The Phantom Lounge
Phantom Lounge
Usually after dinner, Grandma Bert and Grandpa Roy went to the Phantom Lounge to watch a show. This was the ship's theatre. There were plenty of seats and it was never completely full. There were a couple pillars, though, that hindered viewing the stage from a few seats. Waiters and waitresses roamed the theatre before and during the show if you wanted to order a drink.

In keeping with the theme of The Phantom of the Opera, these over-sized half masks the phantom wore on his disfigured face decorated the walls of the Phantom Lounge. Notice how the eye glows red. Hercules was holding up the ceiling.

Here you can see seats for the audience with tables and two of the half masks the phantom wore. This photo gives you an idea how large those half masks really were. Don't the eyes look evil?
