murder mystery weekend with the theme of Murder in the Mediterranean. Guests checked in on Friday taking on the character of a crew member on a cruise ship. The "Captain" gave the crew the first night off to have fun on the ship. We started in the "ship's lounge" and played the Newlywed Game. A couple that had been married 44 years won the game! Next the crew went to the "casino" and played roulette and a dice game while having some refreshments. The last adventure of the evening was to go back to the ship's "lounge" and have a Battle of the Sexes. There were four rounds to compete in. The men were winning by a land slide until the last round when the women passed them up, winning the battle. On Saturday evening the "ship's crew" was invited to the "Captain's Table" in the dining room and a murder was announced. Over five courses of food the clues began to unravel the mystery but at the end of the night only one person guest who the murderer was. Tons of fun was had by all and everyone said that they want to return and do another mystery.
