You've increased our anticipation of our 11/25 Noordam cruise. It's too bad that there's no one else from this board who will be with us.

We have a question about the night in Tortola. Dutch night is our favorite night of any cruise; but our Tortola excursion will get back at about 6:15 to 6:30, too late for the 5:30 to 6 p.m. window for the early dining. Is there any way we can either get the same menu in the Lido, or somehow go to late dinner that night? We would definitely feel bummed if we have to miss Dutch night!

Here is the day 1 menu for the 10 day cruise. Was it the same menu on the 11 day?

You are making me hungry......Went on the Thanksgiving cruise last year aboard the Westie. The menu sounds pretty much the same. Not to bitch, the food was fabulous. Those wine prices are an absolute rip off. I bought a bottle of Meridian the other day for $5.99... Thats why we bring our own, by the case....

I have noticed that the menus between the 10 day and 11 day are very similar. Some items vary. I cheated for the remainer of the days as I ran out of time today.

The Lido offers all the same items on that nights dinner but with a few items missing. The popular ones LOL. The table clothes get yanked out from under you at 8:00 pm on the dot as they have to set up for the 11:30 late night.

A few suggestions in regards to Tortola,
-order room service off the dining room menu.
-the Lido menu might be posted before your tour and if not seek some one down to view it to see if your favorite dutch night item will be available.
-we ate on the island that night and we did tell our waiter. We had late seating. We knew of many others who did the same thing, so plenty of empty seats in the late seating that night. I cant see why you would be unable to slip in for one night. If they are willing to accommodate you. Worth a shot to ask.

We had planned on eating on the island when the ship was scheduled to be in port until midnight, but killed that idea when the time was switched to 9 p.m. (grrrr!). If everything works, our 3:15 Virgin Islands Sailway will end at 7:15. That leaves too little time to eat ashore, and may be a stretch for the 8 p.m. Lido closing if the excursion is even a little bit late. I guess we'll have to ask the Neptune Lounge concierge for advice.

Thanks for the menus, Suer. They've been expanded quite a bit.

I understand, from non-@ddicts Clients, who just returned from Noordam, that Rudi Sodamin has now added one "comfort food" item to each menu...in addition to the regular items of the day.
