I’m hungry, and I’ve been hungry since about 12 p.m. today, at which time I was zipping through treetops in Belize after spending an hour on a bus and another hour waiting in line. It was a fun trip, but it was incredibly long, and the return bus ride had me ready to eat my Sail & Sign card. Once across the gangway, I made a beeline for the buffet, only to discover it had closed at 3:30 — an hour before passengers were due back from their time ashore.
I won’t lie — I’m a little confused by the hours of some of the eateries onboard. Options are extremely limited for those of us who don’t have dining times until 8:15. (The buffet is open from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on port days or 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on sea days for breakfast, noon to 3:30 p.m. on port days or noon to 2:30 p.m. on sea days for lunch, and 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for dinner.) So, I’m currently stuffing my face with my fourth Guy’s Burger Joint burger. (This time, I’m just eating one.) I discovered that the deli was also open, but the line was seriously long, and I was feeling seriously impatient. And, let’s face it, 24-hour pizza is for those nights when you’re dancing ’til the wee hours and suffering from pina colada overload.
Yesterday, when I attempted to generate some blog fodder by visiting the ship’s new BlueIguana Cantina, I was surprised to discover that it’s only open until 2:30 p.m. It opens at 7 in the morning. To me, that seems odd. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t have burritos on the brain when I wake up.
At any rate, check back tomorrow (hopefully) for a post in which I pit Red Frog against BlueIguana in my “booze and burritos” report.
