Food and Dining

4 out of 5
We had our Anniversary dinner at Jaime‘s on Friday night it was fabulous. The Windjammer was filled with plenty of items and we Enjoyed it. On Sunday we ate at Izumi it was fabulous. Now the Main Dining Room on Saturday is questionable service was not like the Brilliance which is GREAT. The appetizer & main meal was OK. The water in the dining room tasted funny. So I asked for bottle water. After about 20+ minutes our waiter came with 2 bottles of water and NO GLASSES. We waited......... Finally, my husband asked someone that was cleaning another table for water glasses. The glasses NEVER CAME. I drank the water out of the bottle.😳 In the Main Fancy Dining Room. SMH. Our server came by and asked us “ This is your Anniversary” we said yes and he walked away. Other guests were sitting next to us. (A couple & a table of 4 guests to my right). We were seated at least 30+ minutes before they all sat down. The server took our complete order from appetizers to dessert at the beginning. We waited and waited for our dessert. The same server took care of the guests sitting to my right. Serving apps and salads. And we waited for our dessert. Till finial, I told my husband I was not waiting any longer. So we got up an left. Very disappointed in the main dining room because I wanted to have my favorite crème brûlée. I give 5 ⭐️stars to Jamie’s & Izumi. And 2 ⭐️Stars to MDR.. Your MDR should ALWAYS be the Best & it’s NOT! Get it together in the MDR. because that’s what we all PAY for included in the Fare$$$$. PS: the MDR was NOT FULL either. SMH

The Schooner bar had a great entertainer. We enjoyed the Schooner bar. The Motown 70s needs to be updated, you do that on the brilliance to the exact same thing. You need to switch it up in the music.

Kudos to ROYAL CARIBBEAN on keeping us safe and cleaning everything and wiping and cleaning and wiping and cleaning and wiping. Washing hands using sanitizer they did a great job to keep the Carona Virus at bay..

We had a great time. 2nd day was in Nassau. Chanel, was our tour guide.  We started on a tour of the City with some Great folks. All being tourists!! Next we stopped at a place called Tasty Teas and we got quite an education on the tea that a Mother & Son started. These teas were special. All natural ingredients put together for specific health benefits.. We all had a tasting have two different teas. (Sorry no pix) Next it was Wine🍷🍷 tasting then across the street to a Chocolate 🍫🍫tasting at Graycliff. Then we were headed to John Watling's Distillery for a tasting 🥃🥃of their best old Rum Brew. They specialize in rum but they also created a gluten-free vodka with a very high alcohol count. We were definitely feel the buzz LOL Glad we had Chanel to get us back to the ship 😆 You can look that up on Google too. The next stop was at The Queens Staircase. Please, look that history up on Google. It’s quite a history lesson.... Last stop was The Atlantis Resort, we’re John & I had a slice🍕🍕. Then headed back to the ship!! We had a busy day and we walked the streets and went back to the ship. Great visit in Nassau..🌤🌤🌤🌴🌴🌴🌴🌺🌺🌺🌺 Got back to the ship for a drink cuz we had the drink package LOL!🍸🍸🍸🍷🍷🍷
