March 08, 2013
Today we were up and ready to get started, off to the gym today and there was NOONE in the gym, I mean the place was so vacant it was crazy! I did remember to bring my camera today, b/c David was not working out with me, and I knew he would carry it back out of the gym.













So after working out, and cleaning up I met up with everyone at breakfast. We had the normal breakfast, I know it is not very amazing, and does not look like appealing so I will ksip the pictures of it today!
We spent the day very lazy, David even started packing some of the clothes, I always hate the packing day.

We went to trivia,
We had a double header today, for the progressive game; we are currently in third place. Not bad but I know we can do better.
The first today bumped us up to second place, so this afternoon we will have the final round. We head to the Diamond lounge for cappuccino’s and to catch up on the journaling.
Lunch was the roast beef sandwiches again. Those rolls are amazing.
Final round of trivia netted us a second place finish, so we were not first but second is decent, we won, an umbrella, a medal to wear around our neck, a bottle champagne (we will take to dinner and share), and notepad.
I took this picture because I swear I had not noticed it before.


Soon it was time for the lounge meet up and to say goodbye to everyone, we have to get off the boat tomorrow.
I decided to go with an old fashion tonight, it felt like a bourbon night.

[Continued from previous post]

Now we headed off to dinner…

I had the Spanish Tapas Plate, Assorted cold cuts, manchego Cheese, and a Spanish Potato Frittata.

David started with the Pan Seared Sea Scallops and Chorizo, Cauliflower puree with a crispy pancetta and herb crumble


Dinner table mates


David had Cesar Salad, by now this is a shock to see I know…

Then I had Lentil and Rosemary Soup with Maltagliati pasta

David and I both, for the main course had the Rosemary Lamb Shank, Haricots verts, caramelized pearl onions, roasted pumpkin and a Cabernet jus




For dessert we had
Key Liime Pie, Tangy lime curd, baked pie shell, and a candied lime and vanilla sauce

Orange sherbet


David had the sugar free Key Lime Slice
Tangy Sugar Free key lime custard, sponge cake and berry sauce


They also brought David a cake for his birthday; it is tomorrow but tonight is our last dinner…


This also means one last Karaoke night…

David and Jim got up there and sang Brandy, your fine girl, by the looking glass, for me…

It was very funny, then we headed to our cabin, and finished packing up and setting out our luggage.

I know sad isn't it... 12 nights goes by way too fast...

First place got the same thing, but their medals were gold colored and ours are silver colored.

The Champagne was a low level variety, but it was fun to toast everyone at the table.

the last night! We're doing a 4-nighter in July, and I almost feel like it'll be over before it's started. Oh well, we'll just have to cram in all the fun we can.
Love that they sang "Brandy." That must have been fun!

Wow! I can't believe it all went by so fast! The last two dinners, look like the best of the cruise.

I hate the part about putting the luggage out of the stateroom too.

Oh well I guess we have the TA to look forward to now.

Nice looking gym and food porn. It also seems to be a non-sequitur to have those two put together; but it works for me!


Love the look of the frittata.

Last night? Seems like a short trip.

Well a 12 night cruise is not a short trip, but it did seem to fly by on this one. The next one is only 3 days longer...

March 09, 2013

This morning is David’s Birthday and the very last day of the cruise.

We did not get up and work out… We got up, got the last of our things packed and put together, and left the cabin to meet up for breakfast.



After breakfast, we went back to the cabin to gather all of our things and meet back up in our Diamond area for a private disembarkation lounge area. We were only there maybe 10 minutes before our number was called, so we walked off the ship with little problem, went through immigration at the port, it was chilly here in Baltimore, after being so warm in the Caribbean.

We called our son, and he was already on his way to get us, we found our luggage and when we stepped out of the port area there, the son was waiting for us.



We loaded up everything and took off for home. 25 minutes later here we arrived at the house.

Within an hour, we were unpacked and laundry was started. This is a cruise wrapped up and put away for now. We had a great time and enjoyed all the people and just the relaxing get away.

I almost didn't recognize your TR with such a drastic name change!

The trip to Spain should be awesome. I'm lazy and don't want to go back. What are the dates again?
