On my final Celebrity Cruises voyage this year along the Mexican Riviera, I was pleased to see my favorite jazz quartet The Swingin’ Crew! These talented young musicians are from Buenos Aires, Argentina: Sophia, Ailen, Tomas & Theo are on a six-month Solstice ship tour that ends in January. THE VARIETAL SHOW shared some delicious Bacigalupi Petite Sirah and Kokomo Grenache, discussing some interesting comparisons to their wines back home.

On the Celebrity Solstice and bumped into amazing scientist “Dr. Dave”, AKA David Plourd MD, again after our initial meeting on a Caribbean adventure in January. He shares with THE VARIETAL SHOW his expertise on marine biology, as we dive into the amazing ecology of frozen water, ie. icebergs, glaciers and growlers!
