19 April 2018 – Packing Day
It was both luncheon (the ship turned our simple Cruise Critic farewell luncheon into a really fancy meal complete with menus and wine) and packing day.
Lunch was enjoyed by all. Both Carmen and I have distributed the last of our pins. Mine went to the bakers and pastry chefs who provided us with the lovely scones for tea each day at 1500. And the last couple of guides for the cabin crawl and one of the ninjas. You know – those fade into the background sound/light guys who seem to work a million hours.
I am packed, except for the last of the electronics. I managed to make it all fit, even with the addition of a coffee mug, an extra Royal Caribbean beach bag and four towels. At least I think it all fits. The extra bag I brought over has a broken zipper so I have swapped it out for the second of the Royal beach bags. I am checked in for my flight to Southampton which was a concern since couldn’t manage to convince KLM that I had a reservation as of yesterday.
Today? No problems. So I will spend a quiet evening up in the Solarium since the pool is closed and the place is just about empty. I am planning on being up early for the sail-in even though we are not planning on getting off the ship till about 0845.
(And please remember, I am crrently @ GMT+1, not counting daylight savings time. Easy- I am 9 hours ahead of the US West Coast
