What a treat to get another sea day. It was a gorgeous day and I had breakfast at the Blue Iguana Cantina while Sister T enjoyed the buffet.
The item on the left is a huevos ranchero without the egg and with guacamole added. On the left is an arepa which is sweet.
We decided to spend the morning at the pool as it was a gorgeous day.
It was refreshing and as you can see not crowded.
We had passed the Florida keys earlier in the morning but due to a medical emergency had to turn back and meet a coast guard cutter off Key West in the afternoon. It was our last medical diversion but not the last emergency.
After cleaning up we went to the dining room for Sea Day Brunch and got a table for two. Our meal started off with popovers.
Sister T had the caesar salad with jerk bacon. It’s not really jerk bacon but the same thing you have every morning.
My entree was steak and eggs and tasty as ever. (Does anyone eat those baked tomatoes?)
Sister T had the pasta dish.
This time, I tried the caramelized cheesecake. It was good but rich.
In the afternoon we went to the crew connections talk with the Captain and other officers. This was one of the unique programs included in the Carnival Journeys cruises.
We found it very interesting even though we didn’t always appreciate the fellow passenger questions.
It’s our last elegant night and we had a formal picture taken after getting ready.
We felt funny posing but I really like the way it turned out.
We then hit the tasting bar on the way to the Alchemy bar. It was comfort food night.
I liked the soup better than the ham and cheese melt.
I liked my cocktail the best.
Before we knew it dinner time had arrived.
My two appetizers tonight were the crab cake…
Followed by the four seasons salad.
I selected the dual of filet mignon and short rib for the entree.
Am I the only one that things it should be “duo” instead of “dual”? Well, on to the dessert menu.
The Grand Marnier Souffle was the finish to a wonderful meal.
After dinner we headed to the showroom for “Big Easy” where for the first time I can recall in over a dozen cruises the show had to be stopped. One of the dancers fell into the band pit and hurt the drummer.
After a 10 minute break the show continued but you could tell everyone was shaken up. I headed to my room and found a friendly face.
We also had luggage tags which was a grim reminder that our vacation was ending soon.
