So many wonderful food pics. That cheese looks so good as does the zucchini! Mmm.
Everything was very delicious! The cheese itself was so good but it was the balsamic that made it over the top.

I am glad that you finally made it to Palo and that you enjoyed it. I am glad that Hristo took good care of you. Isn't he fabulous. The Portobello Mushroom and Polenta appetizer is one of my all time favourites.

Congratulation on getting the WBTA booked.

Hristo was our server too! He took GREAT care of us, I'm glad he did so for you too!

That zucchini looks really tasty! I can't wait until we get to go to Palo again even if it is on the Magic!

Congrats on the WBTA! I need to look over some of the itineraries and figure out what we want to do for 2014 and when and how to combine it with a trip to WDW to save on airfare.

I'm really excited
Hooray for you!

Ok, I stand corrected on my hypothesis that perhaps we traveled in different circles on that cruise. I had dinner in Palo the following night (Pirate night) and not only was Hristo my server as well, but I also ordered the sea bass w/the 1/2 order of the gnocchi. <G>

I'm booked on the WBTA, too, so perhaps we'll run into each other at some point during the 2 weeks!

Really enjoyed your last two updates. The food pictures are amazing. It's crazy how much food you can try. Knowing me - I will try everything.

So is there always a presentation on shopping in Nassau?

Question - if you want coffee first thing in the morning do you order it through room service? This is essential for me.

Palo looks lovely. I would like to try for a buffet, if possible.

Cool pictures of the sailboat race.

What a fabulous coincidence that you both had Hristo as well! He really made the evening extra special.

I'm so excited about the WBTA! I'm already planning in my mind

Too funny! That meal was so good I'm glad I was able to move it to that night because I was pretty seasick pirate night, couldn't eat anything.

Very cool! WBTA here we come!

The great thing is they will make smaller portions of things so you can try more than you usually would. I was getting really good about remembering food pictures. Mom would start getting ready to dig in and I'd have to quickly say 'I did my picture first!'

I believe so. Maxine said there's always a shopping guide on each cruise and she did a presentation on every port.

You can order it through room service but then you need to tip them. You'll need to fill out a room service card and put it out the night before. There's also the 24 hour beverage station you can get coffe from. Mom really enjoyed the coffee even though it gets a lot of bad reviews. I don't drink coffee so can't give my opinion.

If you have a sea day on your cruise they do a brunch which looks spectacular. I have one booked for next month so you know I'll bring back oodles of pictures.

Thank you it was such a lovely evening.

I'm really excited to try the brunch, it looks so good from the pictures I've seen. I'll be curious which I'll like better. Several people say they actually prefer brunch. I hope you have no problems getting a reservation.
