After a huge dinner with Jim and Janet at Cucina del Capitano last night, we opted to call it a day and head to our room to relax. Unfortunately at 9p the intercom came on in the room...never good news. A guest needed immediate medical attention...yes, the second time this cruise, so we were heading to San Juan to off load.
During the Q&A for the bloggers with John, the captain, and the senior engineer, we learned that the patient is doing well...and learned quite a bit about the chain of command and the decisions and instant planning it takes for these unscheduled stops. Carnival does an excellent job of taking care of these emergencies, whether it be guest or crew. Kudos to Carnival and their Care Team!
Jim asked about a tour of the laundry facilities and was told this was a first such request. Sure...why not! The four of us have a private look-see shortly to see how our clothes got clean yesterday and to check out where another bag will go tomorrow.
We have tea @ 3 with John, then our final elegant night. Hopefully, we will remember to get a photo of us all scrubbed and clean. We forgot the other night, but I have plenty of photos I could have recycled, had I brought my computer. Yes, the same duds go on all cruises. No tuxes; no formals...just plain stuff that travel well. And yes, I left the computer. Our kids will be amazed at that.
I can be re-trained. Using the iPad exclusively hasn't been too bad.
So we are back on course, heading into Nassau on time tomorrow for a short stay. That is fine with us. We'll probably just stay onboard.
We visited with Empress Bee and her travel companion yesterday afternoon in the lobby. Bee hasn't gotten off the ship at all. See, we aren't the only ones who do that!
Life is good on the high seas, y'all. WYWH!
