    It’s time for my daily ORANGE chandelier rant. Though some of the chandelier looks white due to the flash, believe me when I tell you that it is all ORANGE. Okay, that’s the last time…..

    [​IMG]

    Tonight, the waiters started off by singing “That’s Amore”……

    [​IMG]

    They followed that by dancing to “Celebration”…..

    After dinner Ryan and I went to the 10pm comedy show featuring Jaylyn Bishop. She was very good…..

    Patti passed the Piano Bar 88, where piano player Brad had the crowd singing along…..

    [​IMG]

    She then stopped at the Fun Hub to check emails, then made her way back to the cabin…..

    [​IMG]

    After the comedy show, I played blackjack for an hour or so, winning a $100 before calling it a night.

    Here is tonight’s turndown service and towel animal…..

    Day 3 – Our second day at sea…..

    The weather forecast for today was partly cloudy, with an occasional rain shower. The seas were fairly calm. This was the view out of our cabin window…..

    Here is how you construct a breakfast burrito…..

    [​IMG]

    This friendly crewmember is building my breakfast burrito. I like the jalapeno tortilla filled with Mexican eggs, chicken sausage, ham, cheese, potatoes, salsa, sour cream, and hot sauce…..

    [​IMG]

    Here are a couple of pictures of the Salsa Bar…..

    Patti catches me enjoying my first Thirsty Frog Red of the day…..

    [​IMG]

    I hung out at the Red Frog Rum Bar for a few beers, then went to visit my buddy Theodoro back at the Tides Bar.

    Meanwhile Patti took the camera, as she was planning to check out the Dr.Seuss parade, then play a three game set of bingo. Here we see that the stage is set for the Seuss a Palooza…..

    The parade started all the way aft on Deck 5 in the Limelight Lounge, led by CD Matt Mitcham…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The parade went the whole length of the Promenade Deck, then down two flights of the Atrium stairs to Deck 3, and finally winding up in the Ovation Theater…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All the children sat right on the stage as Matt read the story of “The Cat in the Hat”…..

    Patti met me at the Tides Bar, and we decided to have lunch at Cucina del Capitano. For those who are familiar with the Conquest and Splendor Class of ships, it is located where the Fish and Chips or the Rotisserie is on those ships. Here is the entrance on Deck 11. There is another entrance on Lido Deck 10…..

    [​IMG]

    For lunch the Cucina del Capitano is a pasta bar, and there is no charge. For dinner they serve Italian meals for a $15 up charge. Here is the menu board outside of the entrance…..

    [​IMG]

    Reservations are not needed for lunch, but are recommended for dinner. Here is the reservation table…..

    [​IMG]

    Here are the Chef’s preparing the meals…..

    [​IMG]

    When you are seated you are given a number. We were given # 20 which just happens to be Patti’s birthday!

    [​IMG]

    They give you a paper to fill out with your choice of pasta, sauce, salad, bread, extras, etc. You hand it to your waiter, and then the chef’s prepare it. Here are my selections…..

    Here are Patti and I at Cucina del Capitano…..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There is one big negative with the location of Cucina del Capitano, and that is the Sports Court is located directly above it. While we were there, it sounded like an earthquake was happening above your head, and the chandelier was actually swaying a little. It was so loud that even the turned up music they were playing couldn’t hide it. I was told that they close the Sports Court during dinner hours, but that’s not fair to those that want to use it. They should have installed padding above Cucina del Capitano, then installed the Sports Court above it. Anyway, here are some Cucina del Capitano views…..

    After about 20 minutes our meals were delivered to us…….

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Other than the noise from above, we both enjoyed our lunch, and made plans to try the Cucina del Capitano for dinner one night.

    Afterwards, Patti and I made our way to the casino to play blackjack for a few hours. Patti wound up winning $50, and I won $200. Not a bad afternoon!

    We both went to the Red Frog Pub for a few drinks, and then made our way back to our cabin to relax before heading to dinner. We both loved the cranberry nut bread…..

    [​IMG]

    Tonight, both Patti and I started with the spring rolls and a shrimp cocktail…..

    [​IMG]

    Ryan and Patti both had the baked ziti……

    [​IMG]

    Patti also had as side of green beans…..

    I had the veal parm……

    [​IMG]

    I also had the pork chop again, and it was good, just like the first time…..

    [​IMG]

    For dessert, Patti had the butter pecan ice cream, while I tried the coconut cake…..

    [​IMG]

    After dinner, Ryan and I went to the comedy club to see Cee Jay Jones, and it was a very good show. From there I went to play blackjack, and gave back $250. Still up for the cruise though.

    I was back to the cabin by midnight to find tonight’s turndown service and towel animal. It was another fun day!!!

    We are not in a hurry to leave the ship to avoid the initial rush. Our plan for the day is to take a taxi over to Orient Bay for some beach time, but for now, breakfast is the first order of business. We head up to the Blue Iguana for a breakfast burrito…..
