Galveston Tomorrow

It’s my last day for this cruise, and though sunny it is cool. We have a nippy wind and the waves are kicking up. The basketball court is just about empty.

I haven’t heard the weather forecast, but barf bags are hung next to all the elevators. If I see someone grab one, I take the stairs.

Gambling is going strong.

I wonder if the Rolls in the Rolls Royce Bar works as a motivator.

No matter, on Ecstasy, gamblers look as if they’re having fun as opposed to some of the more serious ships I’ve sailed.

Tonight will be my last chance to dance with the waiters.

On this entire ship, there are not enough drinks with umbrellas to get that done. It may seem silly to me, but not to about 50% of the diners.img_3074.JPG

So tomorrow around 9 AM it will be goodbye to Ecstasy.img_3083.JPG

It’s been a great trip and the 4 and 5 days out of Galveston at Carnival prices are a huge draw.

A reminder if you take this cruise and are looking for the air conditioning control it’s above you. The cabins have no thermostatically controlled air conditioning. Instead, there’s a vent in the ceiling with a slide that can be turned from full on to off. The heat is mostly controlled by which side of the ship is in the sun. Much more modern is the flat panel TV with a bunch of channels including ABC, CBS, NBC and the local Fox station. They all seem to come out of Denver. Three movies are complementary, all fairly new, including one for kids. CNN is the fundamental news offering. Is there nothing happening in the world besides primaries? Ah well, only nine more months to go.

Thanks for reading this blog. I’m heading home.
