Alaskan Cruise - The Olympic

When we stared our boarding process on the ship, we had to get our key cards from a gentleman standing behind a podium. My first thought was that he was going to try and sell us something. To our total delight, instead he informed us that we were being comped a dinner at the historic Olympic restaurant on the Millennium. This was a big deal to me. Normally, it costs $35.00 per person to dine in the Olympic, but more than that was the historical value.

You see, the Olympic ship was the sister ship to the Titanic!

Right before you enter the restaurant, there is a small museum of artifacts from the historic Olympic ship.

This was the solid brass bell off of the Olympic ship.

..and if all that was not enough to wow you..this will. All of the paneling, the glass wall decor and trim was salvaged and rebuilt in this very dining room!!

This is what you see when you walk into the Olympic Restaurant.

This was our table! Have you ever seen anything so romantic?

Look at this luxurious private dining room!

This is the second part of the Olympic dining area. It is obviously not made with the historic elements as the other section.. but still so meticulously decorated with pastel calming colors.. I just wanted to copy it in my dream home - not my barn home!!

Don't we look cute!! It was not Formal night..but we decided it was such an honor to dine in the Olympic, we dressed the part... after all, what well bred gentleman or lady of the late 1800's would not put on their bet attire to dine in such a place?

The food was the finest I have ever experienced and the service was impeccable!
