Curious how all that glass will handle the long days

Did the Boston/Florida Repo in the Cabin when got in Caribbean had keep Curtains closed most the day, AirCon couldn't keep up, room got Really Hot and could burn your hands just touching the glass. Closed, they are Dark just little light over top/bottom getting threw. Had issue in Master Bedroom, lot of banging behind wall. During first 4 Sea Days out Boston at nite the waves were high, ship was rocking, got so loud almost slept in other bedroom...

heading to the solarium now

Does Chops offer omelets?  Made to order Omelets and Eggs Benedict are good in the Windjammer if they still offer them now.

That could be something they did away with because there was always a line of people at those stations.

Yes they did omelets I’ll let you know about the eggs Benedict.

Serenade was our first suite experience.  Loved breakfast in Chops, especially sitting next to the window and looking at the water.

 

One thing that I didn't like about Serenade was that it was not symmetrical.  Elevators on port side, entrance to Schooner/Chops/Giovannis on starboard side, MDR entrance on port side.  I was already used to the Freedom and Oasis class ships.  My engineering brain struggled with the non-symmetry.

Lunch was at Windjammer. First time I there so far. One thing I’ll say is the food is fresher and mire flavorful than what I remember. The brisket was fantastic. 
 

@Ocean Boy First pizza I’ve seen was in the windjammer. It is thin crust and pretty good. I’ll check out park cafe later and let you know what I find.

I’m in a nearly deserted Crown and Castle enjoying my first Stongbow of the cruise.

I’ll probably try losing a little more money in the casino here in a few. 
 

I only lost $30 this morning when I went in to take those earlier pics. I need to lose a little more I think.

Well no pizza at park cafe during lunch while Windjammer was open. I’ll check later.

Weather got pretty dodgy but has improved a little. Sadly tomorrow is forecast for showers.

Decent 4 piece. This afternoon was the first set I’ve listened to so far. I’ll be back.

I agree, with less people on board, I think windjammer has been able to do a better job of maintaining quality.  I enjoyed meals there this past cruise, when normally it was just like a pit stop with kids.
