Ken Byrne sings “Chicago”…..





The waiters dance to “Hey Baby”….



Our guy Agapito…….



After dinner Patti and I went to the casino to do battle once again. She held her own on the slots, while I had a pretty good night at the blackjack table. It figures that my luck has been pretty good the last couple of days, and now the cruise is almost over!


As a sidenote, I played blackjack with Daryl and Ginger, the couple that were on the Pride for 70 straight days, embarking in Baltimore on January 2nd, and they will be getting off in Baltimore on March 12th. What a fun couple!

Tonight in the Taj Mahal is the Playlist Production of “80’s Pop to the Max”.

Al Katz and Scotty K are back in the Punchliner Comedy Club tonight.

Back to the cabin to find tonight’s turndown service…..



Coming up next: Sea Day # 7, or “Baby it’s Cold Outside!!!”

Saturday, March 11th - Our 7th and final Sea Day.

Our final Fun Times of the cruise…..











We are rocking and rolling again today……





Though it is mostly sunny outside, the temperature has dropped dramatically to the low 40’s. For the first time all cruise, I’ll be wearing long pants during the day.

At 8:30 am we made our way to the Sea Day Brunch. Even though the ship was rocking there was a long line to get in. It moved quickly though.

We were seated all the way aft, across from the rear windows. Looking outside you could see how rough the seas were…..





Patti started with the flaming tomato soup…..





She also had a tomato and cheddar omelet with a side of turkey bacon…..



I had a mushroom, peppers, and cheese omelet with a side order of corned beef hash…..



Several times while we were eating, because of the rocking, I had to stop our plates from sliding off the table. The crashing of dishes was heard quite a few times while we were there. Lol.

After the brunch, Patti was going to do some last minute shopping, and I was going to visit Winston at the Red Frog Rum Bar. The Venus Pool area was a ghost town. I was the ONLY one up there. Winston was bundled up like he was at the South Pole it was so cold. Wish I got a picture of that! Lol.





The Apollo Pool area.....





I hung out with Winston for a couple of beers until it was time to go to the second slot pull of the cruise. Here they are taking sign-ups for the slot pull…….

The slot pull begins. There are 46 people signed up. As like the first slot pull, everyone gets 5 spins…..





Here I am taking my spins…..





Patti takes her spins......





Neither one of us made any money on our spins. When all was said and done, we all got $11 on our $15 investment.

Afterwards, I went back to the cabin to start packing, while Patti went up to the Mermaid’s Grille to take pictures of the Chocolate Extravaganza and the other lunchtime opportunities there. First we’ll start with the Chocolate Extravaganza…..









He does the dipping into the chocolate for you…..

Once back at our cabin I had found our debarkation materials including the zone tags and our customs form. I guess our cruise is really coming to the end. Here is the generic debarkation information……





This is the debarkation information for Diamonds…..



At 3:15pm it was time for our VIFP party. Because there were so many Platinum and Diamond cruisers aboard, they had to schedule two parties. Here are our invites…..



Lexi provided the musical entertainment…..

Captain Nicolini and CD Steve…….



Our friends Ken and Kris……



One more drink for the road…….



After the party Patti went back to the cabin to do her packing. I went up to the Mermaid’s Grille for our last game of LCR for this cruise.

I made one last trip to the casino and had another great session. I was tempted to stay longer, but since I had gotten back to even I decided that was good enough!

I made it back to the cabin in time to catch the last sunset of the cruise. Boy it was freezing out on the balcony……

For dessert, I had the cherry pie ala mode…….



Tonight, Ken sang “The Way You Looked Tonight”. The waiters sang “Leaving on a Fun Ship”. Agapito and I are both sad that the cruise is over! Lol…..



The waiters then danced “Gangham Style”…….



Here are Patti and Agapito……



Tonight in the Taj Mahal was the “Hasbro, The Game Show”, followed by the “Back to the 50’s” show.

Once again at the Punchliner’s it was Scotty K and Al Katz.

We chose to call it a cruise and head back to the cabin. This is the saddest picture of all……



Our final turndown service of the cruise……



Coming up next: Debarkation day, final thoughts, and a look to the future.

Sunday, March 12th - Debarkation Day - Boooooooo!!!

We woke up at 6am, just as we were passing under the Key Bridge. I went out on the balcony to take some pictures as we pulled into Baltimore, and it was 25 degrees outside. Brrrr.







The Carnival Pride was officially back and docked in Baltimore at 7am. We weren’t doing self- assist so we hung out in the cabin until 8am, when we then made our way down to the Red Frog Pub where Diamond members would wait to be led off. They had coffee, tea, juice, Danish, and cookies available while we were waiting…..
