April 15th, 2016 - Day 13 - En route to Manila, Philippines

Today we woke up to cruising the Philippine Sea.  Nothing but ocean out our window.

We had breakfast in the Grand Dining Room. Jim had scrambled eggs, bacon, lyonnaise potatoes and sourdough toast.  Pat had a sugar donut that she shared with Jim and to counteract the donut she had a yogurt parfait with berries and granola.  Ha!

It is 72° out and somewhat muggy.  We walked around the ship and decided to relax in our room and read.

For lunch we had a slice of pizza in the Terrace Café.  Jim had a chocolate chunk cookie that he could not find any chocolate chunks in it.  He also had a little pastry that had cream filling inside that he really liked.  Pat had a lemon tart which was delicious. We shared a scoop of pecan ice cream.

Pat sat on the veranda in the afternoon to dry her hair.

For dinner we ate in the Grand Dining Room.

Pat had cream of potato soup.  Her main course was grilled Florida lobster tail with Rougail sauce and rice with asparagus.  It was delicious the sauce was Asian spicy.

Jim had fingerling potato with sturgeon caviar and lemon sour cream for his appetizer.  He had cream of potato soup which was supposed to be vichyssoise but it was hot instead of cold.  For his salad he had butter lettuce with crumbled Danish bleu cheese.  For his main course he had Risotto alla pescatori con fruitti de mar e limone.  He enjoyed his meal.

For dessert we shared the Grand Marnier soufflé with vanilla sauce.

Another fine day of eating!

Goodnight from the sea!
