M met with Stewart at 11.00 am to help him label his photographs. We went for lunch just after 1 pm and then M continued to assist Stewart. M just managed to catch the last two songs of "Katy goes Judy Garland" which had started in the Scotts Bar at 3.30 pm. At 4.30 we went to watch the last "Eggies" - which will never be the same again as Ross is getting off. We only ever went to listen to him mispronounce the questions. M will never forget "He Brides" for the "Hebrides Islands"!
We met our friend's in Scott's Bar to finish off the farewell nibbles, say out goodbyes and exchange email addresses etc, before going down to dinner for the last time on this cruise.
Tonight's show was the winner of the passenger vote. We had voted to see the Pantomime again as it was hilarious. However it wasn't the panto (probably because the dancers weren't in it!). We were treated to a second performance of "Love is All Around". After the show we went to the Scott's Bar for the Farewell Party which featured lots of dancing songs performed by the onboard vocalists.
This has been an interesting trip - the highlight being our visit to the Falkland Islands and Crusing the Chilean Fjords. A more apt title for this cruise would be "South American Experience" rather than "South American Treasures" as we didn't see too many "Treasures". We enjoyed it nevertheless.
