We left port at 4:00 instead of 3:00 for some reason. We passed under the Confederation Bridge at 7:00 pm. Reminded me of going under the Sunshine Bridge out of Tampa. Not much clearance.
Since I had eaten Chuck’s portion of the mussels and oysters in addition to all the other food on the tour, I wasn’t very hungry for dinner. Chuck agreed to eat dinner in the Lido. I had soup. He had the pork chops. I forgot the photos.
We didn’t go to the second show of the guitarist/singer duo on the world stage. Instead, we attended all three sets of the Ocean Bar Band. Since we had such a late night, we were glad to be able to set our clock back an hour when we got back to the room.
Woke up to a cold, foggy morning. We were going very slow again because we had re-entered whale territory.
We had our last main dining room breakfast. We shared a table with a couple from Arkansas. Enjoyable conversation.
Since we have an all-day tour in Quebec tomorrow, we started the packing today. There will still be last minute packing tomorrow evening.
We got our disembarkation tags and paperwork that let us know that our HAL transfer to the Montreal airport is at 9:00 am. Our flight is at 2:00. We don’t know how long it will take to get there or what to expect at the Montreal airport regarding security and customs. Just hoping for the best.
The program today advertised a Dutch-themed lunch beginning at 11:30 in the Lido. I assumed they would have it until 2:00, normal lunch hours. We played slots until 12:45. Once we got there, the Dutch Corner had been replaced by the regular sushi section. I was disappointed that I had missed it. I had a bowl of seafood chowder.
At 2:00 pm, I attended the cruise director’s lecture “The Hidden Story of Canada’s Famous Symbols.” It was very interesting.
Our last load of laundry was returned. Nice to pack clean, fresh clothes.
Soon, I was getting ready for our last dressy night.
