Default Afternoon Tea

Hi Fellow Cruisers,

One of the things I love is taking afternoon tea. Some ships have an afternoon tea service with chamber music. Does anyone know if the Paradise does this. Just curious.

So who do you think is coming to the rescue again? L O L
Last time we were on the Paradise they did serve afternoon tea, scones and sandwiches in the America Bar. I seem to remember it was around 3pm or so. The actual time will be found in the Capers daily newsletter.

Happy cruising

Captain

I went to afternoon tea on both of my cruises. I loved it. A nice quiet break.. I don't remember there being any music.

I did the afternoon tea on the Inspiration and I remember a young lady playing the piano. I even asked my hubby what one of the songs was. It was a very nice respite from the goings on of the day and the rasberry tart was delicious. I even ate the rest of hubby's cream cheese scone. He just went to please me.

Too funny... you are an expert... Love it! This reply does not surprise me at all. Thank you againi Captain. I wasn't sure since it was a shorter cruise. All the others have. Afternoon tea with friends or even solo is just a way to relax and clear my head. In fact I'm going to tea with friends this weekend.

Thank you again !
Have a Terrific Thursday!
Carol
