Day 9 continued-Captain's Gala Dinner onboard the AmaDolce

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!

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!
