Disembark and Barcelona
We took our luggage with us to our last breakfast in Parrot Cay. A waiter was posted at the door to keep people out until 8:15. We talked to him while we waited and he said the last cruise will be mostly Brits as school does not start yet. He also mentioned the noise level and the wait staff did not do some of their show because the families were so unruly. He said the 4-day cruise prior to this one was a complete disaster.
Breakfast wasn't up to standards. I had cold blueberry pancakes but at least I had syrup--Norene didn't get any syrup. Paul and Stephanie had watery scrambled eggs.
Sad way to end... should have gone to Top Siders.
From there we left the ship and got in a very long line for taxis. The taxi took us back to Tryp Apolo but we could not check in for a couple of hours. Stephanie had a stomach ache and my cold was much worse so just hung out until our room was ready then I had a nap.
I felt better in a while so we took the family to the Guru cafe/bar and everyone enjoyed their food.
I had the Gorgonzola cheese spread on slices of baguette with thin apple slices and honey and walnuts again as well as bruschetta and tropical iced tea. Paul had what they called an omlette but I think we would call it quiche.
On the way back to the hotel, we stopped to see the living statues on Las Ramblas. I read that they have to audition for spots.
