Mom came down to the Colonnade Restaurant with me for breakfast. We indulged in chocolate chip pancakes, scrambled eggs and fruit.
It was a leisurely day so we met up for lunch in the Restaurant 1 and had fantastic Coconut Crusted Chicken Burgers with roasted potatoes and coleslaw, followed by ice cream for dessert.
We remained reading and sunning some more before dinner with an eclectic group from Los Angeles, England and Canada.
Mom enjoyed a main course of Grilled Jumbo Shrimp with tamarind glaze, warm vegetable julienne and glass noodle salsa. For me it was a Baked Spinach Ricotta Cheese Tian. It was very good and I was glad the portion was small so I could enjoy the fantastic dessert – a Hot Chocolate Soufflé with Bailey’s Cream.
The sun was strong in the morning and I was ready to enjoy it after a breakfast of a melon yogurt smoothie and Belgium Waffles. I was at the pool by 11:00 and swam and relaxed until 1:00, when I met Mom for what was our favorite lunch of the cruise.
I had enough sun for the day and we went to the room and relaxed with the movie JOBS with Ashton Kutcher. It was one of many films available to us in our cabin at all times.
We were invited to dine with Illusionist Jonathan Neal, who we had watched perform the previous night.
For me, the opportunity to relax on a lounge chair and look out at the water (with a cocktail in hand) was just wonderful and I got to do that more than I expected on this trip. I was more relaxed than I had been in years when we arrived back in Fort Lauderdale.
Thanks again to Seabourn Cruise Line for a fantastic voyage. It will be hard for any other cruise to compete with the experience I had.
