Grand Dining

One of the nicest things about being on a cruise is the dining experience, especially when you have dinner in the main dining room. The service is excellent, the food is delicious, the wine sublime and our week onboard the Navigator of the Sea was no exception. When we stepped into the dining room I felt as if I was walking into the dinner scene from Hello Dolly. Our waiter, Stefan was exceptional and tended to our every need. Actually I knew I was in trouble when on our first evening I couldn’t decide between two desserts. Stefan looked at me and said…”that’s not a problem…I’ll bring both.” Oy!

  11. Wow! That is beautiful and grand. Reminds of the movie Titanic πŸ˜‰
    I’ve never been on a cruise, I don’t know if I ever will as I am scared to be on a ship for that long. I think it’s because I know I cannot swim 😦

    • Thanks Andy. There are actually 2 formal nights and the other nights are semi-formal and smart casual. It is fun though.
