The Long Cruise: Follow Me! - Nearing Land



Day Seventeen: A Formal Day at Sea

As the captain promised, sunny skies and nice temps in the high seventies. We were up at 6 am to see the sunrise and have an early breakfast.
The cruise is definitely coming to an end. Today the bridge handed out info about customs and disembarking, and delivered the bills for all the extras that guests ordered .
It is our last day at sea. Tomorrow morning at six we will dock in Half Moon Cay, Bahamas, and the morning after, we disembark in Fort Lauderdale. I thought I would be getting bored by this point in the voyage but I am not - both of us are relaxed and completely rested.
This evening is a formal one. We arranged to have dinner in the Pinnacle with Gaby and Matthew, and went to their stateroom ahead of time for canapés.

I ordered the lobster mac and cheese, to see if it was as good as the Gordon Ramsay version that my son makes. Ramsay‘s is better, but this one was good, and had a whole lobster tail on the top.
