We had a lot of fun in the last 2 days of the cruise! After we left Charleston, we had a sailaway party on the deck and a July 4 barbecue. Good music, good friends and a surprise ritual that Ray initiated last cruise (and I didn’t know about) that at the end of the world cruise the “worldies” as he calls them, jump into the pool with their clothes on. Ray went first, and of course I had to do it. Not Norm, though, he took the pictures. I am in the back in the red shirt! This didn’t happen on the last trip, I guess because we didn’t have Ray as our cruise director. Or maybe because we returned in January that time!
Our last sea day, July 5, we had a mimosa party and there were hugs and tears as Ray read some memories some of us submitted and we got to see the video that fellow passenger Rob Fromm created for us. Will share that with everyone when we get home. Here are some photos of our celebrations.
As the sun set on our 180th night, we remembered how lucky we are to have experienced our second trip around the world. The learning, friendships, culture, fun, food and so much more has enriched us beyond measure. We can hardly wait to do it again.
Thank you, Insignia. We will never forget our adventures.
