Japan Day 8 : Cruisin’

Our 8th day in Japan was spent at sea. We used this time to relax and start packing because we were leaving the ship the following day. Since we had a lot of time we decided to have breakfast at the International Dining Room again. We ordered the Japanese breakfast set and enjoyed our meals while chatting with the friendly dining staff. Most of them were Filipino so my parents had a lot of fun talking to them.

The waiter on the right was actually on board with us during our Alaskan Cruise on the Golden Princess in 2014. He came up to our table to say hello because he remembered our family.

Later that afternoon we went out on my parents’ balcony to watch the sunset

The lighting was magical so Ezra and I took lots of photos. I used one of them for my 23rd self portrait last year.

My parents joined us after a while. My mom spent most of the time sitting because she was really dizzy (the ship was extra shaky that day), but she did get up for a few photos:

Later that evening our dining staff entertained us with their traditional Alaskan Bake Parade.

(I didn’t take that many pictures but Ezra managed to film the whole thing)

After dinner we said goodbye to the wonderful Santa Fe dining staff (they made all our dinners on the ship a delightful experience). Back in our rooms we started the dreary task of packing our bags. We didn’t have a lot of stuff to pack but we had to make sure to leave our bags out in the hallway by midnight so the staff can unload them for us the following day.
