Day 8.  At Sea.

Here we are on our last day of the cruise.  It's really gone by too fast.  I got up early and went to the Windjammer for breakfast.  I feel a lot better today, but I'm real tired.  I went back to the room about 11:00 to see if I could get a short nap in, but Alex and Malissa were waiting for room service to arrive so I dozed off on the balcony for a while.  After a short nap, I headed for the Windjammer for some lunch and then sat on the pool deck for a while.  I went back to the room about 1:00 and was able to get in a real nap for about 45 minutes, then headed for the casino.  I did really well this afternoon.  I started with $100 and cashed out with over $400, which put me at the break-even point for the week.  I went back to the room for a while, but finally had the itch to gamble some more.  I took $200 with me and lost it all.  During our discussions at dinner tonight, I started to think we'd been on a cruise with Russell and Kristi before.  They had an experience similar to our "Cozumel Death Tender" and had a headwaiter that did magic tricks on the same cruise (so did we - his name was Hans).  We really enjoyed dinner, but then had to go back to our room to pack.  After a short, and unproductive, trip to the casino, I went to the Connoisseur's lounge where I actually met some of the people I'd been talking to on the pool deck every morning.  I guess I should have introduced myself earlier.  We sat talking until late.
