Tuesday at Sea: The Smooth Jazz Cruise Aboard Westerdam

It’s all about the music here on the Smooth Jazz Cruise. I don’t pretend to know a lot about it, but the performances in concert last night had me tapping my toes and, of course, swaying with the beat. Ranging from the simplicity of unplugged guitars to the rich sounds of multiple horns, Westerdam was rocking.

For today at sea—the sky is blue and the sea is full of “smooth” wavelets. Clearly we’re in for a beautiful day full of activities and behind-the-scenes looks into the lives and careers of the musicians who are working so hard to entertain us.

In addition to the lectures and autograph sessions, there may be a Smooth Jazz “Idol” in the making aboard Westerdam. One talented passenger will win Wayman Tisdale’s Star Search competition.

Pictured here is the little towel critter created by Hendry, surely one of the most personable cabin stewards at sea. The Smooth Jazz Cruise bag will come in handy when we go ashore in Aruba tomorrow.
