Day 22 - Sea Day

When & Where

sunny 80 °F

Last day at sea. This is when reality starts to set in.

Weather was a nice 80 °F and partly Cloudy.

Being your last day of a long cruise, this is generally the time when you start repacking your belongings and make sure anything you bought at any of your stops can fit into your luggage.

Since I had been on several dive trips, the first thing I did was to rewash all of my gear to ensure majority of the salt water had been rinsed off.

Checking your ships account, making sure there are no bogus entries, or your bill is settled in full. Since I had bought a beverage package, I spent the morning adding up all of my beverages and see if I actually saved money, or wasted money in having the package. (I came out about even, so I was happy)

Along with the premium wine package, there was one final Premium Wine Tasting that I went to, and learned about more pairings of wine, food, and cheeses.

Saying your goodbyes is never easy, especially when you make many good friends of all ages. Exchanges emails, facebook profiles, phone numbers, or enjoying your last meal together.

If there were any employees that stood out, this is a good time to seek them out specifically and give them any tips you see fit.

In the evening, it's hard to to see all the luggage lined up in the hallways for pick-up to be sorted out by the staff once you dock the next morning. Your last folder will also give you instructions on when you are to leave the ship, and if you have your own ride-share, where to meet before getting off the boat.
