Art got up early and took Mom and Auntie Grace for a walk on the deck at 4:45! The sisters get up at 3:30!!! No kidding! Not me. When Art returned, I just rolled over and said, "Have a nice walk."
I heard a chuckle.
Breakfast was at 6:00. Before going to the buffet, EVERYBODY was required to use the hand sanitizer. I heard one lady complain that she had already sanitized her hand earlier and was just coming back for more food. No, the rule is once you leave the buffet area, you have to sanitize your hands again to enter. I was GLAD of it!
We then went on a tour of the galleys. It was nice to see everything so immaculate. It was huge with different areas for soups, desserts, poultry, seafood, etc.
We had a quick buffet luncheon and then found an EXTRAVAGANZA DESSERT BUFFET set up out on the deck. It was huuuuge! I haven't seen so many desserts in one place since..... I can't remember. Someone told me that they were on a cruise where they had a huge chocolate dessert buffet. Since Art is so-so about chocolate, I'm glad there was a variety.
Art and I went for a walk in the afternoon while Mom and Auntie Grace took a nap.
Dinner! MORE amazing food!
Poached Seafood and Avocado
Grilled Vegetables with chives and Hearts of Romaine
Broiled Freshwater Perch
Mariner Style Black Mussels in White Wine Sauce
Cream Bombe Diplomate
The final show highlighted almost all of the performers we'd seen during the cruise. Our absolute favorite was Darren Romeo. He was totally TOTALLY fabulous! We were very impressed with his musical and magical talent.
We would be returning home the following day and wondered how that would be handled. There were 2,900 passengers to disembark. Boarding had been a breeze. Disembarking would be a whole 'nother experience.
