Pete checked in from Tianjin and things were fine. He talked a little about his schedule for the future. He said the ship will be in dry dock for 6 weeks and, because of the way the contracts were working out, there would only be 3 musicians on the ship for the dry dock, including the music director. Pete suspects that his vacation may be limited to the time of the dry dock and that he will end up back on the ship when it takes its first cruise after the renovation. None of this is certain yet, as he has not seen a contract or had any direct contact about it from his agent - although, the music director on the ship and the Director of Entertainment for Royal Caribbean are pretty good resources! As of today, Pete has traveled 58,892 miles since he left Indianapolis 24 weeks ago.
