Photo Review April/May 2015: Disney, Eclipse TA, London

Recommended Posts

We asked if they could do the Chatreaubriand for one and they agreed.

 

Here is Terry's but they said it was more for 1 1/2 than 1!

 

Note - this was ordered medium well - he like it and ate most of it anyway.

As much as I love cheese, I just couldn't find room for it. They were nice enough to bring me the cheese cart for a photo.

Terry's chocolate dessert was very good, but again so rich it was hard to take more than a few bites.

I had the grand marnier souffle and have to say, it was a total miss for me. All i tasted was a lot of eggy sponge with strong alcohol. The whole thing collapsed down to almost one spoonful the moment I tried to take the first bite. I've had lots of souffles and know they are supposed to be light, but this was just like whipped egg whites without a stabilizing agent to keep them together.

Our friends had called ahead to special order crepe suzette which are also prepared table side. These looked very good!

Dinner was overall a good experience and I enjoyed spending time with Karen and Les. After dinner we went back to our room and got undressed so I could breathe. I ate too much....... again.

Nevermind about the question I asked. My computer did not reload correctly and you have added to your review since I last saw a view from the ship to an unknown town. I now see the review to the photos.

 

Loving the review and photos! ;)

We went to Cafe Brazil in Bilbao also. We had tapas and I had some local beer. The olives were delicious!

Wed, May 5 - Le Havre and our last full day of cruising.

 

We had reserved a rental car with Enterprise today. No other plans that that.

 

Picture as we got off the ship and started walking:

I only remember a few words of French and they only knew a little English, but we got it done. I had done my research and knew that cars in Europe seldom have automatic transmissions, but that was OK, I am married to an awesome car guy who has probably driven or raced almost anything on wheels (in his younger days).

 

So.... our car!

 

Being a bit paranoid, I took photos of the car including the chipped hubcap in case it came back later. They have an interesting little guide. Its a rectangle a few inches long with a round circle cut out of the middle. Any scratches or damage larger than the circle, we pay if they are on the sides, hood, trunk or top. Anything on the bumpers bigger than the rectangle in damage - we pay. Very generous compared to the US companies.

I had purchased a used Garmin on Ebay with Europe maps so we entered the town of Hornfleur and headed out. I really don't like heights so of course we had to go over this bridge. It even cost us over 5 Euros each way.

So we got there, drove around in circles a few times until we figured out the place and found parking a bit of a walk away from the center. Then took some more fumbling to figure out the parking system and how to pay the meter.

 

But we did it and got to the river and found the docks.

So the rental car, the driving and the parking were a bit stressful to get started - it was much easier after we had gotten used to it.

 

However now was time to have a good cup of coffee and enjoy the atmosphere. They had a crepe place though and I couldn't resist!

So, back to the car and we tried looking at the map to figure out where to go next but nothing jumped out so we just started driving and did the "I wonder where this road goes" thing.

We did use the GPS to make sure we weren't getting totally lost and actually ended up on the beaches near Normandy.

 

Terry picking up more sea shells for our friend Cathy Phibbs.

We ended up at the beach when Terry wanted to see "where does this street go". We didn't have the GPS turned on until we hit the dead end which was the ocean! Then we turned on the GPS to find out our location. This was actually a lot of fun!

We had fun on the beach but it was cold and windy. So back in the car and we used the GPS to find roads that ran along the ocean. We were cold and it was lunch time so we found a small town AND a parking spot. Of course it was Italian food, but we love pizza!

Again, my French was inadequate and they spoke no English so instead of ordering a cheese pizza with ham, we ended up with one cheese pizza and one ham pizza. Parma ham of course!

 

They were so good!
