Days 7 & 8 ~~ At Sea and Back Home

Day 7 was our last day at sea.  We donned our swimsuits and headed for breakfast.

He was ready to spend his last day on board.

After breakfast we hit the kids pool.

Faith helped Grace see what all the fuss was about in there.  

Then we hit up the mini golf course again.  

Grace got brave enough to check out the dog statue. 

Back to the pool where the boys monkeyed around until the slide opened. 

Then we hit the slide hard because it was getting chillier by the minute as we sailed toward Louisiana.

We did lots of things during the rest of the day that I have no pictures of because I didn't carry the camera around much and my phone had died.  

We played cards, had hot chocolate, had a great lunch and dinner in the Windjammer and did some packing.  

We just got our luggage out in the hall before the 11pm cutoff and headed to bed.  

Saturday I was up at 4am.  Checked the ship channel and saw it was 39 degrees as we neared New Orleans.

We got everyone up and went to the Windjammer for breakfast as we slid into the Crescent City. 

After breakfast we hung around in the adult-only pool area while we waited for our turn to get off the boat.

We made it off, grabbed our luggage - including the bag whose tag had fallen off from the unclaimed bags area.  

We headed outside to our van, loaded it up and tried really hard to exit the lot - finally were able to leave after having to replace the ticket that I had misplaced . . . 

And made it home safely!

Thanks for following along with us, we had a great week!!

Serenade Day 6 ~~ Cozumel

Today we were docked in Cozumel, Mexico.

You can guess what we did first this morning . . .

Breakfast in our favorite spot again. 

After breakfast it was perfect timing for some friendly mini golf.

We were docked next to the Oasis of the Seas

Clubs are overrated.

He appears to have won.

After golf we took a little walk around the ship.

And then headed down to the gangway.

We headed into the port area and did some quick shopping.

Souvenirs secured, we headed back to Serenade of the Seas.

Swim suits on, we headed to the buffet for lunch.

Lunch done, pool deck bound.

Quick trip to a jewelry making class.

Great views.

Goodbye Cozumel and Oasis!  

Up from her nap and time to get ready for dinner.

Towel animal friend in the cabin after dinner.

A little bedtime cheesecake from room service never hurt anyone :)

Stay tuned for Day 7 ~~ At Sea
