At Sea - April 20, 2015
Today was our last sea day and it was perfect.
First things first - my missing laundry found its way back to me. Whew!
We decided to poke around the galley in the self guided tour of the galley. The floor is actually very slippery in there. We got a fact sheet before the tour which outlined what happens in each kitchen or prep area and the amount of food they go through in a week. Like 300 gallons of ice cream per week. PER WEEK! From what I saw last week, I believe it. They also go through 23,040 eggs and almost 12,000 pounds of meat.
We went to the port talk which was a whirlwind overview of the next 5 ports of call. We have private tours booked for all the ports except Monaco. We learned that we have to tender in to Monaco which is a pain in the butt so we are thinking about taking a ship tour. Tendering means we drop our anchor in the sea close(ish) to land and the tender boats have to take us back and forth to the port. We also have to tender at Santa Margherita but we have a long day in port there. Our Monaco day is pretty short.
We had lunch at our favourite restaurant - the Tamarind. Lunch is free at the Tamarind but it's hard to get a reservation. After lunch we walked the deck a bit and then we basically laid out by the Lido pool until happy hour. The sun was out and it was about 22. Tough life. I shot this video with my phone and at the end I made a prediction that came true on May 6, 2015
It was a formal night so we got glitzed up (as glitzy as we get) for dinner and caught the show after. We finally caught a glimpse of the new captain at the captain's toast.
I love sea days!
