It was nice to sleep in today. We’ve been getting up early all week to make sure we got to see everything on the islands that we wanted to see. Today though, we’re just sailing the open waters, so, we slept in. I tell ya what, those cabins are so dark that when I thought I was waking up about 8, I was surprised to see it was almost 9:30. I enjoyed not having to rush around to be somewhere. We ate breakfast, shopped a little, then headed to the Lido deck to bask in the sun one more time.
All together it was a lazy day full of shopping on board, lounging around, and just relaxing…..hoping that the day would last longer than it possibly could. Being on a cruise ship is different from other vacations. You don’t have a lot of contact with the outside world. Your community is your fellow passengers, and your news source is a television that gets limited channels. It’s nice to completely get away from everything familiar….even just for a few days. The last day at sea is both my favorite and least favorite day. It’s great to be able to just do a lot of nothing all day, but it means the vacation is almost over. Well, at least the seas were smooth today…..and we’ll actually get to see Miami tomorrow.
