23Mar Oriental Formal Dinner & Charity Dunking for Dollars

There have been few pianists for on-board entertainment.

Pianist and comedian Dale Gonyea was on last night.

It was full of fresh ideas with his own funny song lyrics combined to piano and slide photos that made him unique.

Polish pianist Filip Wojciechowski and his base guitarist and drum trio were on twice few days ago.

Filip’s selection of classic from Chopin and fusion classic mixed with Jazz was quite entertaining.

Dale Kristien, one of singers who played Christine in L.A production ofThe Phantom of the Operafor 5 years after Sarah Brightman, was last night’s standing ovation.

She was on board 2 years ago and still offered audience sensational and enjoyable performance.

Our table invited Dale Kristien for the dinner tonight.

We were all impressed by her pleasant personality.

It was very interesting to hear all about her life in the theatre especially starring with Michael Crawford as the Phantom.

She also toured Australia with him.

There was an Art Auction yesterday morning on board.

Passengers who have been attending watercolor class donated their paintings for silent auction to raise the fund.

The fund will go to BalikaNiwasa orphanage.

Kids from the orphanage will be on board to perform for us in the afternoon just before when we sail away from Colombo, Sri Lanka.

And, the fund raise continued this morning with cruise director Bruce who organized Dunking for Dollars.

Few volunteers from ship’s staff will enjoy plunging into the pool.

We have got the perfect weather for it while in the middle of Indian Ocean with temperature of 35C.
