What a wonderful surprise

Today was an amazing day. It started off with a very long disembark that I could write a book about, but I will leave that for another day. After saying goodbye to our good friend Barbara (she was with us for the Panama Canal). We visited our friend from the 2010 World Cruise Dyann Riley. She lives just six short blocks from the ship terminal, in downtown San Diego.

When we arrived at dinner and our good friend Susan Hasson had booked this second part of this cruise to surprise us. Of course Tom the Dinning Room Manager had arrange for us to sit together. It was a wonderful surprise.

After the late show we returned to the room to find Spa Appointments for tomorrow that our friend Barbara had left for us as a thank you for us taking her on the cruise. So all in all it was a day filled with wonderful surprises.

Valor Chef’s Table

Although I have done the Chef’s Table on Carnival in the past. This time stood out because of the Master Chef do the presentation (Satish). He is leaving the valor and his next ship is the splendor. So if you are going to the Splendor I recommend trying the Chef’s Table.

Here are the pictures I took of the galley tour and the dishes we were served:

Note to my HAL Friends: The Chef’s Table on the Amsterdam is still the best.
