What’s worse than a seat saver? A seat saver who saves a seat for someone but then that person never shows up. That was the unfortunate situation today in the Wajang Theater for Good Morning Amsterdam. One of the nice things about this Grand Voyage was the noticeable absence of seat saving in all venues – but to be fair – today was the first instance I have observed this behavior at Good Morning Amsterdam. Sarah Chandler was the guest today as she was the entertainer from the previous evening. We learned that she learned to play the Saxophone at an early age. Her mother plays the flute and her sister the clarinet and they get together back in England for informal jam sessions from time to time. She lamented that live musicians are being replaced more and more by backing tracks and she sometimes wishes she took up the drums since that instrument is harder to replace than others. She plays almost exclusively on cruise ships and is generally travelling one week a month.

While their display remains near the Wajang Theater and the brochures are still in the cabins, Park West does not have any intention to run art auctions this cruise and there are not any Park West employees currently onboard. There is a possibility they may bring an auctioneer onboard for the last leg from Portugal to Fort Lauderdale, but that is not confirmed.
