Our final day at sea, but sadly, that also means our last full day onboard.
We were happy to sleep in as most days our excursions had us up very early! After breakfast we returned to the room and started cleaning up and packing. At 11:30 Pirates 3 was showing so we decided to go watch it. Linda liked it better than the first time. We both thought it was probably 40-60 minutes too long. There were some off the wall parts that could have been cut and kept the storyline just fine. I thought it was average… nothing special, but fun in parts. I loved the ending, so be sure and stay past the credits!!!!
After the movie, we went back to pack some more and catch up with some blogs.
We called our dining companions and told them we were going to skip the Farewell show and head to the lounge. Slowly but surely most everyone showed up. We drank martinis, wine and danced to the Macarena!
Luggage had to be in the hallways by 10, so I went up before dinner to put ours out. Would have been nice to have time to do so after the late dining… but what can you do!
Soon, time for our farewell dinner. This is always sad as it signals the end of the cruise. Time for hugs and “til we meet again” for all friends, old and new. Many thanks to all the All Ears readers who introduced themselves! We met some great folks on the cruise who made it even more special. There are too many of you to name, but you know who you are (like Ms. Da-Kar-ei!)
We stayed at dinner as long as we could….talked about next year’s Panama Canal cruise that many of us are on (Fla – LA), and began to discuss possible cruises for 2009. Yes, we are cruise addicts!!!
Slowly, we all made our way to our cabins. All the door decorations are gone now and the room is left with our overnight bags only. It looks so empty.
We had 8am breakfast on Wednesday and everyone gathered, except Glo and Gary. Later found out they decided to leave the ship early.
Guide Gary gave Linda and I our final instructions for the Bus Touristo and assured us we could do it on our own. LOL.
Will write about our Barcelona tour in the next post.
We can’t believe this amazing adventure is almost over.
Deb and Linda
