High tea on the high seas

Aqualina aboard Azamara Journey 
Having high tea in Aqualina restaurant  was one of the perks of a sea day aboard Azamara Journey, our home for  the past  20 days while we  cruised  the Mediterranean.

The  mood was set by the  pianist at the entrance to the  10th floor restaurant and on the way to our table  I was able to catch just a few photos of the tables laden with sweets and savoury treats.

Tea was served by a  waiter  in white gloves and the  porcelain cups and linens added an elegant note worthy of the finest London hotel high tea.

Another special  dining experience  was the Chef's Table, where the menu (French, Italian or Californian) is paired with special wines  and accompanied by the sommelier's anecdotes. The leisurely  and cosmopolitan atmosphere  is reflected in the menu of the Chef's Table I hosted during another sea day. (click on photo to enlarge)
