Yes, they are going to build a large entertainment area with parks and a music concert venue. Also a ship embarkation building when the old building was. The plans look nice and will be a big plus for that stop. 

Cool, I look forward to seeing its progress.

I know you said the WJ wasn't open on one night for dinner and for lunch when in Coco Cay but has the WJ been open other nights for dinner at all?

It had been closed for dinner all cruise long.

Did you notice if they had a good variety of sports on the TVs at Playmakers?  (baseball, Olympics, etc)

Both sets of TVs I could see had the same thing on. Something European I'm thinking maybe rugby.

 

I'll take a look at them again tonight I suspect I will be enjoying another bloody mary at some point.

Random observation, for a ship this empty it is hard to find a quiet nook to sit and play a game.

 

We had to leave the library because they are doing covid testing there.

 

Moved over to the star lounge and they are now doing a shopping seminar. 


What about the Viking Crown Lounge? That's usually quiet during the daytime.

Can you just get Sushi Rolls in Izumi Hibachi, or do you have to have the experience?

Yes you can and you can get a $35 credit with the dining plan

Crapped out again and then tried quick hits again which was spectacularly crappy. Done for now I'll do some more after dinner 

 

So in all my trips this has been one of the worse runs of luck I've ever encountered. Most of my losses are from playing back winnings, but I cant get anything to strike at all. My biggest win this week was $70. 

 

Alas that's the way it goes sometimes.

Just checked, I saw basketball (Olympics) baseball, soccer, and what I presume to be rugby (something European I do t really know what).

Bon Appetit...🍷

Thank you. M and I definitely have different eating patterns this late dining is killing me. Eighteen minutes to go and I could eat my own hand right now.

I'm sure the wait will be worth it. 🙂

Dinner tonight was better than last time - I stayed away from the filet M did not and there is just no nice way to put it, it is not good quality steak at all. Same issue for her last night at izumi.

 

I ordered the crab cake and black pepper bacon to start.

 

For my main I ordered the grilled branzino.

 

Finally for dessert I got the key lime meringue.

 

Everything was good and the service was truly a 10/10. I will have some further thoughts on chops when I wrap up my review after the cruise.

Good Luck!

Thanks, unfortunately it wasn't my turn to do good this trip. The good news is M and I have helped rccg get back on their feet and should be turning a profit again real soon.😃
