    WT_!? I thought a scenic cruise for two was to do just the opposite. Like - jump in the shower with her!

    Have you ever seen the shower on a cruise ship? We're not in a suite!

    But, seriously, folks, I appreciate the advice about just being with my wife and I assure you I will not let the trumpet get between us, if you know what I mean! ;-)

    All great stuff and I agree with dedicating the time to the wife. Although, what would I know? The several cruises I took were aboard big grey amphibious warships with a bunch of other stinky, short haired men...but the price was right! Just a thought...large ships have lots of spaces and lots of those spaces are sparsely populated and/or rarely used by the crew. Might ask the cruise line (or Julie, the cruise director) if they would allow you access to one of those areas to practice. I'd also bet most cruise ships have cabins for performers to rehearse and practice in. Can't hurt to ask. Would be nice to practice without a mute.
