Knowing that we had to vacate our cabin shortly after 6:00 AM, we experienced a poor night of sleep. Afraid of oversleeping, we were up several times during the night, simply to check the time.
In any case we were ready to go shortly after 5:30 and went up to the Buffet for some coffee. We had been told to expect our call to disembark by 7:00 AM and were ready 15 minutes before that time.
The efficiency of Princess Cruise Line was on display as we were on shore, through customs, and in the shuttle van to our hotel shortly after 7:00 AM.
It was too early to check in at our hotel so we stored our luggage in a room, sipped coffee in the dining area, and then took a walk to find a good place for breakfast.
A short walk from the hotel we located a really nice Diner and enjoyed a fine breakfast.
After that, we jumped on to a “Wave & Ride” Trolley, where we took a ride all over this end of the city for a cost of $3.00 per person.
By the time we returned to the hotel, our rooms were ready and we were soon settled in. A nap was definitely in order. Alas, it was not to be, but I’ll bet we will sleep good tonight.
The four of us walked down the street to a great seafood restaurant called “Kelly’s Landing” where we spent the next hour and a half enjoying a fantastic meal. Everything from the onion rings, to the lobster mac & cheese, creamy clam chowder, oyster po’ boy, to the awesome crab cakes, was some of the best we have ever eaten.
We shopped a bit on the way back to the hotel, and then I went to the computer room to check us in for our flight tomorrow, and printed out our boarding passes.
We’ll be home soon.
Life is Good!
