Ruby Princess 2013: Day 7 & 8- Another Sea Day and Fort Lauderdale Mansions

Day 7

On the last 2 days, the boat was making its way back to our starting port in Fort Lauderdale. When we went to breakfast Saturday, there was a Chocolate station. Mom got mad at me for eating chocolate everything for breakfast:

Since it was our last day, I walked around the ship and took some more random photos including the jazz bar and a dessert cafe (which you didn’t have to pay additional for).

Mid-day the kitchen staff held a hilarious cooking show and then took us on a tour of one of the kitchens. It is so incredibly spotless!

At the end of the tour there were more food carvings!

I also bought the Princess cookbook and got it signed by the head chef!

The rest of the day was spent losing in bingo and watching David Cats teach us some simple magic tricks. For dinner I had a beautiful seafood salad thing, a light watermelon and goat cheese salad, chilled pumpkin and curry soup, a New York strip sirloin and a slice of apple pie.

After dinner entertainment was another show of singing and dancing.

Day 8

On day 8 it was time to disembark from the cruise. We had way too much time to kill before our 9pm flight so we did a water tour of some of the multi-million dollar (averaging $15 million) mansions along Port Everglades. What’s crazy is that the yachts in the waters were worth 10 times more.

We ate lunch at the Los Amos art festival. There was amazing photographs, paintings and original creations to see in hundreds of booths. We weren’t really allowed to take photos for copyright reasons. So here is a photo of my BBQ pork sandwich, a mobile giraffe thing and a cycle party.

Anyways, the rest of our day was spent waiting a billion hours at the airport and our journey came to an end. I have to say I have enjoyed my first time on a cruise. Food is delicious. Service is exquisite and the environment is full of friendly cheerful people. Can’t wait to travel the world again soon!
