In celebration of Independence Day we donned our red, white, blue and were welcomed by a very patriotic display in the Vista Dining Room. Next, we took part in a galley tour.
Dinner at Canaletto began with a lovely choice of antipasti including various grilled veggies, fresh mozzarella, sautéed calamari, cured meats, and much more. We highly recommend the Linguine ai Frutti di Mare, the lasagna and the chicken marsala. Gelato was the perfect ending to our meal.
