Even with the short lead time, the cruise was considered a rousing first time success. Everyone on board had a great time and the karaoke on board was wonderful. The Ecstasy already had a wonderful karaoke host named Kim, “MADE IN CHINA” that offered great vocal and humor to every show.
Fun was had by all with activity filled days and nights and of course the great food at all hours of the day.
Wendell Payne, President of KWCUSA, hosted karaoke for KWCUSA cruise members only and everyone enjoyed the intimate karaoke in Chinatown onboard. The competition qualified five competitros for the national championship. They were:
Al Wieda Pennsylvania
Caryn Lutz Pennsylvania
Maria Maroun Pennsylvania
Ronald "Lee" Linch Texas
Victor Cruz Florida
