145 Days

That's how many days until we sail on Carnival Legend. I know it's early, but I'm super excited! We will spend 7 days on a magnificent ship going to wonderful warm Caribbean locations with turquoise water. We haven't decided what exactly we are going to do while we are in ports but I know that we will snorkel at least once and that we want to visit some ruins in Belize.
I think, right now at least, what I'm most excited about is the Chef's Table. This is something new that Carnival is trying out and I have already put in a request for reservations. A lucky group of 12 will actually get a spot at this special table. You start with champagne and appetizers in the galley with the Chef D'Cuisine. Then you are given a tour of the galley. Afterwards you are taken to the library where a special table has been set up. You are about to be served a seven course dinner specially prepared by the chef. He will even come out before each course and tell you what you are having and how it was prepared. At the end of this wonderful three hour feast you are given a group photo and signed cookbook. That is heaven to me!!
A fair number of Carnival ships have a steakhouse that you can pay extra to eat at. Now, that is something that Ian and I aren't interested in paying extra for. The meals in the main dining room are pretty fabulous, but I am very willing to pay extra for the Chef's Table!

  1. Ohh that sounds awesome. Now you have me daydreaming of cruises (never been on one) and warm clear blue water.
