After CSP’s wild ride on the AquaDuck we changed clothes back in our stateroom. Snapped a quick pic of our view of Castaway Cay from our verandah. Such gorgeous water!
We went to O’Gills pub on deck 4. CSP had a ticket for a beer tasting. I do not enjoy beer so tasting 5 of them does not sound like fun for me. So I was just there as the photographer. I was surprised at how many people were there considering we were still docked at Castaway Cay. O’Gills is a very cool Irish pub. I loved the little area where we sat for the tasting. The bartender told us all about the history of beer as well as interesting facts about each beer they tasted. Their beers went from light to dark. Five 10 ounce beers for $15 is a great deal! Plus you learn stuff. Well, if you can remember it after drinking 5 beers in an hour! He had Stella Artois, Sam Adams, Boddington’s Cream, Newcastle Brown, and Guiness. We really liked the peanut dispenser dishes they had in the pub. No grubby fingers digging around for nuts. It’s a French company who makes it though- Revol. I’m on a mission to find these in the States. So far I’ve only found a UK site that sells them for a reasonable price.
After the beer tasting we went back to the room and….sob…packed.
Then it was time for our last dinner of the cruise. Back in the Enchanted Garden. By now our sunburns had really set in! Check out CSP’s red face! And my pitiful farmer’s burn! Thank goodness I use good makeup so I could tone down my red lobstah forehead!
For his appetizers CSP chose the Trio of Salmon, and the sesame encrusted tuna. I had a potato and goat cheese Napoleon. We both chose Potato Leek soup but CSP also had the lobster bisque. I think he was taking advantage of being able to order a million things for dinner one last time! I had a cranberry salad. Yum!
For our entrees CSP chose the Beef Wellington. I chose the seafood linguini. I can’t shells in my food so CSP had Beef Wellington and clams plus asparagus! lol
CSP picked the dessert trio- Celebration Cake, chocolate decadence, and a cappuccino mousse tartlet and I had the Celebration cake.
After dinner we went back to our room and found our last (sob) towel animal of the cruise. A stingray! CSP surprised me by bringing out the towel monkey! He had been saving him in the closet.
If you’re wondering how I remember the names of all our dishes and all the details of our trip (especially after the Mixology class and wine in my cabin) I take notes. I went to the Dollar Store and bought a multi pack of these tiny notebooks. I slipped one in my wristlet (one just like this one) with a pen and at every meal I would just jot down what we ordered. I would take a few minuted throughout the day to write down things we did and saw. My friend Lisa has a mind like a steel trap and can write up a trip blog 6 months later without missing a detail! Me- I need help! Hence the notebook.
But wait! There’s more!
