The Voyage Conclusion

Day 11 – Thursday January 22, 2015 --- SEA Watch

Today we moved Roseway from our anchorage to the cruise ship dock at 09:00, after a breakfast of oatmeal and fruit. After breakfast, we practiced performing our assigned poems for the highly anticipated Luther College Poetry Slam! taking place tonight after muster. At roughly 10:00, Luther students went to El Morro fort and enjoyed the site despite the influx of cruise tourist. Luther students then split off into separate groups to enjoy lunch around Old San Juan, tasting local cuisine such as curried goat and mofongo. Students happily took full advantage of a free afternoon exploring the city. After our day on the town, everyone met back at the ship for a mouthwatering dinner of pulled pork made by the highly talented Dani. Today was our last full day of this trip. It was a very bittersweet day. We are all excited to be home again, but we will all be leaving something great. The people we have met, and the relationships we have made here will always be remembered. As fun as this trip has been, with everything we have done, and everywhere we have been, some of the best memories may just be those we made with each other and the crew of the Roseway. Thanks to everyone for being a part of this great experience.
