UNTIL NEXT TIME
Waterside Dinner Menus from last evening.
We enjoyed our last cruise in the room last night. We began with a nice assortment of appetizers and we had some credits which we used for caviar for Keith. We also enjoyed Don Perignon Champagne (2008) to celebrate the end of an amazing adventure and toasted our love for one another.
Having had lots of appetizers we didn't have an appetizer for dinner. We enjoyed salads, swordfish for Anne Marie and butterfly swordfish for Keith. Dinner was delicious.
We have had an amazing time from start to finish of this adventure. We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Rosewood Baha Mar as the excitement built to join Serenity.
We will never forget our arrival to the ship. We were assisted with our luggage by the Chief Security Officer Sanjev and welcomed home by other members of his team. Adjacent to security was Head Waiter Augusto who we have known for years and he gave us encouragement to dine at Waterside that evening. As soon as we walked a few more steps into the interior of the ship there were several members of the crew and they cheered and applauded as we entered. We cannot explain the emotions we felt. We were home with the people we adore. We felt the excitement at the Reception Desk and as we walked the stairwells many of the stateroom and penthouse attendants were present and so many familiar people we know.
Due to Anne Marie's health situation a prerequisite for us to sail was getting one of the four Crystal Penthouse Suites for both voyages. We knew she would spend a lot more time in our room and having the space of the CP including lots of space for dinner was very important to us. We stayed in a CP in 2017 when we brought our family including children, spouses and three of the five grandchildren at the time as the other two were not yet born. We renewed our vows in the CP and had some dinners there and it was a great room for the grandchildren to stay in when we arranged for two Crystal crew members to babysit for them while the adults went to the Vintage Room. In 2019 we had the CP for two cruises as a large portion of those days was inclusive after we reached our 100th Crystal Society Milestone. These are photos of the Crystal Penthouse.
We depart Crystal Serenity in a couple of hours so we will post now.
In a few days after we get settled at home we will post a summary of the cruise.
We hope you have enjoyed our Blog. Thank you for following along.
Please stay tuned for our next Crystal Cruises adventure coming soon.
