The Seabourn Legend: Tea Time

Tea Time on the Seabourn legend occurred every day at 4pm and was served in the Midnight Sun Lounge, usually to classical guitar or piano. The view from this lounge was 300 degrees and it was situated at the very front of the boat on the highest deck. The club chairs were cushy and comfy. The only problem was that it was always freezing in there, compared to the balmy Caribbean sea air on deck.

We are old people at heart, so we loved tea time. You could order quite a variety of teas from a tea menu and finger sandwiches and sweets were served. We rarely went for the sweets, but the sandwiches were really, surprisingly good. Kudos to the garde manger.

Shrimp Salad Sandwich, Roast Beef Club, Squash Sandwich and Homemade Chocolate Truffles

Roast Beef Sandwich, Egg Salad Sandwich, Turkey Sandwich and Club Sandwich

Club Sandwich, Yellow Squash Sandwich and Lemon Cake
The squash was very flavorful, not something we would have expected. The lemon cake was not very good, actually, but we are not sweets people.

Prosciutto Club Sandwich, Smoked Salmon Sandwich and Cucumber Sandwich
The cucumber sandwich, which is the most classic of tea sandwiches, was actually the least satisfying.

Smoked Salmon on a Croissant and Strawberry Tart
Alexis just ate the strawberries off the top of the tart, because the crust and custard were not that good.

Egg Salad Sandwich, Salami Club, Currant Scone with Clotted Cream
This was a revelation moment for Giao, when he realized that scones are sweet, not savory. he was confused because Alexis always makes cheddar chive scones, which are savory. We have agreed to call Alexis' scones "biscuits" from here on out.
