    Ah yes, the port now lines the pier with colorful dances moving about as ships approach to ensure all captains can see the pier.

    Wine induced discussion with a friend on land who has only cruised RCI once.  I had to prove her wrong so I brought a pocket measuring tape with me on the next cruise ?

    Absolutely!  Keep an eye out for contact later today.
    Here is our Cruise Director Abe Hughes hosting the Love and Marriage Show.  

    Abe has been a great CD.  He told a joke during the welcome aboard show on day 1 which he credited to Johnny Carson, someone he admired growing up:
    "If you're wearing a speedo but you can't look down and see the speedo, you're over the speedo-limit"
    So true...

    At 340 points the single supplement reduces from 200% to 150%.  Unfortunately this comes at the cost of double C&A points for solo travel as well, beyond 340 solo travelers don't get double C&A points unless in a suite solo, or if they don't use their C&A status during the booking process.  I'm hoping to hit 340 in 2019 so I can afford a Norwegian Fjords cruise, and a Hawaiian cruise, and...  Once i hit 340 I can look at more exotic destinations that would have been too expensive at 200% to justify it for just me.

    So just cracked open the laptop and discovered the final Windjammer Recon had never been posted...
    So a day late figured it would be better than nothing....
    For the final day Chef's Special was the Mongolian Live station.

    This time around the station was setup slightly different with the veggies at one of the larger counters and meat where everything is cooked.



     
    For a first they had a small caviar station

     
    Finally the main dessert display, and yes this post is Red Velvet free.

    If one picture could best describe the day it would be this one

    With it being the last sea day Captain's Corner was held. Once nice thing is was held in Dazzles so there was plenty of space. Afterwards it was replayed on one of the TV channels in the room.
    During lunch I stopped in Windjammer just for a quick recon. Stand out items was a "Thank You" cake, giant apple pie, and a jumbo sandwich.
     


    Leaving I stopped for a few minutes to do a Scope of the band that had setup outside of Windjammer.
     
    Some point I made it inside the Starbuck for a few quick pictures. For some reason I think I missed a menu board.
    Just remember...




    Then headed over to Pub. As mentioned previously I noticed a vodka that I haven't seen at any other bar.

    Rest of the day was just a blur, final Windjammer Recon Dinner Edition (will be a seperate post), dinner, gift giving and other goodbyes, packing, and enjoying a final meal of champions.

    twangster got a reaction from Garnet21 in Solo Dining in MDR   
    I cruise solo often but I am also a frequent business traveler and for years I've grown accustomed to eating alone on business trips. 
    I tend to go with My Time dining in the MDR.  I've never asked to be placed at a shared table.  I am always seated at a table for two but by myself.  Generally speaking the two seat tables are pretty close to each other so it's easy to start a conversation with tables around me.  Sometimes those people are not into that, sometimes they are.  On Serenade I was given a bottle of wine for issue I had in Chops and I shared it with the couple at the table beside me in the MDR.
    I generally look at the menu and decide if I want to go to the MDR that night or eat in the WJ.
