As I enter our stateroom, sitting there right out on the counter is the tip envelopes that Grace had left in our room last night. Its a grab and go, ALL RIGHT! Then I remember. My wife had decided not to use the tip envelopes, but instead was using thank you cards she had purchased before we left home. These are nowhere to be seen. After 10 minutes of searching, I give up, and head upstairs to Animators Palate. Yolande meets me at the door, and of course remembers that Im at Table 25. I inform the boss (aka my wife) that I couldnt find her thank you cards. At which time she lets outs a breath of exasperation for my incompetence, and heads for our stateroom. 2 minutes later she was back. One problem, though. In our busyness of the last 24 hours, we hadnt sorted through everything. Over the next 45 or so minutes, my wife was sitting there filling out the thank you cards. I know Witt and Miguel were wondering what she was doing with all these cards she kept writing in, and then handing to me to verify the cash was right and did I think we needed to add more or not. (We invariably did.) Finally, after debating tip amounts at the table, and her writing furiously, we seal the envelopes just in time for dessert. Now, Im not one to normally eat dessert at all, and over the last 3 days, Ive eaten a dessert at practically every meal. Im pooped out on desserts. When Witt asks me what I want, I reply Nothing. You want no dessert? Nope. Not tonight. Nothing for me. A few minutes later, desserts come out, and Witt brings me a plate, with Nothing written in chocolate on the plate. He thought he was funny. I went ahead and ate it. One thing about the show at Animators Palate. Does everyone think its overrated? I think the problem with it is that its a neat show, but everyone has made it out to be this really incredible thing, and you just cant do anything extraordinary in that kind of setting. Its a nice little touch, and is probably the one restaurant that you dont want to miss, as long as you remember the show is a nice background feature but is not by any sense of the imagination a dinner play that will entertain you for the full hour. So, what do you do on the last night of a cruise that you have thoroughly enjoyed? Pack, of course. Its interesting to note how much harder it is to get everything back into your suitcases this time, even when youre holding the souvenirs off to the side. But after packing, theres a few last things we have to take care of. #1 We head up to the top deck to have a final glass of champagne and celebrate the memories of the trip. As we took the aft elevator, a few of the Microsoft guys on their way to Palo for dinner got on with us. Remember the exchange I heard on Thursday: This cruise will be horrible. Theres way too many kids on board. Tonights conversation was: I wonder what theyre going to do next year. They have to switch cruise lines every year, but none of the other lines are going to be anywhere near as good as Disney. How things change, huh? #2 We pulled the trigger. Back to the future cruise desk for the secret verandah room 7620 on the Sept 23 4 day Wonder cruise. Yeah, were coming back. The only debate was whether we wanted to do another one this year, or wait for the double dip cruises next year. Were gonna do both. On our next episode HECK NO, WE WONT GO!
