Sadly, our cruise is coming to an end. The last night is always the worst-
packing, weighing suitcases, exchanging email addresses, more packing...
Today we took the free water shuttle to San Marco Square and wandered through Venice to The Hard Rock Cafe (had 2 Bellinis each), past the Rialto Bridge to a restaurant that had been recommended to us. Unfortunately, it had closed at 2PM and didn't open until 7PM. So we stopped at a place nearby for pizza and more bellinis. Headed back to the ship at 5:30.
Finished packing and had dinner in the dining room. Had drinks and said good bye to everyone in the Observation Lounge and then finished off the night at The Club. We are now about to put our luggage in the hallway and then to bed. See you next cruise!!!

Hi Dr Janey

Still here and enjoying your news! How was Sharm el Sheikh? Thought about it as a possible for a quick week away in the sun from the UK, only if we weren't cruising!

Now what is the Hard Rock????

thanks for sharing.
Fairbourne: It is the Hard Rock Cafe. They are all over the world and in most major cities. They have a gift shop and they sell Hard Rock pins as well as t-shirts, etc. People get the pins as sort of souvenirs to pin on hats,e tc. I always see them on baseball caps. Sometimes covered with Hard Rocks in unique locations. And as Dr. Janey says, they also sometimes trade them to have a complete collection!! See what an interesting past time we have started for you!! Am sure there is one in Scotland!

The Quest is full of wonderful staff and a beautiful vessel. The long flight home is a far cry from the life we've been living these past 3 weeks.
Aram, looking forward to seeing you at the airport and meeting Amanda!!!

Dear Dr. Janey,

It was a pleasure reading your blog. Hope you had safe landings in Oakland. Maybe see you one day on the worldcruise of fabulous Seabourn.

Many thanks, peter

Thanks RHN - yes I know the Hard Rock Cafe - the nearest one to us is Edinburgh, but I do have very fond memories of the original Hard Rock Cafe in London in my days of "gal around town" in the heady, early 80's when everyone was trying their best to look like Princess Diana!

Gosh I had no idea about the pins though, but dont think I will be tempted to start a collection! LOL!

We forgot to pick up our disc of the enrichment lectures before we left the ship!!!!! Francesca or anyone who is onboard now, could you ask in Seabourn square if there is any way we could still get the disc?

Home now after 11 hr flight from Frankfurt. We were in economy "plus" by the windows with just 2 seats. Perfect for my mom and I. We fell asleep during the 1st movie and when we woke up, it only took 1 airline size wine (for me) and 4 martinis for mom to keep us asleep for the rest of the flight!
I will watch for a blog from the quest!!

Hi RHN - about 3 hours drive from us - I like Stirling - we often stop around there if we're driving south, as by then we're ready for a break. And it's not far from one of our most favourite hotels, Gleneagles Hotel.

Isn't economy plus just economy with extra legroom? Perish the thought on a long flight. 11 hours - I would be so uncomfortable, well I just wouldn't do it! So there!

Firstly, remain on topic please when posting as per the guidelines.
Secondly if you must insist on "Hijacking Tthreads" then get the facts straight before you post.
Thirdly, I paid more by booking last minute for that CAT A Off Season on a GTY and I did NOT complain to the Hotel Manager but rather I bypassed him purposely and wrote directly to Seattle HQ knowing very well he was not "empowered" to do anything!
Ta ta & see you later NEOPHYTUS!

Howard, I was going to email Francesca directly, but now i have misplaced her business card!! Apparently Seabourn did not make these DVDs for every passenger. I am hoping that the production guy (whom I never met, unfortunately) would be nice enough to make on for me. My mother is very hard of hearing, and despite wearing hearing aids in both ears, she hears very little of a oral presentation. Since we thought we would be able to get the DVD at the end of the cruise, we didn't make much of an effort to listen to them in our room. Do you think Francesca could ask the production guy if he would be willing to put one together for us? We would be happy to pay him for his time and efforts.
This may sound ridiculous, but my mom is so disappointed about this.
Thanks Howard- I really appreciate your interest in helping me.
Hopefully I will get to meet you on Seabourn in the future.
