|Douw, Jasper and Bernie|
We decide to get some dinner now and head to Portifinos for a meal, this sailing Portifinos is being used for early traditional dining at 5:30 but opens for anytime at 7:45. We have no problem getting a table at 8:15 and Douw takes very good care of us as usual. Our assistant waiter is on his first cruise on his first contract and you can see he is nervous but does a great job. I skipped the appetizer and salad and went straight for a lovely chicken dish that was served with carrots, asparagus and zucchini. Then of course dessert of cream Brule! We also enjoyed a bottle of Wolfe Blass, and corked the remaining wine for another time. Princess now gives you a little ticket that states the wine and your cabin number and where you dined. They have done this for awhile now but we always seem to loose the little ticket, but they still are able to locate the wine.
We discuss options for dinner tomorrow and decide since tomorrow is formal night we would try and get a reservation for Sabatinis – Douw runs off and comes back with a confirmed reservation for Friday at 7:30. Wow thanks for the personalized service Douw! But all the head waiters are amazing and bend over backwards for all passengers.
We decide after dinner to check out the comedian Jim MacDonald in the Princess theater. We join
his friends (cruise critic friends). Jim
MacDonald we have sailed with before in fact we have probably seen his shows
about 5 times but we love his video montage he does at the end. My favorite line was “all the teens sailing,
trying to be cool, yeah dude it is spring break and I am on a cruise” yeah but not so cool that you have to share a
cabin with your grandmother.
Laughing!!! So if you are on a
ship with Jim make sure you check out his show.
