Day 7 – June 1, 2007 - Day at Sea

After a long day in Rome everyone needed a day at sea to rest. No wakeup calls today. The plan was a pool day, workout and brunch. We had reservations for the Palo Brunch at 11:30 am so no need for breakfast. Went up to the pool before brunch and worked out to make room for the brunch. As usual the brunch was beautiful. We filled up on the buffet items and there was no room for the hot items. There was room for the deserts!

When we got out of Palo and went back to the pool. It became cool and windy and everyone was bundled in towels to keep warm. I made a motion to go to the movies, it was second and we were off to the show for the rest of the afternoon, but first we stopped to get a glass of wine for the movie. The movie was Invincible, the true story about the guy who tried out for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1977 and made the team where he played for three years. I enjoyed the movie.

After the movie we watched the art auction for a bit and then went back to our cabin relaxed and got changed for the show “Twice Charmed” and made our way to the theater for the show. The show is relatively new but I have seen it last year when it first came out. It is a musical twist on the original Cinderella Story.

It was a Semi-Formal Dinner and we were at Parrots Cay. This dinning room has not been our favorite and it is does not present itself well during formal and semi-formal. However; during this trip the place grew on us. One reason is the great table we had next to the window in the back corner. Carol got the Portabella Ravioli, and I got the leg of lamb. My lamb was tasty but dry. The sauce that came with it was very good but not enough to take away the dryness. I was able to finish Carols’ ravioli and they were excellent.
