The best time

The best time


We’ve had the most amazing cruise and have enjoyed every minute of it.  So it was sad to say goodbye to those friends on board this morning, even though we hope to see some of them again before too long.


Today we arrived in Stockholm and are back on dry land overnight.


We couldn’t believe our luck with the weather during the last two weeks.  I took this photograph on our way for pre dinner drinks as we left Tallinn yesterday evening.  That sky!


We have had such fun with our friends, in the company of a really fantastic crew.  When we turned up at dinner one evening and commented that we rather liked the thin flatbreads they serve in that particular restaurant, look what happened when we next went there.


We have been truly and utterly spoiled.  I had only to step into the lounge to find someone making a Hendricks G & T for me, with a cucumber garnish of course, and my Hero’s negroni wasn’t far behind.


We have eaten extraordinarily well and my favourite Alaskan King Crab legs tasted as good as I remembered.


I’ve managed to resist the constant temptation to help myself to cookies and muffins.


but sadly, never managed to resist dessert or petits fours


But all good things come to an end, and as we sat enjoying our last dinner on board this time,  we felt very thankful indeed.


Not only did we win the last Trivia of the cruise, the perfect score gained us a bonus prize.


In addition to the points we normally win, we each won a million dollars!!
