November 19~20, 2012 (Monday and Tuesday)
It was good that we had two sea days to recover from our intense land tours of the previous ports. We definitely needed to rest up and not have to use our feet that much while on the ship. Since we were in Cairo the day before, we were not able to have our Sunday service and that was why we scheduled a morning fellowship time on Monday. Not only to have a time to study the words of God but also to reflect on our visits to the Holy Land. It seems to make everything alive now that we have been to the places so often mentioned in the Bible.
Last dinner at the Grand Pacific. We planned to have dinner at Le Bistro the next evening.
NCL Chocolate Buffet
Again, as suite guests, we were taken to the chocolate buffet by our concierge Carlos through the back door before it was opened to all other guests. We were able to take pictures and sampled all the wonderful creations. Unfortunately, with my new friend--diabetes, I was able to only try a couple of the 'no sugar added' items. What a drag!
It was stormy and rainy outside, the only night that we had a little bit of waves. But inside our cabin, a cute towel dog was waiting for us.
Passing through the tip of Sicily again the next morning.
We also got our laundry back, ironed and folded.
Dinner at Le Bistro. It was OK, not particularly great.
the famous cream of mushroom soup. A little too salty for my taste.
appetizer-four cones of whatever
Great escargot! Now they don't serve this at the main restaurant any more.
Yes, creme brulee. Again, they do not offer this dessert in the main restaurants any more. Neither was shrimp cocktail.
Packing to leave the ship was quite a task. With the extra items that we bought along the way made it challenging but I managed to finish before the dead line and had our luggage outside the door for pick-up.
