St. Petersburg, Russia – Day 2

Stage Manager’s Log M.S. Prinsendam Friday, June 30, 2006 St. Petersburg, Russia – Day 2 Today was a much better day. We moved rehearsal up to 1030 so that we all could have time to get off the ship. After rehearsal, Elena, the pianist who is performing tonight invited Celina and I to go out with her and Tom Sutton. It was certainly a good thing to hook up with Elena, as she is Russian, and it is never bad to hang around with someone who...

St. Petersburg, Russia – Day 1

Stage Manager’s Log M.S. Prinsendam Thursday, June 29, 2006 St. Petersburg, Russia – Day 1 Well, I am stuck on the ship today so I guess I will make the best of it.

Rønne, Bornholm, Denmark

Stage Manager’s Log M.S. Prinsendam Monday, June 26, 2006 Rønne, Bornholm, Denmark Today I could have slept in, but I had plans to go out with some of the cruise staff around 1030. After we got off the ship we saw a bike rental place where we each picked up a bike to ride around the town. The weather today was not great, it was drizzling a little when we got off the ship, and the sky was overcast all day. As we rode into town it started...
