I AM CERTAINLY HAVING VARIETY this season--so far I have had three German ships, three Norwegian, one Swedish and now an Italian. Incidentally, at the table at meal times on this one there is a wine decanter. Sits in front of me at each meal and they just can't understand why I don't drink wine with my meals. The food is very good but a bit different and I enjoy it very much but they keep saying if I took a little wine I would enjoy it more and after all it would do no harm taken with food. Little do they know that if I took the wine I'd forget all about the food. Their English is not good enough for me to explain so I just let it ride. But I'm sure of one thing. I'll sample all their food but will definitely pass up the wine.
