far away from anything. The guests get on shuttles and go see the wonders of the world. The crew get more and more disgruntled at...
