Friday, May 6, 2011 – Ft. Lauderdale, FL - Continued

Embarkation and Sail Away (Continued)…

The muster drill was the shortest we have every encountered (maybe 10 minutes tops).

My meeting with Raymond Palmer, the Program Cruise Director, was also very quick and to the point.  I also met the other speaker on board, Ted Pohlman, who is the Destination Speaker.  There is also a Bridge Instructor and Arts and Crafts (Origami) instruction on board.

We have seen this sail away before, but it is still scenic…

Checking with the Maitre D, we found out that we had no table assignment.  We decided to not eat in the Dining Room this cruise but rather check out the Windjammer Cafe and the Sea View Cafe for lunch and dinner. 

The Sea View Cafe on Deck 12 is open for Dinner until 6:30 PM.  We tried the Fish and Chips, Chips, Salsa, and Guacamole, and the Grouper Cesar Salad.  All the food is prepared to order which is a real positive.  The food was good.

The Welcome Aboard Show in the Coral Theater featured comedian, Rich Ceisler, who was very very funny,  Low key but spot on with his observational humor.  Also got a preview of the Royal Caribbean Singers and Dancers (most of whom, unusually, are from the US and Canada), 

After the show, we listened to Lyn MacKay, pianist and vocalist, in the Schooner Bar.  She’s a belter but we enjoyed her singing – she also sang some of my requests.

Our room seems quiet – no engine noise.  Hoping it continues.
