cruise recap day two: formal dinner

September 8, 2009

night two on our cruise was the formal dinner in the dining rooms. i embrace any opportunity to put on a pretty dress so i looooved this night! i chose an old new years dress (i refrained from shopping my heart out before this trip- i’m proud of myself!) the sequins just screamed out cruise to me :D.


*sparkle sparkle*

before dinner we stopped by the captain’s welcome thingie…mostly for the free champagne 😉


after a long day in the sun…the bubbles went straight to my head. no complaints about that! haha. we learned that our captain was swedish, and the first woman to command a major cruise ship. i thought that was pretty neat-o…girl power!

after a short speech by the captain, we headed to dinner.

i don’t know why i snapped a pic of the vitality menu…this is supposed to be the lighter, healthier menu…they had a different one every night.


i started with the orange carpaccio. yum…feta. my favorite 🙂


my entree was the golden sea bass…it was okay…i didn’t really like the sauce and ate about half.


i got the cherries jubilee for dessert. i look like i’m about to pass out into my dessert- i was so tired and the wine didn’t help!



here’s carlos with more tricks and brainteasers for us:


our tablemates were all young couples from ca, ct, and quebec. my first time meeting french canadians! for some reason, that was notable to me. 😛

once we got back to our stateroom…we were greeted with our first towel baby of the cruise!

i just about died of happiness!

      hey steve, i didn’t see anyone wearing black tie attire…our waiter told us the guys were okay to wear polos if they wished…but most men at least wore button down shirts.
