Tonight, we’ll be dining in Qzine, another specialty restaurant with a group of 30 or more Cruise Critic members. The cruise ship arranged special pricing for the group of US $35 per person, usually priced at US $55 per person for what we experienced as a spectacular meal when we previously dined at Qzine a few years ago.
With our premium drink packages, we will be able to partake in any beverages offered on the menu, including wines and Tom’s favorite VSOP Cognac. Although I don’t drink more than two glasses of wine in a night, the quality of my selection is pertinent.

The restaurant manager and staff are going over the top to ensure my meals are satisfactory, actually more than needed. After all, if they serve me a chunk of salmon and steamed vegetables, I am perfectly content. When I’m extra hungry, I order a Caesar salad minus the croutons.
Tom and I both watch the quantity of food we consume on this cruise, preferring not to gain weight. Many options are befitting my way of eating, and I could easily eat more than necessary.
|This morning’s Cruise Critic meeting was held in the Sky Lounge on deck 14.|
After breakfast, we headed to our favorite spot, Cafe al Bacio, and I ordered a sugar/caffeine-free vanilla macchiato with real cream. Tom ordered the caramel macchiato, again with real cream.
That coffee drink is my one indulgence for the day since I don’t eat fruit or any dessert. We forego lunch each day and are avoiding any off-meal times to check out the buffet on deck 14. But it’s certainly tempting.
|The Sky Lounge is a great spot to stop for drinks and conversation.|
We’ll be back tomorrow with new photos from tonight’s gourmet adventure and whatever morsels we can share as we relax and enjoy every moment of this cruise.
