We managed to fill our final sea day with so much stuff that we barely had time to be bored today. We got up around 7 and ate breakfast in the Lido buffet. Then it was off to the main lounge for the morning show again, where I mentioned that Nick and I were celebrating our anniversary to our cruise director and he had a bottle of champagne and an autographed photo of the ship sent to our room this evening. He also gave us Carnival medallions, which I thought were pretty cool. We got the champagne tonight during our turn down service. Now since we don’t drink, we didn’t want to keep it, so we wandered around the ship until we found someone who looked like they would enjoy it. We stumbled across a group of friends playing cards in the library, and they all had wine glasses on the table so I popped in and asked if they wanted the bottle. They were very excited about free alcohol and it turns out that one of the couples in there had recently gotten married so it was a fun choice.
Before I knew it, we were getting dressed for dinner. We took a few more photos tonight at the Carnival backdrops, which we ended up buying a few, and then it was one last time to dinner with Kamal and the guys. For our appetizers, we shared a crab cake and I had asparagus vichyssoise, which is a cold asparagus soup. I really liked the taste of it, but I could not get past it being cold so I didn’t eat much. Soup should always be warm. Nick had two orders of sushi for his appetizer. For our main courses, Nick ordered their southern fried chicken and mashed potatoes. I had a grilled fillet of mahi mahi. Then again, for dessert, one last ramekin of deliciousness and my last taste of warm chocolate melting cake. I really, really wanted to order two of them. But I knew I would regret it. Nick had baked Alaska.
I’m sad that this is our last night, but I am definitely ready to see my little girl and give her some great big hugs and kisses. We have had a really wonderful week though and I’m so thankful that we were able to take this trip together. I’m also ready to book the next cruise!
