After St. Maarten, Home Sweet Home

Well, the 2019 cruise is nearly done. Two days and we'll be back into Fort Lauderdale . It's amazing that we've been on the Reflection twice and I still have many areas that I've never been on. Well, we'll have the chance to find these areas because we've already arranged for next year's cruise on the Reflection. 

For the next two days we or should I say me will be sitting here, looking at the sea and just watching people running past me. Tonight will be the second fancy night, maybe not as fancy but still great. We've enjoyed having our dinners in the Opus Restaurant. Our waiters were,

We rarely saw of Madalina because Mary Lou & I drink but we saw Valentin & Riki every night.

Valentin was a wonderful waiter that was easy to speak with & he made sure that we were satisfied while we were there. I spoke to him about how long he has been working for Celebrity and he said 6 years but after this time he plans on taking his family to Canada hopefully living in Toronto. Here's a photo with him & Mary Lou.

Riki, the assistant waiter would be at our table quickly when we needed more water and explaining the three types of butter they had on the table each night and each night they were different. I think I ate more bread & breadsticks because I wanted to try each and every different types of butters.

Did you notice Riki's smile. Well it was like that throughout the night.


Our final day was resting and putting all of the materials to be put into our luggage because it had to placed outside of our door earlier because we paid a little extra to have our luggage taken to the airport and we wouldn't see the luggage until we arrive in Detroit. Much easier especially for me.

It looks like God was saying to us, see, I took care of you and your cruise was everything that you asked of me. Which he did. What a cruise.

Our last dinner was wonderful. Here are a couple photos of the Opus Restaurant.

After enjoying a wonderful dinner Valentin asked what we wanted for dessert but he we said anything he said I know what you both would like. So I said OK, you bring us what you think we would like and this was what he brought to us.

                                     and it was fantastic.

After before we left the Opus, I gave Valentin & Riki an envelope of thanks for they gave us a wonderful dinner every night. They thanked me & Mary Lou and we left.

That's our 2019 Caribbean Cruise on the Celebrity Reflection. One thing I always put in my photo book at the end and it's this.

Thank you friends for going along our cruise. See you next year when we leave for our 2020  11 day Caribbean Cruise.
See ya.
