Fantasy First Sea Day

The Sea was a Little Choppy
And that is what we had gone to sleep with the night before, and what we woke up to the next morning. Since we love the "motion of the ocean, " this was fine with us. Today we had scheduled brunch at Palo, and it was going to be formal night in the dining room, so there were two opportunities to dress up.
Table by the Window
Palo is a very nice looking restaurant, next to the Meridien Bar, and Remy. The food is really good, and they seem to want to kill you with the sheer quantity they try to feed you. When you arrive, you are given a Mimosa, and then taken on a tour of the buffet items, and a la carte items.

Aside from the food you can order, including pizza which I did not include a picture of, there is also a table of breads, a table of seafood, a table of appetizers including caviar, and a table of desserts. There might be more, I think I was in some kind of food coma after it was all finished. The food was delicious, and I would recommend this experience. We spent the rest of the afternoon recovering, and getting ready for formal night in the Animator's Palate.

After dinner, we went to Meridien, where Andrew could enjoy a cigarette, and we could have cocktails outside. This is a very nice space, although it was a little windy.
