Heading into Breakaway Theater...

I always try to take the row directly in front of the Haven reserved section, as it has a great unobstructed view down the aisle to the stage.

After permanently burning out my retinas, we’re heading to Savor for dinner.

 

Atrium is playing Memories, from Cats...

...which causes our group to quickly jog through.

For the record, I’m the guy that’s wearing shorts on “Dress Up Or Not” night. Sorry.

Can you take a picture of the far left machine at the casino bar? I am curious if it is still different from all of the other ones up there. TIA!

 

 

The fact your request made me laugh, I obliged. No idea if this answers your question, but I can confirm it’s no Heidi...

To the person that asked about specialty dining menus, I will remember to post them when we visit Cagney’s, Teppanyaki, and La Cucina. I’m fairly certain they’re the old (pre-Bliss) menus, which are readily available elsewhere.

I respect it. Someone has to fulfill the "Or Not" portion of the evening.

 

The photo with the shadows is great but the one before it at the railing is incredible. Are you sure you didn't paint that?

The lighting was amazing... wicked-bright from the water with much of it reflecting back off the ship. It felt like we were sailing on the sun.

I was stood out on my balcony and thought - this is definitely the "land of the midnight sun"

 

You guys eat late!!! But I guess Talinn tomorrow is a fairly relaxed stop ...... But next the St Petersburg Mayhem!!!!

Wow those pictures are great. They almost look photoshopped for a magazine.

That’s probably it for the night. Tomorrow is another tour day with Alla, this time in Tallinn, Estonia.

 

As much as I love sea days, I think we all took advantage of the downtime to prep for the crazy lineup that follows. We have five tours in the next five days, and we’re all psyched to get back to exploring the region.

Miss you, mom. I hope you’re enjoying the trip from afar.

 

Thanks to everyone else that’s followed along.

Thank you, once again, for taking us with you. You are an amazing storyteller and I would be totally embarrassed to say how often I check this thread. A big congratulations to your dad on his birthday milestone and well wishes for your mom's healing.

I’m laughing because we booked bliss and I was re-reading your TA live and there was mention of Sue’s favorite song from Cats, “piano man.” So did she think memories was billy Joel? :)

Thanks for sharing your German tour. I spent 2 weeks in the area and spent time on Warnemunde's beach a couple of years ago. So much more to see than what your tour covered. But lovely little Warnemunde and Rostock's Hansa buildings made the memories flood back. Thank you~

Thanks! Disappointed but oh well.....used to be a Super Star machine instead of a Game King. Really appreciate the time!

Our first morning in the Garden Cafe for breakfast, and it’s because there aren’t waffles or pancakes down in Moderno (and kids have voiced complaints to us).

 

17-year old’s iron stomach...

It’s crowded, but still found a table for 5 in the back section.

The place just got crazy. On our way out, the omelette station had a line 11 deep. The quiet buffet in Moderno is such a better option (for me).

In case I didn’t post it earlier, here’s the Lavazza atrium menu. I’m surprised it didn’t transition to Starbucks like it did on the Escape).
