Being a Suite Holder is Pretty Darn "Sweet!"

With two of us sharing the cost, we upgraded to a suite---and I'm sure glad we did. We've gotten so many perks.

*When we arrived, there was a bucket of champagne, hors d'oeuvres, and fresh fruit. 
*Each day, we’re served tea, sandwiches and sweets at 4 p.m. 
*We are entitled to make reservations in one of the restaurants that is “first come, first served.” 
*We get to go to another restaurant that is a little more upscale. 
*AND, we got to go to one of the premium restaurants for free. 
*We had reserved seats in the theater. 
*We have butler and a cabin steward---and another guy, but I forgot what his job is.

Here we go with the food----which has been amazing----everywhere. We've decided that it's way too much, so we're doing something more like brunch, skipping lunch, having a light tea and then dinner.
 This is the butter at the Murano restaurant we went to tonight.
 The salt and pepper shakers are tiny and so cute---about 2" tall.
 My appetizer was smoked salmon, crab meat and avocado topped with salmon caviar (the red) with some sort of cream cheese and regular caviar on top. It was fabulous.
 Chris got the scallop wellington---she it was delicious too.
 We both had the lobster that was prepared table side and flambĂ©ed!
 It's kind of hard to tell, but the lobster is cooked in a dijon sauce with mushrooms.

We had the crepes for dessert---also prepared table side.

Enough about the food.

We had our photo session today with Paula and Michael. They are both so funny! 

Rather that go to a show tonight, we watched a movie (The Interns) stitched. Tomorrow we'll be in St. Thomas. I might do a little shopping.

It should be another "sweet" day.


  1. It sounds like a holiday to be remembered for a very long time!

  2. Definitely sounds 'sweet' enjoy the rest of your trip :)
