Things are going well for Pete. After a long port visit in Seoul, South Korea, he decided to stay on the ship during their recent visit to Baoshan, Shanghai, China. The band has been playing quite a bit more recently, with some big band sets, parades, welcome aboard and farewell sets, and guest boat drills, which aren't really performances, of course, but are part of Pete's shipboard responsibilities!

Things were fine in Baoshan as the ship picked up a new load of passengers following their "Crew Only" cruise from Keelung. Baoshan is actually the name of the port that services the large city of Shanghai, China. This is another cruise chartered by the Amway Company so the Royal Caribbean musicians will have very little work because Amway brings their own entertainment. However, with several new musicians on the ship, it does give them an opportunity for some extra rehearsal. Pete says things are going really well with the band and that he...
