Diane and Frank are currently aboard Eurodam sailing trans-Atlantic from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy.
The captain and guest relations manager invited Frank, myself, and nine other guests, most of whom are in the travel industry, to a private cocktail party and dinner. Printed cards displayed our seating arrangement.
We feasted on lobster tails and a gourmet dessert with arches of white chocolate and almond all paired with fine wines. The guests were fascinating and had tales of adventure on their travels along with the captain and his guest relations manager’s interesting stories. We all then went to the Black and White Ball and waltzed to a live band, finishing with a Twist contest won by a couple that won everyone’s votes.
I will never forget that evening. A few nights later we received a large printed copy of our menu signed by the captain. I plan on framing that one. — Diane
