Thank you so very much for sharing with us. The Chef's Table looks fantastic. Would you do it again (on a future cruise)?

Was so thrilled to see that they still do Fountains on the Sun! We first saw it on the Norway but it was not on the POA! Awesome! Can't wait to see it again and LAUGH!

Yes! The cost includes champagne before dinner and coffee at Java Cafe after. Professional pictures with the Executive Chef were also included. We will absolutely do this again on future cruises. Hopefully the menu will change from time to time, but this menu has evidently been consistent since the Chef's Table was introduced a few months ago.

DH had never seen it and I refused to tell him anything other than that it's funny. LoL. He was crying from laughing so hard.

I loved both ships and would sail them both again. I didn't have the kids with me on the Dawn so I can't compare from that perspective, but I truly enjoyed both trips and would be happy on either ship!

Sorry, I just saw this! The dress code was "smart casual". Two men chose to wear a sport coat, but only one wore a tie. My DH wore khakis and a nice shirt. I wore a maxi dress. Most of the women wore dressy capris, but there was one person in a gown.
