What’s English bacon?

It is the real stuff! None of that streaky fatty stuff.

No english bacon in lido this morning. I asked at the usual station and got blanked.

 

Try asking for back bacon or Canadian back bacon.  I believe that's what they call it on HAL.  Same thing though 🙂

I usually get it at the station labelled 'English Breakfast'. It has quirky things like grilled tomato, fried bread, mushrooms, bangers, and baked beans. This time the station is missing!

Not just Brexit but also Halexit.😁

That's a daily service to the Bahamas, Freeport I think.  It's been around for several years.  It used to dock at the pier right next to the 17th street bridge but I think has changed terminals recently.  (Appears to be back to terminal 1)

It was there in February. Did you look on both sides of the buffet?

Thanks to Dan for organising.

Cabin steward says that they have not received any chocolates from supplier. He did not understand the nuance when I asked if any had been ordered! 🙄

I remember chocolate mice from childhood, but chocolate snails? 

I may leave a note at H.D's desk for clarification.

Yeah, that's the Spanish fast cat ferry Jaume 1, operated by Balearia Caribbean, 600 pax. four times weekly to Freeport and back. The one-way trip takes four hours

Max; you've gotta try a "Broodje Kroket" at the Grand Dutch Cafe, excellent for  a Dutch-Irish lunch 😉

Have you checked the breakfast menu for the MDR? It might offer an English breakfast. I remember seeing it in Club Orange in January, so maybe you have to pay $50 per day to get a proper "fry up."
