each day we had different choices and never was a choice repeated. And if we didn't like anything at this restaurant, we could always toddle off to the poolside burger bar, where they served pizza, burgers and tacos all day. And anytime we wanted a snack, we could take as many freshly baked cookies as we wished * peanut butter or choc chip*
when day 2 arrived, I decided that I didn't need to taste everything. I didn't want to roll down the gangplank when I got home. So I paced myself and did alot of deck walking - and as I walked the deck, I thought of those elegant days when steam ships were popular. Imagining people in their finery walking just as I was *although I was in my totally un-elegant joggers*
Each morning we would get up and go off to breakfast, when we came back our room was transformed * new towels, bathroom all nice and cleaned and our bed was made, fresh ice in the ice bucket, clean glasses and fresh fruit* our cabin steward *yudi* was our own personal genie and a gorgeous young man. He made our stay just perfect.
