It is official and planned. Today will be our last day at sea in this run. Tomorrow morning we will dock in Cobh and leave there on Wednesday 1600. Yep, overnight. Dublin is completely a non-starter unless someone wants to take the train up on Tues and come back late the same day or the following day prior to sailing.
I don’t really care, but a lot of people really, really want to put foot in Irish soil. Most especially, I am assuming, the two Irish Immigration officers who boarded in the Azores. I don’t think that Amsterdam is in their plans.
Spent the afternoon sitting and relaxing with Carmen while we both did needlework.
I had been planning on using the second meal on my BOGO tonight. Mentioned it to Carmen and Stu, they decided to join me since they have OBC to burn. When I went to round them up in the Colony Club we added two more people to the party. Amazing that I received no pushback from the restaurant going from solo to three to five. Lovely run dinner and I just made it back to the cabin.
Having been to Cobh before, I am going to avoid the mad rush off the ship and head off late morning. This is a stop with a couple of small museums, several nice hotels which serve tea, and a grocery store with yarn tucked up in bags over the dairy case.
