Day at Sea

Our last day at sea was extremely relaxing. I think I read an entire book that day, start to finish - with that said, I don't have too many pictures from this day. We took another bartending class, and we had a "graduation" ceremony from bartending school for everyone who participated in all the events. I actually skipped the class on our second day at sea before arriving in Istanbul, but the ship's party coordinator (best job ever...) let me graduate since I participated in so many other on-ship events. We all even wore caps and gowns for the ceremony! ;)

Bo didn't end up behind the bar like last time, but they still put him to work. He's got some mad bartending skills!

We made three new drinks - two of which I didn't really like. We are suspicious that they just threw together drink recipes based on whatever leftover ingredients they had on the ship that day ;)  I don't think they'll end up on the drink menu. Good thing my husband will eat or drink anything, so they didn't go to waste.

all of the bartending graduates!

Dinner that evening was also the last formal night, so we got all dressed up and enjoyed our final dinner aboard the ship.

We also attended the last pub crawl that night. Similar to our flip cup experience a few nights earlier, we had to teach many people the art of beer pong. This was an epic failure and we ended up calling the game early because so many people kept missing the cups that very few of us were drinking. Which sort of defeats the purpose of a drinking game ;)

As sad as we were that the cruise was coming to an end, I am currently happy to be almost through the 2,000+ pictures I took on this trip!


  1. I had fun looking at all your great photos from this trip :) I may need to take a Mediterranean cruise too! And I love the dress you wore to the formal night!

    1. Thanks so much!! I think you should go on a cruise too ;) I already want to go back!

  2. Wow! I love how you got to do so many fun and exciting activities! It looks like you had a great time :) I especially like how you were teaching the "art of beer pong"


I love hearing from you! Thanks for commenting :)
