We Cruised With Virgin Voyages Part 13

CHARLOTTE – Day 4 was a sea day. We began early with poached custom eggs, crisp bacon, juice, and a muffin. They just kept bringing the coffee as we just talked and talked about past, present, and future. No one ever encouraged us to leave and they kept bringing the coffee. With such great views and good food, we just chilled. I opted for Udon Noodles with the Chef special, for lunch. It was amazing and almost healthy. There was a popsicle stand there with fruit popsicles in 4 flavors, just twinkling for me. Soft drinks were free-flowing as was Ice Tea and coffee as you like. Once again into the brink as we enjoyed the quiet pools and hours of conversation with soon-to-be friends from all over the world. Servers kept our glasses full to whatever we chose. It seems my favorite drink turned out to be the mescal margarita. This evening we opted for the Korean Barbeque restaurant called Gumbee. This is an entertaining dining venue with a distinct Korean“Flavor” When you are like us and don’t understand many Asian food concepts, just ask. The wait staff are amazing and explain everything. They brought us samples of everything to try, with spices on the side to chose from. I must admit I was not impressed with the flavors of some of the “small plate” foods, but overall the food was excellent. The main course was the Korean barbeque, with strips of thin flank steak grilled on the table, then sliced, diced, and served freely. There was more than enough for everyone at our table for eight. They taught us a cute game similar to my childhood game of rock, paper, scissors, except when you missed on your turn you had to “Chug” a thimble of Saki. Great fun, good Saki, and great food.
