Day 21 at sea

Sunny, cloudless skies. Calm seas. An island on the horizon - must be Cuba. What a great start to our last day!! Tomorrow, we disembark. But...we have one last day to enjoy.

Even with a few medical issues, this has been a great trip. The two excursions in Barbados and Panama were great and perfect for us. The fact that we had been to almost all of the ports helped to make it a relaxing trip. We could either get off or stay on the ship when in port since we had already seen the port/country - some of them several times. We also had plenty of sea days - great, relaxing days for us.

Interesting trivia this morning. Had to identify countries on a map, capitals and flags. We did OK - mainly due to our partners since we didn't know much. Didn't help us a lot - we finished in the middle. Well...we finished trivia and tribond this afternoon in the high/middle again. Would have been nice to win a bit more - but, we had fun. Pretty good partners this trip.

This afternoon we started packing. Doesn't take long since we don't need to pack the clothes carefully. But, it is a dose of reality - knowing that we're about done.

Got cloudy this afternoon. Temp has dropped to about 70 and it has become a bit windy. Sea seems to have around 5 to 10 foot swells - not too much; but, enough that you can feel the motion.

Well...that's it. We just saw our last show and are back to the cabin to pack. I guess all good things must come to an end. But...that doesn't mean I have to like it. For those of you waiting anxiously for each update (I bet there are a couple of you!), the next updates will be from Rome in July.

Until then - Take care and be well.
