Congrats on the win. A few years ago I won the Win a Cruise on the machine do they have those?

How are the straws I think I'll bring some.

 


Oh cool. We haven’t seen that one yet. The straws are okay but when having frozen drinks unless you drink them really fast they tend to break.

I assume they consider the pineapple itself extra.

Kind of confused...why would it be cheaper with the drink package and why is it listed like that?

Even $12 for the drink it’s covered in the package. Now drinks served in special souvenir glasses are extra.C9BABBA9-8D92-4BB0-AD31-703CBB93007A.thumb.jpeg.b3f5db93d67991764a7db5417288d056.jpeg


Yea so even if you have the drink package you still have to pay for it since it’s a special drink. So if you have the drink package it is just $9 plus tips.

Last night was Wonderland which was a very interesting experience for us especially my sister with her being vegetarian. All in all it was pretty good but some of the vegetarian items were really weird and my sister wasn’t a fan of some of them. But was a cool experience and of course the desserts were the best part.

A little video about painting your menu to have it  show the menu. Very cool.

This is the vegetables in the garden for my sister. Was good but some of the veggies weren’t her favorites. But the avocado creme thing on the bottom was tasty.

Potted shrimp. Was alright, nothing fantastic.

Liquid Lobster. Fabulous 🙂

The Bird’s Nest. Probably our favorite. So good and cool presentation.

Tomato Water for my sister, which was too weird for her. And Crab Cone for me. Liked the crab it was good.

Tuna and Sorbet. Very good, my favorite appetizer. Lime sorbet on top, tuna ceviche underneath it. Very good.

Liquid Mushroom. Not sure why they called it risotto, nothing about it resembles risotto and my sister didn’t care for it as it was just far too F43FEC08-34B7-4BF5-951E-9A11A23373EF.thumb.jpeg.392e717cef70dac1df5462ed4857e4f0.jpeg

Halibut main course. Very good.

They were able to do an actual mushroom risotto for my sister’s main dish but it again was presented a little different but she said that it was really good. But she didn’t eat a lot of the vegetables as they weren’t her favorite ones.

Mystical Mushroom. My favorite dessert. So good and cute. Also got the World.

All in all, am glad that we tried it. For sure need to be pretty open to trying new things and be adventurous.

This is the same table we had a couple of weeks ago.  Wonderland was probably one and done for us.  Was an interesting experience and we enjoyed the unique presentation, but much of the food taste was lacking.  I enjoyed watching the Mad Hatter do his schtick as new guests arrived.  He's got the Johnny Depp thing down pat.

How is the weather? How are the seas? 
 

thanks for the photos and review. 
 

 

Was really warm yesterday when we were in St. Kitts but today I think it is a little cooler. In St. Thomas today. 

 

The sea was really rough the day before yesterday and a little bit rough yesterday after we left St. Kitts. Other days it has been good. Supposed to see Hiro tonight so hopefully the seas aren’t too rough.

So yesterday was St, Kitts,. We did the early Scenic Railway. We liked it because it was nice and relaxing and you can see a good amount of the island. Free drinks as well 😉

 

Had some room service breakfast and then got off the ship and did the excursion., Came back around 11:30 so we did a little bit of shopping then headed back to the ship for lunch in the Windjammer which was great. It had a good amount of Indian food which made my sister really happy., We played more games and did some trivia activities, but didn’t win :(.

 

Then we headed back to the Windjamer later for a relaxing dinner. And they had a crepe station 🙂

My sister tried a mudslide for the first time. She wasn’t a fan though. But it does look cool.

So the above is vegetarian Indian triangle things, forgot what they were called. But the waiter brought them for my sister in addition to the appetizer that she ordered and they were pretty good.

This was her appetizer. An eggplant and olive tartar like thing with bread and hummus on the bottom,. She said that it was delicious.

I had the Seafood Vol Au Vent (Spelling not accurate 🙂 ). Very tasty.

And I had to have the Chocolate Soufflé for dessert. A great nine in the MDR 🙂

What beers ore currently on tap in the Copper & Kettle?


I don’t drink beer so didn’t know this but we ended up stopping in there today because they have nice chairs for playing games. And I took a pic of the beer menu.

Our last sea day 😞. It always seems to go by so fast. Tomorrow is CoCo Cay. 
 

Spent the day playing games, doing bingo, etc. Didn’t win anymore though. We were supposed to watch Hiro yesterday but it was rescheduled again because of rough seas to tomorrow but based on how rocky it has been today, we aren’t holding our breaths that it will be able to be done. 
 

we were supposed to today see Flight but this also had to be rescheduled for tomorrow due to rough seas as well. 
 

Went to Jaime’s for lunch again and it was again fantastic. Here are some pics of new food that we had. D430CE05-886E-4D69-82DE-0BA169DC1B41.thumb.jpeg.0b49de4b0b7fdebc88955d976d82a2d9.jpeg

 

Burrata appetizer. So good.

Lasagna for me and My sister had the Penna Pomodoro again as it was so good. 
 

also got some polenta fries to try. Pretty good.

Gotta go bottles/cans here to get anything halfway decent. You might find a Guiness tap.

Menu pic is pretty  standard for all ships' pubs, but less so at other bars.
