The Food and Wine
Seated lunches and suppers. Five course dinners that included an amuse bouche and sorbet between courses. Options at every meal, including basics like caesar salad and salmon, should you tire of richer fare like lobster creme brulee, beef carpaccio, or crab wontons with avocado. A seating in the Chef’s Table restaurant is an intimate affair open to all by reservation. Excellent local wines are poured with lunch and dinner. And the captain’s dinner is a feast!
The cruise line does much to encourage people to mix and connect, including entertainment in its big, luxurious lounge each night. Local acts, an onboard musician, a friendly bartender, and a convivial cruise manager are all part of the magic that forms lasting bonds and friendships. Sharing such memorable experiences on excursions, hikes, and city outings only adds to it.
The Hospitality and Service
Water bottles handed to us as we stepped off the ship for our land excursions. Hot towels and hot, sweet tea handed to us as we walked back onto the ship after an afternoon of sightseeing. Turndown service at night, so after a luxurious, dinner and dancing, we returned to find chocolates on our pillows and all our odds and ends tidied up for us.
