Thanks for bearing with me as I try to catch up from our cruise last summer. We're hoping to go again this summer on a different ship with a different itinerary, but another stop at Castaway Cay (more on this soon).
When we returned to the ship, I wish I could tell you that I remember what we did. I don't. If I had to guess, it probably involved getting ready for dinner and the show that evening. After a long day out and smelling like a fish in the sea, we needed to freshen up...that much I know!
Looking at our Key to the World card, we knew the next dining location was Enchanted Garden. We were eager to try out the food there while we talked with our dinner companions.
Just like the evening before, we enjoyed everything we tried! The food was delicious. Each night, you'll start with a bread service. Tonight was multi-grain and country current rolls with chickpea-garlic puree. The appetizers included: lobster ravioli, cucumber garden roll, Ahi tuna and avocado, and a smoked bacon wild mushroom tart. Immediately following were the soup (tomato or cream of asparagus) and salad (spinach and raspberry or Romaine wedge) options. For the main course, we had the following choices: sea scallops, pan seared bass (which was phenomenal), roasted chicken, pork tenderloin medallions, and slow roasted prime rib. Additionally, there were five vegetarian options and lighter offerings, too.
I'm all about dessert, but my pictures weren't the greatest. There was a variety of choices from ice cream sundaes to date pudding, a pecan tart, and the no sugar added treat was a lemon raspberry mousse.
Stuffed by another fabulous meal, we made our way to the Buena Vista Theater. At this point, we decided we enjoyed the seats on Deck 4 vs Deck 5 since you were closer to the stage. Obviously, the earlier you arrive, the better chance you'll have to choose the seat you want. On the first night, we arrived about 15 minutes early, and seats were mostly occupied. We're quick learners though, and we made sure to get there even earlier because "Villains Tonight" was a show we heard that others absolutely loved and we should not miss. It did not disappoint! With Hades from Hercules as the lead, the audience was hysterical from beginning to end. Sadly, this show is no longer playing, so you'll have to trust me when I say, it was a good one!
We spent some more time exploring the ship and were eager to head to bed. Day 3 was going to be spent at Castaway Cay (pronounced KEY)!!
