Cruise- Day 7
Bett, Cin, and I slept in longer than previous days. We got up and had breakfast in the formal dining room. Ivy and Wil had appointments at the Spa for massage and facial. After breakfast, Bett, Cin, and I walked around, shopped at duty-free, and attended the Disembarkment Information Forum at the Mikado Lounge. I went down to the internet cafe to shoot Aric a quick email regarding our arrival time and transportation arrangements.
was a lazy day. None of us wanted to lay out by the pool....and since
we're making our way North, the weather was cooling down a lot. I
went back to the cabin for a nap, then had lunch with Wil at Tiffany's.
Cin, Ivy, and Bett soon joined us. We walked around the ship, and
while Cin, Bett, and Ivy ducked into the casino, Bett and I kicked
it at the Drama Bar talking.
I was emailing with Winnie prior to leaving on this trip, and we were both discussing how a lot of people trip out on the fact that I'm vacationing without my husband. And since being on the cruise, I've encountered more people who were surprised that we're vacationing without our husbands. What exactly is the surprising part? That our husbands are supportive? That we didn't let marriage change our friendships and/or personal lives? I don't get it??? Out of curiosity, can someone throw me a freakin' bone here?
it's our last day at sea, we had to, divvy up the tip money, fill
out our comment form, and settle our bills. I couldn't believe how
much we spent on cocktails!...between the five of us, we spent close
to $800! They really get you on the alcohol.
We spent the evening taking pictures with all the service persons who made our trip so unforgettable. I can't tell you how many pictures we took on this trip!...aside from the 200+ on my camera...Wil, Ivy, and Cin took a crapload of pictures too...AND the pictures we took onboard with the cruise photogs! We're vain...plain and simple. hehehe We headed down to the Photo-Gallery to pick from dozens of portraits. We narrowed it down to eight portraits (at $20 a picture). Rape!
hung out at Gatsby's Bar with the Oregonians. Then headed over to
the club. For once we shut the place down. We stayed until the bartenders
turned on the lights, cleaned up, and left. I was so beat...Bett and
left around 3am to our cabin. Ivy, Cin, and Wil stayed to hang out
with the Oregonians (I wonder if they like being referred to at the
