Almost every evening, there was some kind of after-dinner entertainment onboard, ranging from ABBA hits to Broadway excerpts to opera.
EVERYONE LOVES GOOD MUSIC
The opera evening was truly enjoyable for everyone, especially as it was more of a recital of best-known and most-loved opera songs from the works of Verdi, Puccini and Mozart.
The Artists of Silversea, which is the name of the group who performed onboard, were truly talented.
Their vocal range was just amazing.
OPERA SONGS AS ENTERTAINMENT
FOR MY DINNER ON MONDAY
And that inspired me to arrange an opera evening as well, as entertainment, for a sit-down dinner I'm hosting in Manila this Monday for about 45 guests.
So I've asked the very talented performers of the Philippine Opera Company to create a similar private concert of favorite opera songs.
It will be an intimate and relaxing evening of wonderful food and equally wonderful music.

FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
Most of my guests are already in Manila, but some just happen to be visiting from as far away as South Africa and England.
This was a great reason to host a dinner for friends from all over.
And how nice to see everyone at a dinner on my first real night back in Manila, after over four weeks of a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
