In early March I performed on Royal Caribbean’s “Monarch of the Seas.” It’s one of RCI’s oldest and smallest ships but I always have a good time because they do these 3 and 4 day cruises out of Port Canaveral, FL… and they’re pretty much “booze cruises.” You get a lot of spring breakers and people that are there to party, so the shows are usually pretty good. People always yell stuff out and heckle and I love it because that helps keep me quick and thinking on my feet. Check out my video from this cruise:
When I flew in on the 7th, I took a cab to my good friend, and the greatest juggler that ever lived, Anthony Gatto’s house and hung out with him and his son Gabriel for the day. Below is a picture of me in Gabriel’s playhouse that Anthony built for him in his room. After spending time at his house, we went to the mall and walked around, ate a delicious Subway lunch, then he drove me down to get on the ship.
While on the ship I got to see my good friends Kevin and JC Brando. Kevin plays piano is the Schooner Bar on the ship, and JC was traveling with him for the week. I always have a fun time with them. JC can drink her weight in wine. Also, pretty random, but a girl that I went to high school with, Carolyn Eltz, just happened to be traveling in the Bahamas when my ship was docked there. I was able to get her and her husband along with their 2 friends on the ship to see my show. That was cool.
