Eventually it was time to leave the Rainforest and the spa and go back to the room to get ready for dinner. I was waiting for CSP in the lobby of the spa. And waiting, and waiting. He FINALLY appeared and thrusted his arm at me- “Smell my arm! Body wash!” What?? He’d taken a shower! He said he just wanted to look in and see what they looked like. But “As soon as I saw the three bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash- they had me!” Funny boy! He even had me smell his hair. They really do have some nice products!
On the way back to our room we passed the adult pool. Love the pool bar! This is the Cove Cafe. Like a floating Starbucks. We toured through it once. You can get magazines to read and little pastries.
We went back to the room and spent some time out on the verandah. I had a glass of wine and CSP enjoyed a beer. Then it was time for dinner at Royal Court. CSP started with smoked salmon and a bleu cheese polenta cake. I had roma tomatoes and goat cheese. My soup was the potato and sausage soup. I had pictured in my head something like the zuppa toscana that’s served at Olive Garden but instead it had lentils in it. Not a fan of the lentils. So I gave my soup to CSP. He had a mussel and saffron soup that he loved. For our entree we both chose the NY Strip. It was scrumptious. It came with a yummy sauce, corn, green beans, and a little potato poof thing. For dessert CSP chose the trio- lemon cheesecake, tiramisu, and chocolate soufflé. I had the banana bread pudding with caramel sauce. OMG. I would have licked the plate had it been socially acceptable.
Let me just say that for 51 weeks of the year we eat like normal humans. We try to eat healthfully and we watch our portions. But on the cruise, for those 7 nights we’re eating at fancy restaurants having dishes we normally wouldn’t have. So we splurge!
That night was our server Tumelo’s birthday so we made sure to wish him a happy birthday. We heard there was going to be a great party in the crew area that night!
After dinner we went to The Tube for Pop! Pop is a Pop culture game show. We also stayed for the 80’s music challenge. We didn’t win, but we had a great time! I had my High Tide drink while we were in the Tube.
I had to use the restroom so I ducked into the public restroom outside of the Europa district (where all the adult pubs are). It was the fanciest restroom I’d ever been in! There was no one else around so I grabbed CSP and brought him in to see! Just check out this tile mosaic!
At some point during the night we saw Woody and Jessie! And Minnie too! Oh and Donald’s back! We also passed the queen’s throne so CSP took a picture of me sitting in it. Then some lady walked by in a pretty risqué outfit!
