Last Full Day Aboard

Friday, 20 March 2015

Another interesting sunrise this morning, snapped off about 50 shots and then faced the daunting task of selecting just one. Leisurely breakfast and got to the cabin about the time Jenny was heading off to the medical centre for some more treatment. The nebuliser is helping her breathing and she will continue to use it three more times before we leave the ship.

The only activity of interest this morning was another culinary demonstration in the Theatre. We did the walk through the kitchen only because our waiter had begged us to do so. It is funny how much the waiters enjoy seeing us around the ship in unexpected places. Tamara in particular looks out for us when she's working the buffet on the Horizon Court.

We had lunch in the Wheelhouse Bar - English Pub Lunch. Jenny chose crumbed prawns and chips AKA Breaded Shrimps and I had Fish and Chips with mushy peas. Then there was a trifle for sweets and as Jenny doesn't eat them, this little piggy had two. Nothing planned for the afternoon so I decided to sort through the accumulated papers and pack my bag. I must have moved some items from the "keep" to the "throw" pile and back again half a dozen times as I procrastinated about keeping or not keeping maps, brochures and ticket stubs. It was all sorted out in the end.

There is still some residual confusion about tomorrow's disembarkation with various opinions regarding who is to blame. The latest explanations is that we leave our luggage in the cabin, assemble in the Casino at 07:30 and wait to be called forward for the Immigration review. We then return to our cabin to collect our luggage and make our way to the Suite, Elite and Platinum lounge. There we wait until given the word that can go ashore. What isn't totally clear is when we have the Customs inspection. I get a little stressed when there are arrangements that have not been fully explained. I know, I should learn to go with the flow.

Jenny has finished her packing too and it is time for our "Last Supper" with Don and Mary. We've shared a lot of meals and enjoyed each-other's company in the dining room and in the Theatre. After diner we enjoyed the singing performance of Mark Preston from the famous recording group -"The Lettermen" bringing the final show of the cruise to a fitting end.

Jenny is off to the Medical Centre again and then I'll have to settle our account at the front desk. We are expecting a call from the Medical Centre to advise that the account is ready for collection and payment

This will be my last posting from the Ruby Princess but I'll continue to record events in LA for the next few days.

Tomorrow we disembark and for the next few days we'll be accommodated at the Howard Johnson in Anaheim. More from there.

Wishing you good health and safe travel.
Have a great day and stay well.
Cheers .. Tony

I'm pleased to read I'm not the only one who gets stressed. Best of luck with the disembarkation. Glad that there are more blogs to follow.

Glad to hear that you'll be in Anaheim for a few days before flying home. Give Jenny a little more time to recoup. There seems to have been more ship confusion than your other trips - hope all goes smoothly on the disembarking.
