Saturday January 14th – Day 10
It’s a great chance to see where all of our wonderful foods are prepared and to meet the individual chefs at each food station.
The only problem with this of course is it all looks so delicious you end up with too much food and with the wine flowing freely we needed to retire to our sunbed for an afternoon snooze in the shade.
Dined in The Colonnade this evening…Chinese …. the appetiser was a choice of roasted duck pancake Shanghai style with spicy cucumber and plum sauce or steamed pork dim sum with a sweet chilli sauce. Vance couldn’t decide which so guess what…he had both…I don’t know how he stays so slim!!
Showtime tonight was mezzo soprano Heather Clancy. Her intro was described as ‘A tart, effervescent take on the solemn world of opera….. and John the cruise director managed to put a long pause after the word tart which of course brought laughs from the audience – he quickly tongue in cheek apologised. Luckily for John she took it all in good fun otherwise she would have had his guts for garters.
