Default Tea Time (Pictures)

This is the set up for Tea Time which is held at 3pm on Sea Days. These pictures were from the Pride but its pretty much the same set up on all ships.

Wennfred you are awesome! Thank you so much for the pictures. Did you take them? Great pix. Can't wait for Tea Time on the Paradise now. And, now I'm hungry too.

Have a Tremendous Thursday!

wow, I didn't notice Tea Time on Sensation, will there be one when I cruise Fascination? I would love to go to tea. Is that a casual or "business casual/dressy" affair?

Casual, as most people went in shorts and t-shirts, the problem with tea time is that its held around 3pm and there is always something else going on during that time, its also a good time to take a nap. Most people miss Tea Time and the Galley Tour.

Fred,

Welcome to Cruisemates.

I have always wanted to try tea time, but as was said, there is always something else going on.

The desserts are so yummy as is the salmon (boy I wish I had some now).

We also enjoy listening to the beautiful music and always finding someone new to meet. The space to sit is limited so we always join somebody's group or they join ours.

Regarding the Galley tour, ours was cancelled permanently. We were told that they aren'tt going to offer it anymore because of the norovirus.

I've been looking forward to Tea Time on our cruise (Oct). I will finally get to use all the things my grandmother taught me!! Do they have other brands of tea than Lipton by chance? Those pics were great! Oh boy, I cant wait!!

Thank you so much for the pictures!!! They were fantastic and even my 11yr old daughter thought it looked tasty. I can't wait to spend some special Mother Daughter time with her during tea time on the Miracle in Dec.

Do they offer any other drinks than tea? I know thats a strange question, but, I would love to share this long forgotten tradition with my daughter however, she's not very fond of tea.

Would love to see more pics...

As you can see from my gif here, I am a huge tea lover, although I have never had tea onboard, your delish pictures have changed my mind!

I am usually too reluctant to leave the pool and the sun in midafternoon, but after seeing your photos Fred, I think I will have to visit at least one TeaTime!

Wennfred,

What great pics! It's been a long time since I have gone to one of the Afternoon Teas. It seems like we are always doing something else when it comes up. Also, I couldn't remember what most people wore. I was glad someone asked that question. At that time of the day, casual is so much easier. Thanks to you, I am going to try to make the tea during my next cruise. Now...I want to go look at your pics of pizzas and burgers. You are going to have to stop this, I feel a "past midnight snack attack" coming on!
