Tonight is the Captain’s Farewell Reception and Krew Kapers. This always a fun night.
Captain Felice Patruno and a troublesome passenger (me).
Apologies for the bad photography, but as I was late getting to the theatre I was not able to get a seat near to the stage so that I could take decent photos.
Being a member of the Krew Kapers is a badge of honour for a large number of the crew, they hold auditions and practice every day during breaks and after work, which is impressive as a day on board, for the majority of the crew, starts before breakfast around 5:30am and, with a few breaks in between dinner services, continues through until 12am / 12:30am for a large part of the crew. If a crew member does not get through the auditions, they keep practicing so that next time, if they are lucky, they get selected for the Krew Kapers on another cruise.
The crew is from countries all over the world and they perform traditional dances from the homes
Plus some rock classics. The entire show is put on by volunteers, none of the cast on board take part.
There are some very talented people in the crew, which makes you wonder why they are not performing somewhere
This guy is from Bali I believe, must be hot in the costume under the lights.
The entire cast singing and dancing, taking the mickey out of the things that passengers say, there is always something new 🙂
After the Krew Kapers are finished, the Captain and Officers take charge to say goodbye to us all.
Jamie, the Cruise Director, introducing the Crew
As usual it was a great night. Next time I will have to make sure that I am earlier so that I can get a better position. There is always next cruise!
