No one has told us why but rather than leaving at 4, we didn’t until 6. Since we have three days to get to Cartegena it’s no big deal. We had invited the roll call from Cruise Critic to join us for sail away on our big balcony and about 25 folks did…so the late departure meant the party carried on a little longer than expected.
A couple of hours later, Mike and I enjoyed the first great viewing opportunity of our great balcony as we sailed up to and under the Sunshine Skyway bridge.
We had a quick dinner in The Great Outdoors on the opposite end of the ship where we watched the bridge disappear and then went to bed early. After all the traveling and very late nights we needed it.
