Eggs Benedict. Unlike other lines Crystal seems to know that one of the ingredients is lemon juice.
330 degree view of Palm Court from the starboard side, foreward looking aft . You can see the Sunset Bars area under the circle in the ceiling on the right side of the image
180 degree Palm Court view from the stage (at the aft portion looking forward) , I guess Buddha showed up to watch the morning exercise class and decided not to leave.
Nearly empty pool deck. For the skin cancer seekers, er sunbathers it was never really crowded
"Artwork" thats the ticket
Trident bar menu first side. The cold soup experienced a severe case of Groundhog Day as the cold soup of the day, Gazpacho Andalusia was the same every day of the cruise.
Ask for the French Fries or Fried Onion Rings (they are thick rings, not the strings) well done.
Where have all the passengers gone?
I never did find out what Americone Dream was.
I wonder what bugs if any infest those plants.
A potential home for wayward birds. Far better than a place for wayward spiders.
The retractable roof that once again only opens via the magic powers of the United States Coast Guard. Maybe next time Ill invite them on to open it for me.
Trident Bar on the day the gate was broken. At least the liquor was OK.
French Rose, La Vie en Rose, Provence.
Bloody Mary. Probably the most horseradish I've seen in a base bloody mary on a cruise. Flavor (but not heat) wise perhaps a bit too much.
The tattletale Sangria. It was watching this being made that let me know Sangria on this ship wasn't the the variety where the wine and fruit have time to get to know each other. More like a one night stand version than a long term relationship.
A Crystal recipe Caipirinha. Crystals recipe uses brown sugar(!). Lesson of the drink: Ask how the bartender will make the drink on Crystal. They have some rather divergent versions of drinks.
A proper (well aside from the liquor being kind of sort of not even average for the type) Caipirinha made with white sugar. Thanks Junior.
Not the Guinness you're used to (or looking for when mixing with Champagne in a Black Velvet). I found out later the ABV in this version was 7.5% versus 4.5% in the Guinness you get on tap.
For those that need to know everything that's available that screen was a rotating display of the wines and champagnes. The closest Crystal came to selling you a drink of the day.
Tastes lunchtime crowd.

Cute but I'm not sure how good for the environment it is to have single use glass bottles.
Does everything need to be a name brand? Is this how Edie intends to attract the 1% that already have their own jetyachts?
