A small glimpse into the foods consumed while on board..
I have walked passed this corridor several times and glanced at the displays, always thinking I will stop and have a good look, but never quite got there until our journey home.. Better do it now or I wont get another chance.. It was hard to take photos as the glass was very reflective, but there were about 6 large displays in all and each of them held memorabilia from Marlene Dietrich's Estate..
Gorgeous dresses, vintage suitcases and photos... I am so glad I didn't miss it, I would have been so disappointed.. I took a heap of photos but they were just too glary.. anyhow here are a couple..
As we were heading into Brisbane we waited in the Wheelhouse Bar and I thought I would snap a couple of photos in here too..
Each day we had a list of activities delivered to our room with "what's on offer" for the next day..
Here is an example of what we could have done with a couple of high lighted item that we marked ourselves.. Mind you, by now we were quite happy to "veg out"...
We played bingo on the last day and Wayne hit golf balls into the spa (arranged activity not trying to kill people..lol)..
I did get a little stitching done - ...
3 Ruth's quilt stitcheries - not ironed.
For our last night we all chose to get together in the Traviata Dining Room, and what a blast that turned out to be.. At 7 o'clock the crew started singing Waltzing Matilda, which we all sang along too, while they waiters danced around the room (about 20 of them) while holding trays of Baked Alaska's on them... Amazing atmosphere and everyone was singing, clapping and waving our napkins around... This was such a great way to end the trip.... and the baked alaska was delicious...Hellooooooo Brisbane... even though we have gone from wearing jumpers etc, to coming home to hot humid day, I am still happy to be home... (and after all - I do have air con so the humidity is only annoying a little).
I am home now - all unpacked and hugged the kids that are at home - the rest will be hugged in the next couple of days... I have patted Maci, who has not left my side since getting home... and have made a couple of cups of coffee, phew didn't forget after all..
I have hung our cruise tags up for now, but I will take them off their clips later and pop them into the memory box.
I have some facts to add here just because I can, before I sign off..
We travelled 3785 Nautical Miles = 4350 statute miles (1 nautical mile = 1.15 statute mile).
The Sea Princess holds a maximum 2270 passengers and 854 crew..(that's approx. 2.65 passengers for each crew person) No wonder we were well looked after.
I'm going now - all worn out - glad to be home but not sorry we went.. Had a ball...
Now to re-cooperate....
