I'd probably have better luck with Rachel than Giada. I'm a cook, not a chef. But--get me in the Caribbean and I'm in heaven. Up before dawn, on the go all day and into the early hours of the morning. I save sleeping for when I return home or sea days. Let's all talk to Princess and to avoid the disaster f-mattox told us about, they can let me host tours on all of their ships that call on the Caribbean. I can show off their owner's suites, do meals in 30 minutes, show people how to loose money in the casino, show off all the bars/lounges on board and taste all of the specialty drinks-yummo!

Scratch out the suite tours and meals in 30 minutes and that's pretty much what it was like working for them as a musician.
Oh, yeah; and we did play music occasionally.

I don't know if I ever told anyone on this board, but I was an extra in the short-lived "Love Boat - The New Wave". We were aboard the Sun Princess when the first episodes were filmed. I was just one of many faces in the background - they used the paying passengers when they could (even though we got nothing for it). I almost caused Robert Urich to spill his scrambled eggs one morning in the buffet when he rounded a corner and about ran over me (he was in a hurry to eat something between scenes). My big shot at fame!

BTW, I think the only scene with me in it that made it to TV was one with a wide view of the pool deck (I was standing by a banner tied to the railings way at the back of the scene).

Dave, that's great!
It's a lot of fun isn't it, getting to watch the process. I'll have to see if I can find that on video.
Did they shoot the interior shots on the ship or were they done later on a sound stage? The reason I ask is there is an episode of Columbo ("Troubled Waters") that was shot on the original Sun Princess and I recognize all the exterior shots and most of the interiors as being authentic--but I can't imagine shooting in a cabin.
Sounds to me like Robert Urich caused the near-collision, not you.

How cool, Dave, I'll have to look for that episode. F-mattox, I want that job, too bad I have no talent.

Who said it takes talent?

It was the episode where a passenger gives birth aboard the ship. The Captain announces the news of the birth to the ship and all of us on the pool deck burst into applause and cheers. I was standing on the Lido Deck as it crosses over aft of the Riviera Pool. I was on the left side of the TV image, standing by a Princess logo banner they had tied to the railing.

It was at the end of the episode. Not worth looking for it since it only lasted a few seconds.

It may be only a few seconds, but it's YOUR few seconds and I want to see it!

I think it was February 1998 when we took that cruise. Last inside cabin we've ever had - R305 is what it is numbered as today.

That's my favorite location--up high and all the way foreword, although outside--preferably a mini-suite. Minimum foot traffic past the cabin; no smoke wafting in; no neighbor on one side or above; steps away from a panoramic view foreward--almost like another private balcony.

Aaarrrrgggghhhh!!!! 76 days to go!

At least I can print my boarding pass tomorrow!
