Sibling Serenity Canal Day 10

June 1, 2012

We are at sea for Grand Cayman. Weather is lovely. Some clouds and at last away from the 90 degree heat.

The pool area is active and the Neptune pool area is filled.

The food there seems to attract more than the Lido buffet. This buffet is the one area that could use some help. Everything else on Serenity is at the top of the cruise game, but comparing the buffet’s offerings with other cruise ships, this doesn’t measure up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thing I forgot to mention is the bed pillows. Mine are plumped with feathers and down; soft yet supporting. I’ll have to find out where they can be bought. Not quite satisfied with that, try the Side Sleeper if you sleep on your side, or the Back Sleeper if you sleep on your back, or the Stomach Pillow if you sleep on your stomach, or the Body Pillow, if, I suppose, you are missing someone.

Each night our butler brings us appetizers. He lets us choose from what is offered in his area of deck 11. We’ve had wonderful ice cream scoops of caviar the last three nights.

Tonight it is lobster and shrimp.

The service on the Lido and everywhere else is beyond expectations. Bartenders pour a hefty drink, tables on Lido are bussed quickly and coffee, tea, whatever is brought to you. Refills come faster than you can empty your glass. This is Crystal!

Owen and I were excited to see the next production show scheduled for 8:30 PM. We had reservations at 7:30 in Prego, which we changed to 7. We wanted to get front row seats and people with the same idea start to line up before the doors open at 8.

Our order was taken quickly, but somehow it was 8:40 before I was finished with an incredible lemon-cello soufflé. Well, OK so no show, but the movie Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol was in the theater. It had started, but we grabbed two seats anyway. I sat through one of the dumbest scenes I’ve ever experienced. I left. Owen boogied about 10 minutes later.

To the cabin to read to sleep.
