Norwegian and Baltic Adventures!

Hello from the Baltic on a rainy Estonian morning!

My first few weeks back on board the beautiful Silver Whisper have been a real treat so far. Ports of call in Norway, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Finland, Russia and Estonia have made my life an adventure.

The shows have been going so well, this cast is really fantastic. Last night we premiered the girl’s cabaret show, “Diva Show,” which was a huge hit! I was so excited to perform with these two gorgeous ladies, Kathleen (who I worked with previously on the Wind) and the beautiful and talented Jalin. And I even tested my piano skills by playing and singing ‘Titanium’ with Jalin. It sounded SO good!

Well, old town Estonia is begging me to explore it, but I will leave you with some pictures of my adventures to date:

I’m in love with The Hermitage!

This is going to be a great contract – I can tell!

Next up is Stockholm, Sweden, with one more loop around the Baltic before heading into the North Sea and over to the United Kingdom.  Feeling very blessed!
