20th Anniversary Cruise Part 2: The Fun Ship, Day 6

This morning’s breakfast was some coffee from the Lido and breakfast bars we brought from home.

We relaxed in the cabin until 10 am when we went to the Bacchus dining room for Seaday Brunch. Kathy had eggs over-easy, hash browns, and bacon.

Rich started with the Flaming Tomato Soup and then blueberry pancakes with a side of corned beef hash.


Then it was to shop. We found a pink cap and t-shirt for Kathy and a dressier hat as well.


We stopped briefly back in the cabin on our way to the Serenity Deck for some reading and the drink of the day, Mai Tai.


After sweating too much, we headed back to the cabin to finish our drinks. Then Rich went up to the Lido buffet to make a salad for Kathy and get some Caribbean food for himself.

We enjoyed our shady restful cabin with a little time on our balcony where we spotted our one and only dolphin of the cruise. We rested in our cabin until 5 pm when we got ready for our final formal night dinner.

We arrived at opening and requested a booth for another anniversary dinner celebration.
Kathy had Chesapeake crab cake appetizer and terriyaki salmon. Rich had clam chowder (not very good) and the salmon.

For dessert, we both had a few bites of the Grand Mariner soufflé. Kathy had a decaf coffee, and Rich had another Limoncello.

We each enjoyed a glass of Santa Julia Malbec from Argentina.

A photographer stopped by to take some pictures, and then the wait staff surprised us with an anniversary celebration — chocolate heart cake with a macaroon and a candle. They sang Hoppy Anniversary to us. Very lovely.


We strolled the promenade deck briefly before heading to our turned-down cabin, a little time on the balcony, and then a movie, The Imitation Game, which was very good.
