2015 Mexican Riviera Cruise – Day 9

The final two days of the cruise were “sea days” (meaning that we were sailing) as we traveled back to Long Beach (called Los Angeles by Princess Cruise). With no planned excursions, our days were much more leisurely. We watched some different programs on the ship including Bob, the cruise director, sharing his story. Here’s a Zumba class.

After an early lunch on Thursday, we watched the movie “Now You See Me” outside up on the top deck. I (Tim) had seen it a few years ago but I couldn’t remember the final twist in plot at the end. Jeri hadn’t seen it. So we both enjoyed watching it.

Thursday was the second of the two formal nights. So we enjoyed dressing up for a nice meal. Here we are in our room.

On our way to the restaurant, they were taking pictures of baby. How cute! (Sorry for the blurry photo.)

The dessert (as always) was fantastic! From the menu: Chocolate Pistachio Dome with Almond and Pistachio Nougatine. Featuring a moist almond cake, the rich Sicilian pistachio crème brulée is encased in a light bittersweet chocolate mousse that sits atop an almond pistachio crunchy nougatine, and glazed in a milk chocolate glacage.

After dinner, we saw the show “Magic To Do” in the Princess Theater. The show was entertaining…mostly song and dance with some great visual effects plus some magic and illusions. Sometimes people (or even an “elephant”) would magically disappear or magically appear. We sat in the back row.

After the show, we dashed back to the Explorers Lounge. Although the 9:00 PM show would begin in just minutes, we were able to find good seats. Rollin’ Jay Moore had another funny show that had us laughing a lot.

As a side note, a retired couple sat at a table very close to ours at supper. The wife asked if we were newlyweds. When we told them that we were celebrating our 30th anniversary, the husband said that we must have gotten married when we were in kindergarten. We were flattered!
