Tom, like you I was so impressed by the lavish luxury of the ships. . .huge dinning room and all the food. Don't think we have had the joy of being at afternoon tea and music on our ships. . .must have missed that. OH ya, on the very first cruise on P&O SS Canberra which was a total British ship and crew, we had high tea every afternoon with tea and crumpets and select pastries. They were so wonderful.
