I try to eat healthy - the fruit was good, but limited to strawberries, cantaloupe, honey dew, and grapes. Every day. Oatmeal was the mushiest I’ve ever tried to eat. Eggs to order were excellent, Very few tea options.

Breakfast buffet is amazing! Dinner is superb. The pianist is a classical touch. Wearing a new dress and having your spouse wear a coat and tie for dinner makes the experience even more special. Dressing up is not necessary for breakfast.More
