    Our taxi driver picked up us promptly at 2pm, and though he waited 15 minutes for another couple to show up, we were back at the cruise terminal in no time at all. Patti was going to do a little shopping and picture taking, while Ryan and I found an outside bar and had a few drinks…..

    Once back on board, we showered and relaxed in our cabin, until it was almost time to sail. We went back out on our “secret” deck to watch the festivities. The lines to get back on the ship are still fairly long, even though they are using two gangways…..

    The wait staff paused to sing to us…..

    [​IMG]

    This was our waitress, Danuela…..

    [​IMG]

    We really enjoyed our dinner at the Cucina del Capitano, and felt it was well worth the $15 upcharge. We will definitely eat there again when we go on the Sunshine next summer.

    Afterwards, we both went to the casino to play some blackjack. We both wound up even for the night, and we were back in the cabin fairly early.

    Here are tonight’s turndown service and towel animal, along with the suggested tipping guidelines. It was another great day. Good Night!!
