Final Cruise Day: At Sea...

What a fun final Cruise Day. We awoke to every deck chair being "occupied".

I loved this write up on Cruise Critic:
What's secretly handcrafted each night in your cabin by a skilled artisan and looks like a monkey wearing your sunglasses one day, a manta ray holding the TV remote another and an angry spider eating pillow chocolates the next? If you guessed "towel animals," you've been on a cruise before (or you read my first blog post). Towel animals, left behind by room stewards during turndown service, are one of cruise travel's longest-standing traditions. (The towel dodo bird reportedly made an appearance on Titanic). And it's clear that cruisers have a profound love affair with these creatures.

For many, the food is what cruising is all about. For us, not so much but I will tell you the most unique thing I ate was today's breakfast choice of french toast encrusted with cereal. While I chose Honey Nut Cheerios, our tablemate chose the Fruit Loops. It was all good- once.
The Chocolate Extravaganza was also fun- once. Where else can you eat as much chocolate as you could possibly dream of?

Art auctions, ice carving, a Q & A session with our entertaining Cruise Director, another visit to the Comedy Club and hours spent reading in a deck chair. Our final day at sea had us both doing what we wanted to do. It was a relaxing way to end the cruise. Tomorrow we debark at 8 AM. We will gather our Camper and begin our road trip home. So this is my final cruise post. It was fabulous and we are so happy we sailed away, if only for a week.
Author Terry Pratchett summed up our current feelings, “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
