Glaciers & Glowtinis - Day 11 Sea day

Disclaimer - today was so relaxing I forgot to take many pics, so some of the food and cocktail pics you may have seen before 😳 I promise I made up for it on the next day 😂

I woke up reasonably early on my last full day aboard and decided to have a leisurely breakfast in the main dining room to get the day off to a good start, so I was in no rush to actually get up and ready, so it was around 9 by the time I left the stateroom. I had no intentions of continuing my hunt for the Caneletti restaurant so headed straight to Donatello very easy to find and only a small queue waiting for a table.

I was very quickly seated and decided to switch my order around today nothing too drastic, I still ordered the poached eggs on toast, but opted for sliced bananas first rather than the usual orange segments. I also ordered some tea and some juice to go with it. Im pleased to report that breakfast was just as nice on this ship as the previous one and I thoroughly made the most of it as I knew I would not have time to come back in the morning as I wanted to be off the ship as early as possible.









Im afraid today will be a very boring read as I really didnt do very much! I headed to the sun deck with my kindle and set up camp for most of the day I also had my iPhone as I wanted to catch up with family after missing the previous day, but when I went to log into the Wi-Fi it was still not working!

I was seriously annoyed by this time, I had paid for a package of minutes and had only used around 15 of them, and I was getting off the ship tomorrow, so made a mental note to head back to the internet caf later in the day to see what I could do.

I spent the morning relaxing with my book, consuming ice cream and drinking the odd cocktail or two before I decided to have 1 last attempt to log in to the Wi-Fi. It still wasnt working, so I decided to head to the internet caf to sort out and then pick up a latte and a snack as breakfast was starting to feel like some time ago by now!





I got to the internet caf and joined the queue of people who were not happy with the Wi-Fi situation, and was overhearing some of the conversations they were assured it would be resolved by 3pm at the latest, and that any minutes would be carried over to the next leg of the cruise. (the ship was heading to the Panama Canal following its stop in San Francisco). This seemed to appease most people, but wasnt a lot of use to me I wasnt staying onboard for the next leg, and by 3pm most of my family and friends would be in bed there was an 8 hour time difference! I explained this to the guy fielding all the queries, and he very reluctantly agreed to give me a refund of the package. He took my details and I made a note to check my account to ensure it had been removed (it was )

I then headed to the general shop to buy a fridge magnet from the Golden Princess and couldnt resist adding a tube of pringles while I was there!



I wandered over to the caf to but a latte and headed back up on deck to continue my chilling pringles, kindle and movies on iPad were my afternoons entertainment!

At around 7pm I headed back to my stateroom to see what the arrangements were for disembarkation the following day I was really surprised to find that we all had to take our own luggage ashore with us Ive never seen this be mandatory before, although always offered as an option!

I hadnt really unpacked very much as it was such a short stay, so I packed up what needed to be packed and debated what I fancied doing with my last evening onboard. They were showing the British Invasion show in the theatre (which I had already seen!) so I decided to skip it and spend my time with a movie on my iPad I also couldnt face the idea of a further scavenger hunt to find the dining room, so headed up to the buffet to get something to eat. I was being really picky, but nothing really took my fancy, so I picked up a couple of lemon zest cookies and headed to the pizzeria for a couple of slices. The pizza was as delicious as always, but the cookies were amazing! They were so good, I decided to head back in to the buffet and get some more for later!

I headed back to the cabin via the caf to collect a latte, and while there I heard the musicians playing in the atrium there were only 2 of them, a lady with a violin and a lady with a cello, but they were fantastic! I could have listened to them for ages, but they packed up after an hour sadly they had a real mix of music they were playing, but their rendition of Titanium was fantastic! I was sad when they had finished, but it felt like a perfect way to end the cruise, so I headed back to my room with my cookies and packed up the rest of my things ready for an early start.

It was at this point I was gutted to realise I couldnt find my Tiffany bracelet remember how well I thought I had checked my stateroom on the Coral Princess I now realised my bracelet was carefully left on my bedside cabinet so that I wouldnt forget it 😢



I resolved to contact the lost property team as soon as I had access to wife, and then decided I couldnt let this spoil what was left of my trip so tried to put it out of my head until I could do something about it.

I then headed to bed with my kindle and the lemon zest cookies to enjoy my last sleep onboard - tomorrow I would be arriving in San Francisco 😂
