#201 – A Day at Sea Sailing From Grand Cayman to Ft. Lauderdale

Today was our last day on the 7-night Caribbean cruise with Celebrity Silhouette. We spent the day at sea, sailing from Grand Cayman Island back to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We really didn’t do much… days at sea on a cruise ship are good for just relaxing, I think. Mr. A and I hung out in the Solarium until around lunchtime. We had a reservation at the Lawn Club restaurant where they were serving a special menu of gourmet burgers, salad bar and dessert. The menu didn’t include fries, but our waiter offered to go to another restaurant to get us some fries, so we really appreciated that.

Mr. A had the WTF burger (!) with White Enlish cheddar, Thick cut double smoked pepper bacon, Fried onion strings and WTF sauce. I chose the Deep End burger with Yellowfin tuna and it was delicious.

As the trip came to an end, we spent some time reflecting on our experience. This was the first time that we’d gone on a cruise with other people (beside our family) and it was definitely a different experience – good, but different. We’re so used to traveling (cruising) just the 2 of us or with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law that we really didn’t know what to expect, especially since we didn’t know 4 of the other people beforehand. Mr. A and I are so “in sync” when we travel and always have a great time because we enjoy being together and also know how to give each other space. We’ve reached a point where we don’t really plan what we want to do on a destination and where we’re fine just “going with it”, and somehow we always end up having a great time. So, traveling in a group of 8 where everyone wanted to do “their own thing” was definitely something else.

But, overall, I think it was a nice experience.

We had our last dinner at the best restaurant on the cruise ship – Murano! I love this restaurant, the ambiance, the food and the service was perfect. And, of course, we had way too much to eat but it was all so wonderful…
