This whole thread could've knocked me over with a feather....I've been on 4 Carnival cruises, and I don't ever remember there being a "tea"!!!
As an anglophile, who would definitely partake of this sort of event, I'm going to be checking the Carnival Capers on our August cruise.
From the posts here, it appears that small cakes and sandwiches are served....I don't suppose there's any chance of scones with devonshire clotted cream????
Oh gawd, I've just made my mouth water!!!
