We've enjoyed another great 24 hours on-board Crystal Serenity.
For dinner we dined at Umi Uma. We have enjoyed Nobu cuisine since the time we boarded Serenity in 2005. We remember back then and over the next few years that some guests were reluctant to go thinking everything served was Sashimi and some didn't know what to order. On occasion some would ask if they could join us for dinner there so we could help guide them through the menu. In time, most guests would dine there and realize there was a great variety of items to choose from the menu.
Keith was first exposed to sushi and sashimi on Crystal Harmony and also on a business trip to Tokyo where he just gave it all a try.
Our return to Umi Uma was amazing. The food was better than ever. The entire wait staff and sommelier team has returned except for only one waiter. We were in the best of hands between Head Waiter Sigi, Waiter Renato and Sommelier Adrian and when it became busy Ruel helped out as well.
Last night's featured entertainment was appropriately Marco Romano an accomplished Italian Vocalist. In addition, there were many other options including two showings of the movie Moving On, dancing to live music, music in the Crystal Cove including pianist Stephen Roberts , Violinist Nadi Matlunina and guitarist Carlos Rayan who we have known since World Cruise 2019, The Avenue Saloon featured pianist and singer Joel Spree and a Karaoke Party in Pulse with DJ Emotion.
After enjoying breakfast and walking we took the tender over to Calvi Corsica, France. The weather was overcast, breezy making it feel cool with very little humidity. Unlike yesterday, the sea swells were relatively calm. This was the first time Anne Marie was in a tender since 2019 as we didn't get off the tenders on all of the Bahama Salinas. However, she was in zodiacs several times when we sailed Endeavor circumnavigating Iceland.
We enjoyed walking around the town. It's mainly restaurant, cafes, shops, small hotels along with a few places to visit. It was nice just to take in the sites and smell the roses. We ended up speaking with Avenue Saloon Pianist/Vocalist Joel Spire and his lovely wife.
After enjoying a wonderful lunch Keith returned to playing Paddle Tennis while Anne Marie enjoyed a nice walk on the Promenade Deck and we enjoyed time talking to fellow guests and crew.
