SA: Sixth (and last) Sea Day

Sunday, January 29, 2023

Occasionally, the Lido will sponsor a Themed Dinner night. Tonight was one of those nights. We had a South American night. We liked the menu, so we decided to eat there instead of the main dining room.

I had the lamb chop, grilled shrimp, and the fish and chips. Chuck had the steak, grilled shrimp, and fish and chips. We both passed on the mussels.

After dinner, we went to the main stage to see the group Evolution Motown. We enjoyed them but I didn’t think they were as good as the group Cantare which has performed on some HAL ships.

Afterwards, the poker group was ready to go since the Casino would stay open late because tomorrow is the last sea day.

While we were at breakfast, I thought I heard the Cruise Director say we had hit an animal. I was horrified thinking we had hit a whale or something. Chuck laughed and said no – there was an “animal invasion.” Once we finished breakfast, we went to see it on the Lido deck. The crew is so talented to be able to create all of them.

I thought about laying out by the pool but it was stuffy in the Lido area and too breezy at the Sea View. Instead, I started packing up some of our more wintery clothes. We have excursions for the next 3 days, so I didn’t want to leave all the packing to the last afternoon of the trip. I really prefer having a sea day just prior to disembarkation day so all I have to do is devote one day to packing.

Listened to the port talk of Montevideo on the TV whle I packed. A knock came at the cabin door, and I thought it was our laundry being returned. Wrong. More gifts from the Casino for Chuck. They do appreciate his play.

I worked on my photos and read for a while. The laundry was delivered around 4:00. It was a very big stack, and I will sort through it tomorrow after our excursion and pack up what I know we won’t be wearing for the next few days.

I have seen several cabins with their disembarkation notices in their mailboxes. We have not gotten ours yet. If I don’t have it by dinner time tomorrow, I will inquire. But now, it was time to get ready for our last dressy evening.
