After shopping and touring on foot the city of Bordeaux, we needed to get ready for the Chef's Gala Dinner. Don and I found a salon for me to get a blowout. It was funny trying to communicate to them what I needed, but once they understood, it was wonderful!

another appetizer to choose
the entree I chose
2013 Château Macquin $17 a Bordeaux blend
2014 Château Marjosse, Grand Vin de Bordeaux, $12, a Bordeaux blend white
Of course, on every cruise ship during the captain's dinner, the whole kitchen staff, chef and all servers, etc. parade around the dining room and this was no exception. It was so much fun!
