APRIL VACATION VOYAGE
Eight of us will be joining 6,000 of our closest friends on a week-long cruise to the Western Caribbean on the world’s largest cruise ship, Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas. On my last cruise in 2005, I was able to smuggle 8 bottles of nice wine on board to enjoy with dinner each evening but, I won’t be attempting that on this trip. It appears the Royal Caribbean baggage checks are considerably more extensive and you could be denied boarding if discovered. That certainly does not mean a week without wine as the Allure has many specialty restaurants including Vintages, a wine and tapas spot. Just as with our California trip last year I will be reporting on the wine and food we enjoy during our week at sea.
Meanwhile, during the week we are away there are still lots of reasons to visit the blog. Primarily, over 100 restaurant reviews throughout South Jersey and Philadelphia.
