Roma Appetizers Not Free but You Get Them Anyway

This is the place where your tab doubles by the waiter giving you appetizers without asking for them. Although common in Lisbon, you have to demand the waiter take back the appetizers if you don’t want them. Everything else was nice especially the shrimp curry.


Ride StenaLine for a Baltic Cruise to Sweden

Posted by | Cruises | One Comment

Stenaline offers many cruises in Scandinavia, although only two cruises from the port of Gdynia. It’s best to make early reservations at the Stenaline terminal as you can get excellent deals. A three day cruise with a tour of the Karlskrona islands, one night hotel Conrad and the Captain’s suite cost about $500 for two people. This is usually the price for staying in a standard cabin, but you can see the Captain’s suite is totally worth it. The standard cabins are small and the shower head is inconveniently placed over the toilet.
