This evening we had calamari (every night), caesar salad (mom ordered one every night), shrimp cocktail, minestrone, strip loin, bbq pork spare ribs, salmon, and basa fillet.
Some shrimp has already been eaten in the photo. Matt can't always remember to wait for my pictures to be over
I personally had the ribs. I love ribs and BBQ sauce so I went for it. I enjoyed my meal. Probably one of my favorites of the cruise. The sauce had a nice flavor. I have read quite a number of people say that serving ribs in the MDR is tacky. I'm going to disagree with that. There are some very nice restaurants on land that serve ribs. Everything else was good that night too.
We had a table serving of the Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes. We had these nearly every night as well. They were very good!
If you're interested in the size of a side of mashed potatoes for four is very big!
I forgot to take a picture of the dessert menu, but my mom and I both ordered the Smores Parfait. It was pretty good!
My mom's boyfriend is a huge fan of magic. He performs it and always carries stuff with him. So when this guy came along he was thrilled!
He chose my mom to do the trick. He had her write her name on a card and place it in the deck. He then "found" the card. He then asked for his sharpie back, but it was nowhere to be found. So my mom said, oh, I have a pen in my purse. As she opened her purse, he pulled it out.
The people at the surrounding tables were surprised and everyone seemed to enjoy his presence. Mom's boyfriend and him got in to a conversation. Nobody else seemed to pay attention other than me. I wont spill the beans on this one, but after their chat mom's boyfriend did a trick of his own.
He had the magician pick a random card. Showed it to us, put it in the deck. Then they couldn't find the card again. They searched everywhere. Then the ship magician tipped his hat to say goodbye and there was the card. I had never seen this one before, but I think I have a good idea what they did
Here is my mom and the magician after his trick. He explained that he installed a device in his deck to do the trick...
My mom and her boyfriend went later that week to watch his magic show. They said he did a good show but the audience was incredibly rude. Some people were talking over him, heckling him, etc. Although I am not a fan of magic I don't think it's right to give someone a hard time while they perform. To me, that's just rude. To go to an event just to hassle someone is classless. I'm very sorry to hear that this happened!
