Did ending our vacation and getting back on land end with a thump, someone asked yesterday? Not really. We were ready to get on with the rest of our lives. Now, you might ask, a ship with 6,000 guests must be a 'royal' pain to get off. Again, not really. As on most ships, our bags were packed and left outside our stateroom door at 11 PM the night before. We had preselected the time we wanted to get off the ship, therefore giving us plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast aboard. They assign you a waiting area till your bag number is called. Ours was the comfortable seating at Studio B, the ice skating area (yes, they have one of those too). From the time we were called, till we were sitting in the air-conditioned van and off to the hotel was no more then 30 minutes. Since our flight was not till around 6PM, we booked a hotel pool to hang out around for the afternoon. Everything went smoothly.
I say impressive!
We're ready to book our next passage!
For us, there is a certain allure.
