Wonderful experience on recent cruise

One of the guest speakers on our recent Panama Canal cruise was Paige O'Hara and her husband Michael Piontek. She is the original voice of Belle in the animated Beauty and the Beast. She is also a Disney Legend and an artist whose work is featured in the Disney Fine Arts collection. Her husband has played Beast in various productions. She gave 2 wonderful talks and also hosted a Q&A session. I could have listened to them talk for hours as they both had such a wonderful story to share. In addition, they had some of her lithographs for sale, which she graciously autographed as "Paige O'Hara - Belle." I was thrilled to come home with one of those which I will proudly hang on my wall. This was, by far, the best souvenir I've gotten in many trips.

Oh my! I'm so sorry we didn't get to meet up...we were probably listening to the talks at the same time! I sadly did not get her autograph! Wasn't she wonderful, though?

I, too, am sorry that we missed each other. She was, indeed, a great addition to the cruise.
