Today was our last day at sea. Our day started with an early morning breakfast and then off to a lecture by Maria Friedman and to look at art at the delightful gallery. In the afternoon the weather broke and we finally saw sun and wispy clouds. Took a walk around the promenade four times and then had some wonderful English tea sandwiches (cucumber and cheese and tomato) followed by a visit to the spa and gym.
I preordered duck for dinner tonight which was wonderful. Tonight it’s entertainment night on board with entertainment by the Cunard dancers. Fit and talented male and female dancers strutting their stuff in front of a wide variety of very unfit and elderly looking male and females. Both sets were all dressed to the nines. As usual we darted to the side front. Great seats and nobody ever sits there. Thankfully, tonight it was a short show.
Had a nightcap at the Commodore Bar and then went off to bed. Everyone here had their suitcase outside the door at 6 pm. No idea why. Check out remains a mystery to me! There were some pamphlets about it but that all looked like a nightmare. It said to assemble downstairs at 8 am in your designated space etc. We are going casual though. They have my credit card. We have our bags. We will see what happens tomorrow but I am approaching this a bit like checking into a flight. Late and relaxed. Always board last and never hand someone your luggage. If they need you they will contact you and in meantime I’m going to get up early to watch landfall as we sail through the English Channel. Docking at 8 they say. They caught up blizzard delay. And how long ago was that, wow. Time actually did fly. As it were.
