At our last port before returning to Baltimore we looked out to cloudy weather with a little drizzle. Maggie and I hadn't booked any excursions for here, so it was a laze-around-the-boat day for us.

During the course of our 10 day cruise we had participated with many on board activities, including the cake decorating contest. This trip they pitted the hotel manager (left) against the cruise director (right) with one of the pastry chefs (center) showing how it should be done. The results were delicious. Our waiter Dexter made sure we all received a piece of cake from the show.



One evening they performed an aerial act in the Centrum of the ship. We had seen them rehearsing the show during the cruise, and the actual performance was amazing!


Once again we reserved a table for dinner at one of the specialty restaurants, Izumi. The food and service was excellent as before.

Another meal we had was at Chops, where they hosted a tour of the kitchen followed by a huge buffet. I believe I gained about 10 pounds on this cruise!

The meals in the main dining room were always mouth watering, and the staff treated us like royalty.


On one of the formal dining nights we had a group photo taken with the Captain.

After docking in Baltimore Maggie, and I drove Geri and Johnny to the airport while Terry and Lars drove back to NJ, and Marilin and Herb drove to PA. We had a marvelous vacation with all, and look forward to the next time!
