GWV 2014 — Last Days, Disembarkation, Home!!

My strength is the strength of ten, because my heart is pure. ~~ Lord Tennyson

Shipboard Life
At the Captain’s Farewell Champagne Reception, Port lecturer Barbara gave a concise and poignant recap of the ports we visited.

Rita Rudner’s show in the Queen’s Lounge was hilarious. I laughed continuously at her never-ending one liners.

Marty Henne gave a casual concert in the Ocean Bar the night before disembarkation. Unfortunately, most were preoccupied with packing so the audience was small.

We were about 30 minutes later in disembarking than originally planned. The line for the porters took another half hour. Pat and I did manage to get all of our suitcases (I had double hers!) with one porter. We took a taxi to the Budget rental car place. I enjoyed driving the Chrysler 300 that Pat had reserved. A very nice car. We arrived at my house about 5:30. Pat rested for a short while and then drove on home to Georgia.

It seems to take me longer every year to unpack and organize and go through the tons of paperwork.

I plan to fly to Hong Kong the middle of January and board the Volendam for 42 day cruise in Southeast Asia… plus add-ons!
