We are awake and up long before the alarm goes off. No desire for breakfast, but Lynn grabs a coffee in the buffet.
We arrive at the gathering place for wheelchair assist departure 20 minutes before our scheduled time exactly as instructed. I would have been earlier, but getting an elevator was impossible. I finally carried my small suitcase down the 5 flights of stairs.
I was the first passenger called when a "pusher" arrived. A crew member that volunteers for helping push wheelchairs. I am whisked away towards the terminal. At the elevator in the terminal I am handed off to a dockside worker. After a short wait for the elevator we are on our way.
Facial recognition for passport inspection. We soon find our luggage. There is a several minute wait for a porter. Soon we are on the shuttle bus to the parking lot. The driver collects our car tag and his computer tells him exactly where in the lot the car is parked.
Probably within 25 minutes of walking down the stairs I am sitting in my car setting "home" as my destination on my GPS. This is good as we have concert tickets at Blue Bamboo, one of our favorite venues in Orlando this afternoon.
The drive home is easy. I open the garage door a minute before noon. Time to unpack, start the laundry, shower and head to the concert. The conclusion of another great week at sea. All that is left is to book another cruise to St Marten so I can repay Nick the $10 he loaned me. Isn't that reason enough for another cruise?
