Dec 19- Arriving at Fort Lauderdale By 6:00 A.M. on December 19th our ship was tied up at the Port Everglades Cruise Terminal. For 600 passengers, this was their final stop. For the rest of us, we had the entire day to explore Fort Lauderdale, take a tour, or just hang out on the ship. Of course, because this was our first port in the U.S. everyone was required to disembark and go through immigration. The nearby Walgreens seemed to be the most popular place for both passengers and crew to stock up on things they needed.

All aboard by 6:00 P.M. for our final two-day sail to Galveston. The waters of the Gulf of Mexico smoothed out on the last day and everyone scrambled to get in one more swim or finish that tan they had been working on. Saying good-by to special crewmen like waiters and cabin stewards and new-found friends and making promises to stay in touch, some which might not be kept, is probably the hardest part of the end of the cruise. Well- that doesn’t include paying your final bill.
