Holiday Outing 2019

When you have a good cruise director, you get good ocean views. At least, we did on our holiday outing Monday in Boston’s Seaport District, planned by Cruise Director Cindy Ritter. We had a delicious lunch at Legal Sea Foods Harborside. And then it was off to the movies, in a luxurious theater at Showplace ICON. Because sometimes you’ve got to put your feet up and have your seat warmed. The afternoon’s entertainment was Knives Out, which I won’t spoil except to say that it had something for everyone, whether you’re a mystery fan or just want some good jokes and great characters (Roger didn't love it). Office parties, schmoffice parties.
