Yes - the menus were delivered to ALL cabins a day before the event. If we hadn't had another commitment, we would have gone to this luncheon. It sounded so much better than the one we did.

Were the wines served in the appropriate Riedel crystal? According to the Riedel web site, each of the 5 wines should have been in its own unique glass.

You are aware that this is just a marketing gimmick to sell more glasses, aren't you?
