Day 7- final sea day
Final funtimes for the cruise:
Final funnel. Can you guess the theme:
We did the Dr. Suses breakfast last year and was not a fan of it so we decided to forgo this year. It is $5 a person. When I inquired about it they changed it to where you could no longer chose late (9am) or early morning(7:30am). If you wanted late, You had to wait til the early time slots were filled then try to sign up for late. I ask the lady at the time, how many slots were left for early and she said 20 so I knew it would be a hassle. But you can sign up on deck 10 in foyer of the forward elevators when you embark if you like.
Well the dreaded last sea day had arrive. I wan anticipating the feeling of not wanting to leave but I had no choice. We awoke around 8am and headed to Breakfast. I had my last 3 final mimosas of the sailing.
We headed back to the cabin to pre pack in anticipation of tomorrow. From a lesson learned last year, I know that at noon, they would roll out the luggage tag cart on deck 10 for those who would not self assist or was priority. Around 11:45 I headed there and joined the already growing line. This year they put it in the fun times to let guests know where and when to get luggage tags. Wow, they must have learned their lesson.
There were 2 times to choose from and 3 rows of tags: 930am-10am had zones 6 to 15 and 10am -1030am had zones 16 to 37
(this is an old pic from last year. The debark times have changed but it is to give you an idea of what the tags look like.)
A crew member rolled the cart out and left. People were just standing there confused so since I was somewhat of an expert, I jumped in to save the day?? I stood there for 2 hours helping people understand the debarkation and zoning process. Of course in my survey I made it know that they should have someone stationed there to help assist guests and that i will be sending my invoice for services.😉
Once that was over, I went to relive a very not happy husband so that he could enjoy some time on the ship before tomorrow. I gathered the boys and went to have my final shrimp basket:
This was also the day for the chocolate extravaganza in the buffet which was a disappointment. It seemed last minute and rush. Not sure why they waited to have it on the last day. Was only 4 cakes. Not a lot of options like I have seem before. I settle for the bourbon pecan cake:
