Tonight was Elegant Night ... AKA Formal Night ... AKA Get Spiffed Up Night ... AND we were looking good! We shine up really well!
stop, the Atrium Bar where we noticed our piano player, Geza, was all
dressed up for Elegant Night, too. I love the live music Carnival has
in the Atrium, it really helps set the mood and creates a nice
We stopped long enough to taste-test some of Carnivals' tropical drink concoctions ... mmmmm!
ship photographer’s were all around the Promenade offering various
backgrounds and props for formal portraits ... scenes from the bow,
ship’s railing, a piano and even the grand staircase from Titanic
(yikes!). We were dressed and on the Promenade pretty early, around 6
p.m., and noticed there weren’t any lines at that time. Later it would
get a lot busier.
had portraits taken in about four different spots. For the most part
the Photographer’s were fun as they ‘molded’ us into position. This is
the one we liked best.
After all the fun taking photos, it was time to go to dinner.
Want to feel like a VIP?
simple, really ... just sign up for Chef’s Table. While our Chef’s
Table dinner wouldn’t be until Thursday evening (more on that later)
tonight we were graced at our dining table with a visit from Chef Jorg
He came from the galley. I had a
direct line of sight to the galley doors and saw him approaching our
table. Wow, was I impressed when he stopped there wearing his full-on
Chef jacket and hat. Chef Jorg introduced himself to us, telling us he
looked forward to our Chef's Table and inquired about any food
allergies we might have. Now, I don’t have any food allergies (neither
does Rod) but I don’t care for seafood ... at all. I didn’t really want
to be a bother, but as Chef Jorg pressed further I found myself
admitting my dislike for fish. He was very accommodating and proceeded
to conjure up a menu that would be to my satisfaction.
did he even know we were there? I mean it wasn’t like we had a
Traditional dining time with a set table. We had Your Time Dining and
could come as we pleased. I’m convinced Carnival is just magical.
Really, that is the only explanation.
Oh, and the
people dining all around us ... envious stares of curiosity being
directed towards us the rest of the evening, yes us the VIPs! LOL!
another end to another great day ... and we were greeted in our room
this night by my new favorite towel animal, the Elephant!
Tomorrow is Ensenada and our Shore Excursion!
