At least they were equipped with 2 kegs and wine!
This was probably the first ball I have attended that alcoholic beverages were provided for free - well at least until we boarded the boat, at which point the drinks cost a small fortune!
I found it rather amusing to watch the "tourists."
Apparently we were quite the tourist attraction because the sidewalk was lined with people watching, pointing and taking pictures.
"Old" E/1-30 IN ladies!
Me and my handsome Captain!
