Coastal Kitchen margherita flatbread. Almost perfect, more sauce would be nice

Happy Hour apps have been awesomeness. 

The white puffs on right are the asian tacos from MDR, but with shrimp instead of pork

Up on the right are lobster rolls, below that is avocado bruschetta

Great photos John.

Can you please ask MB

Why don't you dip strawberries in

White or Milk Chocolate?

They are a lot nicer than the awful plain chocolate they dip the strawberries in.

We are docked at International Pier with Enchantment.

She is a bit rusty.

She is looking at that bag like "Hey, where's my money?" or possibly "Mom?"

 

Edit: I also thought we are the only people who put ice in their dog's bowl.

Love the blanket and beanie! I also crochet for charity.

 

Planning a cruise on Royal Caribbean from Sydney, Australia. Still in the planning stages but your photos of CP have given me another option. THANK YOU!

 

All Bella photos GREATLY enjoyed. She's GORGEOUS!

Poor Enchantment.  You would have no idea what she was in her day.  They should care enough to not dock her next to Symphony. Kind of like I don't work out in the fitness center when the Acrobats, Dancers, Divers, etc. are in there.

He really was tame. Very funny. Second one was definitely both crude and rude. 

Believe me, I understand that sitting in the front row in a comedy venue makes you a target, but Simeon "picked on" an elderly German woman in an inappropriately way. The poor woman (probably in her 80's), cruising solo, obviously didn't understand a lot of what he was saying. When he asked her questions and she answered with a very German accent, he made fun of her and then wouldn't let up! People were all looking at each other as if to say "what is he thinking/doing?" By the time the second guy came out the poor thing was sound asleep in her seat! We saw her the next evening in the Diamond lounge and had a wonderful conversation with her, not mentioning what had happened to her the night before.

Simeon's crude part of his "show" was so gross....maybe he was just fantasizing his own wishes. YUK!!!

No thank you...will definitely skip the adult comedy if he's on Symphony next Fall.

John-Try ordering  the flatbread off the CK kids dinner menu one evening. Perfect

I was told they don't have a kids menu up there.

Poor Enchantment is right !  I'm so disappointed that they are bringing her back  to Baltimore.  Let's hope they at least scrape her down and give her some paint first !

I was trying to decide on Enchantment or Vision for a cruise to Tortola in 2021. Looks like I'll look harder at Vision. Thoughts anyone?

Sea Dog, I'm looking at any ship going to Tortola.  Just want to get to the Baths, without having to fly to San Juan in my case.

Interesting as there are generally kids there.  We sailed Symphony last spring break  and there were lots of families  in CK.  I know there is a kids  menu on Harmony, but  alas, all ships  are different.    Shame, as the kids CK  flat break pizza was delicious.  It was light, not too much cheese and  made a great light meal with a salad, especially towards  the end of a B2B.

I am on Vision for B2B2B next January.  Love the little Vision class lady.  There are only 3 left now with Grandeur leaving...grab one while you still can!  🙂

Different from Oasis then?  Hmm...have to remember that.  Bucky loved ordering chicken fingers from the kids menu for lunch on some days in CK Oasis.

Personally, I'm fine with dark chocolate

Kids menu on Harmony is awful, Oasis and Allure are much better. I'll ask manager why no kids menu.

 

Lots of kids this week

Sorry, no chicken fingers on Harmony 

Oasis- practically perfect

Harmony - not age appropriate in my opinion 

20191030_153734.thumb.jpg.18185f8609c612621190395b9b4fccda.jpg

 

Flatbread is here,  but it's probably the same as the lunch menu. That's about the only kid friendly item

Waiting for Nov 4th when RCI opens up 2021 for Southern Caribbean sailings. Not sure if Vision and Enchantment will still be assigned, but If so, I'm leaning towards Vision. Thanks for your feedback.
