Friday was spent on the ship all day.
Weather was great with a breeze created by the ship's movement.
We explored a few places we had not been before, then visited
some of our favorite spots, (usually ones with food!) Watched a
demo on how to make a black forest cake. It was mostly for
entertainment rather than instruction. The pastry chef was
giving directions and the cruise director and a woman from the audience
were trying to follow along. It was quite a hoot..
Ed wanted to take on the climbing wall again and remembered he had to
have socks. We didn't want to walk all the way back to our
room, so Ed borrowed socks from one of our dining room friends, Dave.
Some people are so nice they'll give you the socks off their
feet! Ed climbed then we found Dave and Theresa to return his
We had to get all our bags packed before dinner and put them outside
our door. We kept what we needed for the night and next morning.
Had a beautiful sunset then it was off to dinner then hit the bars!
Lots of fun activities go on in the Safari club. It was
karaoke night and I was urged on by Ed and our other dining room
friends, Nan and Jennifer. Nan and I went up and sang (or at
least attempted) the Lion Sleeps Tonight. They commented that
they didn;t think they had anyone choose that song before! Later
the four of us went to the Vortex for the disco atmosphere. Nan,
Jennifer and I burned off a few calories with our dancing about.
Lots of fun.
The towel art for our last night was a stingray.
This is our last entry before leaving the ship. We are actually
finishing this up on Saturday morning as we wait to be called to leave
the ship. They have everyone separated into groups and we are in the
9th group of 12.. Once we are off the ship, we'll collect our
baggage, get a shuttle to the airport and pick up our rental car.
The drive to St. Petersburg is about 3 1/2 hours and our flight
leaves there at 5:50pm.
What a great way to celebrate our upcoming 30th anniversary!
