Cruising Towards Miami

Cold day at sea

Day 265 – November 22nd, 2014.

At Sea bound for Miami.

Today was very overcast and there was a slight swell for most of it. A good day to just relax, which is what we did.

This was our towel creation from last night, can you see what it is?

“Decorating Carnivals cabin doors”

While walking around the coridors we did come across a couple of cabin doors which were decorated, apparently it is becoming a big thing on Carnival cruises to decorate your cabin doors, well at least that is what I read on their Facebook page.

We had sea day brunch today at around 10.30am in the main dining room. They have another breakfast menu for the non sea days and then do not have lunch.

We had afternoon tea and again they had to go and search for some jam for the scones… Do Americans not know that you have jam with scones? There was plenty of staff to cater for afternoon tea yet trying to get served was a challenge.

We saw the movie at 6pm called ‘the other woman’ which was very funny. With the movie on at a better time tonight we didn’t miss dinner for the final night at our table with Edwardo & Carla, also the other couple made an appearance, apparently he had a cold all week.

“Medium or Rare”

Dinner was very average and also the service, Carla had ordered medium roast beef… it was as rare as good be, the waitress said that it was medium and I said the chef needs glasses as this was totally not medium so she had it returned and a more cooked one served. This was nearly all fat and covered in gravy.

I’d like to know what your thoughts are on that slice of beef in the comments below.

Really very poor, and the whole time we have not been called by our names once, maybe that is not policy on the Splendor. Also the Grand Marnier Soufflé had the sauce already on it and was nothing more than a soggy sponge!!

We had a great night at the table with our friends though and made arrangements that when we visit Brazil next March for the day in San Paolo that they would meet us and show us around a bit.

The connections were made on Facebook, and we said our goodbyes. Most of the cabins had their bags out ready for debarkation day tomorrow. Not for us as we get to stay for another week.

Don’t forget to tell us in the comments below what you think about that piece of beef served for dinner.
