By 1000 the ship was empty of all passengers except for those of us remaining for the next cruise and the staff. And coffee – the machine in the Diamond Lounge is scheduled to be operational in just a few minutes. I am waiting with computer plugged in and personal mug in hand.
This is my last cruise of those on the Rhapsody this fall. Yes, believe it or not, I will be actually getting off in Barcelona after “only” four cruises. Why? Well, I mentioned that meeting in Vienna didn’t I? This will be the third time that I have been able to attend. Related to emerging infectious diseases, the conference is held on even years. Promed is one of the major sponsors. Any way, there are no ports new to me on this trip and I am going to be extremely well behaved. Museums are in my plan and not yarn shops at all since I already have several life times worth of fiber on hand..
There isn’t a lot of down time on this cruise with the only sea day being Halloween. [did I bring a costume…..]
