After leaving Cozumel for another wonderful day of cruising, relaxing on board Jewel of the Seas and enjoying the pools and fabulous food,
we returned to the Port of Tampa early this morning.
Disembarkation was a quick and easy process (our luggage had to be outside our room by 8 pm last night) - we were off the ship by 8:45 am, our shuttle picked us right up, and we were in the car and on our way back to Webster by 9:15, with many new memories stored safely in our minds and camera.
Our final dinner in the main dining room last night was an extra-special treat, as the Food and Beverage Manager had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us at our table! I had introduced myself to him earlier in the day, complimenting him on the buffet and our total experience, and had asked him exactly where in Ohio ("on Lake Erie" is what it said in his bio) he was from. Turns out he's from Sandusky, right up the road from our summer "home" in Port Clinton these past few summers, so we had a good visiting about that, and he asked what time we were dining so he could have a bottle of wine for us.
A nice way to wrap up five fun days!
