Parrot Cay Dinner
We were in Parrot Cay for an 8:15 pm dinner. I know that lots of people don't like PC, but I don't mind it either way, and I actually like to be there on the first night. I had also called and requested a table for just the two of us. It's the first time I've done this, but this was the first cruise in a while where we were by ourselves and decided to see if we could manage an entire week with just the two of us - LOL.
We were introduced to our servers, Mindaugas was our Server (from herein known as Minda), and Margaret (Maggie) from Trinidad was our Assistant Server. Deniz Baran was our Head Server. Maggie told us to just call them the M&Ms to make life easier. Tonight was the rotational menu and I had this little blue sucker to get the ball rolling. I didn't actually order this, but anyone that knows me, knows that I'll pretty much drink anything. It was the Blue Margarita I think. In another life it was going to be a Melon Mojito . Next time.
The gossip of the evening was about the table next to us. A very pretty lady came in a little late and sat down. She had all kinds of papers and looked like she was working. A short while later they seated a guy at her table, obviously a stranger, and he was by himself. You could tell they felt a bit awkward, and we could see them talking to the servers off to one side. It was all very intriguing!! LOL As a couple that's been married 13 years with no children, we find ourselves making up all kinds of good stories about other people to keep us occupied during dinner.
For dinner, DH had the Island Spiced Seared Ahi Tuna, Parrot Cay Salad (we both had this, see photo below with mine), Pan Seared Grouper and Crème Brulee Cheesecake.
I had Jamaican-marinated Chicken Tenderloins, Parrot Cay Salad, Mixed Grill and French Toast Banana Bread. Everything I had was good. The chicken was moist, the salad was good with the bacon grease on it :-) and the mixed grill was decent. I really liked the French Toast Banana Bread - it was moist in the middle with some crunchy bits on the outside and there was a caramel type sauce. Two Thumbs up!
We are pretty much always exhausted on our first day onboard. Maybe it had something to do with being up at 5:45 am looking for the Wonder to come in.. We were done with dinner by about 9:50 pm and headed to bed to crash out about 10:15 pm. This was waiting for us when we got back....so cute!
