Our final day of the cruise was a glorious day at sea. This is perfect timing for a port heavy cruise that ends with a long day of travel back across the pond.
Daddy and I met Patsy, Ben, Win, and Anita in the Concerto Dining Room for breakfast. We had eaten every other morning in the Horizon Court, but decided to step it up a bit for our final full morning.
Next came a very interesting tour of the kitchen that is used to service the dining rooms on the ship. All through the line there were different types of potato preparations. I’m guessing there were well over 100 types of potato dishes.
After the tour I headed up to a lounge chair on deck 17 for 2.5 hours of sun and sleep. For lunch I had a wonderful slice of pepperoni pizza and a cup of soft serve ice cream.
We then headed to Club 6 for a group meeting on disembarkation procedures. After the meeting I ran 3-miles up on the track, swam a little in the frigid pool, and spent some time in the hot tub.
Our final dinner included a New York strip and baked Alaska for dessert. The baked Alaska was served after the dining room staff did a little Baked Alaska Parade.
After somehow getting all of my stuff packed back into my suitcase and carry ons, and saying our final goodbyes to our cabin steward Glenn, I headed up to deck 19 to watch our ship sail under the Great Belt Bridge that connects the Danish islands of Zealand and Funen.
The cool thing about this is that there was only 5 meters of clearance between the ship’s mast and the bottom of the bridge.
To close out the day I grabbed some coffee and soft serve ice cream and lounged in a deck chair for a couple of hours before retiring for the night.
While on deck I got to enjoy a light and water show set to the music of Michael Jackson.
Tonight we have a long day of travel from Copenhagen to Amasterdam to Detroit to Nashville.
