Is SusieQ still the bar manager in the pub?  She took great care of me on Anthem...

Unless SusieQ is a guy, then maybe not? I have not seen a single female crew member in there. But I will ask the next time I'm in there.

ok...lol 🙃 Foot in mouth! Yes, SusieQ is still here....

So we basically had a super low key day filled with eating, pool (for the kids), more eating, wandering, more eating, and eating again 😳 I have not a clue how I am going to eat dinner in an hour and a half. 

Random findings from wandering:

Wonder how long it will take them to fix this sign?

Disney Dream heading out of port right at you, don't shed a tear too much...

Enchantment and Empress also in port.

Haha! Kids and I were trying to figure out which ship that was. I knew it was the Dream or Fantasy but couldn't see which one.  

Hubby took some pics while running on the treadmill. Will post later.

Wow - Thanks for the menu, @Sabrinaklai!  Matt had posted one from the Quantum pub, but this one looks to have a nicer selection. Awesome to se a Hefe on there as well as a few IPAs!  I think I can break up my rounds of Johnnie Walker Platinum with a Dogfish Head 90 minute or two! :P

 

*edit* Oh man, I just saw that they have poutine!!  Would be nice to get a Canadian's point of view on the quality there, hint hint! XD

Lol! I will see if hubby will agree to it for research purposes. He was already complaining today that we had to "pay" for the fried cheesecake.

Haha - you da real MVP!  Tell Hubby he's gotta spend all that extra cococay OBC now anyway!  :P

Some of the best poutine I think I've had was at the Toronto zoo - soo maybe my standards are a bit off haha. They just opened up a Smoke's Poutinerie on South Street in Philadelphia - I need to hit that up soon.

Standard RC tap list, sadly.  However, that Racer 5 did catch my eye - it's an excellent IPA.  DFH 90 minute is solid, as well.

Day 5 CK Menu:

We kept dinner pretty light tonight as most of our day was already filled with eating. Kids started with their usual tomatoes in a martini glass and we kept it light with a Caesar salad. I did not take a pic as I already have one from an earlier post. Then, hubby and I had another appetizer that we have tried before.

Shrimp Cocktail:  according to Hubby, it's "typical". Rating: B

Wild Mushroom Consommé: I really like the flavouring in this. It is saltier than I would normally eat but I make the exception for this one. Rating: A

Kids each had a burger:

Hubby and I had one of our most favourite entrees in CK. 

Braised Short Rib: tender, moist, soft, falls right apart, excellent cut of meat. This seems consistent as it was the same quality on Harmony too. 

Rating: A+

Dessert!

Royal Chocolate Cake: Very rich but delicious. Hard to eat the whole thing. Rating: A

Coconut Custard: light & airy. Not too sweet and the coconut taste is faint. Surprisingly good!

The CK staff here on Anthem continues to impress me. The head waiter here is like no head waiter I have ever seen on any cruise. Tonight we witnessed him sweep the floor in addition to bussing tables, greeting every table, running around. The rest of the CK staff here seem to follow his lead as they are all excellent with service and so personable. 

Calling it an early night tonight as Hubby and D2 have the Blue Lagoon Dolphin Encounter tomorrow. Meeting time is 7:45am. I will be relying on hubby to give an excursion summary as D1 and I are staying on board.

He better be as good as you are on this blog report, or else there will be a lot of upset folks! Not to mention twangster who is a constant blog surveillance and lurking mode and he has the powers of PS! :27_sunglasses:

😂 Hubby has a new theory about @twangster-bot....wants to know if he is CIA or a virtual Genie lol

JK...we all love @twangster here. Let's face it, our cruise addictions would suffer greatly without him 😊

It's currently 68 degrees. The water would have been too cold for the kids to truly enjoy anyway. I will get that menu pic too for you today. I feel like today is a great day to try those desserts! And I have extra OBC now 😉

Ok...I leave in 12 days... I'm beginning to freak out that it is still cold!   Arghhhhhh.  Jane
