As you can see by the itinerary, we’re at sea. Man, we needed this day of nothing. Sure there’s things to do I suppose but we don’t want to do anything other than eat, drink and nap.
Eating. Wow, today they did a brunch buffet in the main dining room. It was done so well with ice, melon and bread sculptures. Exquisite. They had the typical omelet and waffle stations. What a spread! It’s always about the food for me, isn’t it? Here’s lotsa photos of this spectacular buffet. It was all so pretty, I almost hated messing it up.

Perhaps later we’ll eat again and see a show. Maybe we’ll even hit the casino and/or the pool. I’m blogging today’s entry while Jim is napping (I finished mine).
The cabin doors are “heavy” and have a self closing mechanism (the norm). The problem is that they will slam if you let go of them. On day 6 or so, the cabin next to us hasn’t figured this out and continually lets the door slam. That’s what ended my nap.
Specialty restaurant 3 of 3, Murano, a French restaurant, was the “fanciest” of the 3 restaurants we’ve dined in. Unfortunately, the menu featured a lot of animals I’m not particularly fond of munching on. No worries, there were still delicious selections to be had.
Our main course was Chateaubriand for two. This was carved/served tableside. Jim also wanted lobster so we ordered an additional entrée. I’m not a lobster fan but I do enjoy lobster bisque and some other lobster dishes. I think it’s just that I don’t like lobster and drawn butter? Anyway, the lobster was also prepared tableside with fresh ingredients in a frying pan before our eyes. Impressive. It was pretty good.
Some funny things about the Murano:
Above: Cold potato and leek soup. It was served with a tiny demitasse-ish spoon and in something the size of a tea-light candle holder. Serving strange foods in weird ways makes it eccentric and costs more… I’m sure of it.
Tonight’s show was amazing. Jugglers, hula-hoop tricks, silks, acrobats, dancing, aerial stuff, this show had it all and they were all so very good. No photos or video were allowed.
