Tuesday Evening

It took quite a bit longer to get everything uploaded to the blog, so I didn’t have much time to get ready. We made it to the cocktail reception by 7:15 in time to see them thank the staff and crew. They also did a slideshow of photos from this trip, the passengers, etc. We then went down for dinner and were joined by a gentleman from Wales, who lives in Spain, a Dr. and her husband who are from Leichester in the UK, and David, the cruise director. I had mentioned something in passing to the maitre’d about upcoming menus and if we would be having escargot. Well, last night they appeared, just for us and they were so good. We had several other courses, but the entrée we all chose was the beef wellington. We were enjoying the company at the table so much that we missed the early show at 10, but made it up to our usual lounge for the 11:15 show. It’s a good thing we went early because the place was packed. The funniest part was when we walked in they were playing “Lady in Red” and I had on the red gown. There was another woman who also had on a very similar dress and she ran up and grabbed me to get a picture. We joined our tablemates from dinner as we enjoyed more singing and dancing. David later came over and spent time talking with us. He ended up coming back to the suite with us where we had some champagne. It is really nice to have the bar in the room, fully stocked. He left just before 2 am and we had to get out our breakfast menu, we made it in under the deadline. Once we all readied ourselves for bed it was 3:00 am. It was another late night for this crowd.
