#1 Food

It is probably not any surprise that Food is #1 on my list. I don't think I have ever eaten so much in my life. The options were endless.

Included in your package were:

The Windjammer Cafe which was a Buffet open for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and various snack times. There was a huge variety of food offered at each time and it was constantly changing.

The Main Dining Room - also open for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. This was more formal and you ordered off of a menu. The Dinner was especially amazing with several courses and far too much food for me to eat, but I gave it a wonderful effort and I always found room for dessert (why have I not been introduced to Baked Alaska before now!!)

Room Service - 24 hours a day

Cafe Promenade - a little cafe open 24 hours a day with pizza, different sandwiches, and desserts

Frozen Yogurt Machine - offering vanilla, chocolate, and swirl cones. My husband managed to have at least one cone each day and usually more than that.

There was also a Midnight Buffet up by the pool on one night, a Gala Buffet at midnight in the Dining Room one night (this is what the above pictures are from), and chocolate mints on your bed every night.

If you feel the need to spend extra money on food, because the above just isn't doing it for you, you can choose from the following:

Portofino's - a more upscale, reservation required restaurant that charges an additional $20 per person

Johnny Rockets - eating there incurs a $3.95 charge per person

Ben & Jerry's - ice cream and special coffee drinks for a charge

There were snacks to be purchased in the shops on board and of course, the mini bar in your refrigerator which charged like $3 for a Snickers bar or something like that.

All in all, it was a fun, delicious experience that I hope to repeat as often as possible...

And did you gain weight? I put on 6 pounds while trying to be careful in Australia/New Zealand but eating just like that! How did you do? Is it gone.

As for that baby, we wait....

Full moon tonight - will it pull her out???

That is so weird that they were going to name you Melody! My parents were going to name me either Elizabeth, Mary, or Jessica. When I was born my dad told me mom that God told him to name me Melody. I used to hate my name because it was so different, but I think now I like that it is unique. How are things going for you? I looooveee your cruise pics!
