on the Queen Mary 2 bridge

Posting from the Pacific - Day Thirteen, Ron writes he spent time with the ship's Captain..."I was curious about how he divides his day between administrative chores and the craft of sailing the greatest ocean liner in the world. He said unfortunately about 95% of his workload is purely administrative, not unlike the president of a multi-million dollar company with nearly 1,500 employees and an average customer base of more than 2,500 demanding passengers."

Ron also gives us the inside on the ship's entertainers:
"Entertainment on the Queen Mary 2 is a big deal and Ray Rouse, the ship's Cruise Director told me that during the 81-day round-the-world cruise there will be 70 different acts performing aboard. I wondered how this would all be possible and was told acts are constantly joining and disembarking at ports along the way." Ron's sail to Sydney continues. Bravo Ron and thanks!
