Pit stop at Taste and a chance to collect ourselves after the boarding-day chaos.





I heard someone talking about a bar with beer on this ship - hope to find it before the week's over.

Can't wait for this review I followed along with your last one after we booked escape for last year unfortunately the ship was then chartered and we ended up back on Getaway instead. But now booked up for escape again a while to wait Jan 2019 but I'm sure your review will get me counting down the days

I'm out of training - or I don't realize I'm on a ship yet. I was just served food and instinctually started eating.

Popcorn shrimp (minus two or three)...



Tuna salad sandwich...
