Day 12 - At Sea
|Wednesday, November 2, 2011: We had overcast skies our last day at sea. No problem! We'd be indoors all day.
|Debbie loves Baked Alaska on the last night of a cruise. However, with a portion of the dining room reserved for anytime dining, it wasn't looking good for having the big Baked Alaska extravaganza.
|When our waiter brought us our dessert without any fanfare, Debbie was sad.
|Hey! It's starting! Debbie is happy again! (Apologies here for the unusual lighting. Tom loves to put his finger over the flash.)
|Here comes the Parade of the Baked Alaskas! Led by the Customer Care dude, Antonius, ...
|... and featuring our adorable assistant waiter, Dedy.
|The parade ended in the introduction of the kitchen and dining room staff, who then serenaded the guests.
|Here's our hot, hot waiter, Andri, ...
|... and the always-smiling Dedy posing with Tom.
|Back in our cabin, Tom prepared for his regular trip to the trash bin on the Lido deck in order to discard old shirts, socks, and underwear that came along with us in our luggage but would not be going home with us.
|As long as we were here, we photographed the pool's dolphin statue in the pretty night lighting.
Here's the saddest part of any cruise -- putting out our suitcases before midnight on the last day.
