Everything posted is correct. We are contracted to do more than 8 1/2 months of cruising this year and are already booking into 2008. Oh, by the way, neither my husband nor I get seasick. When we ariive for the lectures the audience is usually assuming that my husband will be presenting the lecture. There are more than a few surprised expressions when I do the lecture. We leave again on 06/23 for a month in Europe.

Sarah -

Do you teach "Photography while Cruising", or do you teach "Photography" while cruising?

TCav-

I teach basic digital camera photography with a real emphasis on getting great photographic memories of the cruise. Many arrive with a new camera purchased only a day or two before departing for their cruise. That is why I always urge folks to purchase that new camera well in advance of their cruise and get to know it very well.

My golfing partner in a match today goes on many cruises as a dancing partner, but is only in double figures. I'd rather be a Photography lecturer - less demanding do you think?

Than dancing? Absolutely. I've got bad knees.

OneEyedDeer-

You are so correct. Your friend's job description is called a Dance Host. Their schedule is both intensive and demanding in my opinion. I much prefer and really enjoy doing Photography lectures.

How long (hours) are your classes? Have you posted a general outline anywhere?
