After showers, we went for breakfast. After that, we had basically a whole day with nothing much to do. The room steward was making up the room when we got back from breakfast, so we took our books back up to the Grille and sat and read for about half an hour. There was a Debarkation talk at 11:00 that I attended. I didn't really need the info as I knew most of it already from reading comments about the cruise on Cruise Critic. ( Aside: if you are contemplating a cruise, go to that site and read, read, read. It will make things so much easier for understanding the ship, ports of call and the like.) Jaime, the cruise director, told us about the comment cards we would be receiving and how to mark them
We went for lunch. The hot pastrami sandwich I got was very good. After lunch we both took a nap. I certainly needed one as I hadn't slept well the night before due to some vibration from what i assume was slightly rough seas and speed. We decided on self-debarkation, which meant we didn't have to have our bags out the door by midnight. I packed a little, while watching the overreacting press waiting for Hawaii to disappear from the tsunami that was supposed to hit. We dressed for dnner and went to the Farewell party. They had free drinks and even a couple of somgs we could dance to. We got to go up on the stage and dance. They had some break dancing guys and a really good magician. We then went to dinner.
Everyone was present for dinner. I had lobster bisque and St. Louis Spare ribs. The bisque was good and, while not hot, was more than warm. The ribs were hot, but the french fries weren't, so I didn't eat those. If I am going to blow my diet by eating french fries, they had better be hot. Dessert was a disappointing Grand Marnier Souffle, which didn't taste much like Grand Marnier. We said good-bye to our table mates and waiters and returned to thecabin to pack.
