Baked Alaska farewell

Baked Alaska, Bombe Alaska, Dessert, Cruising

We call it Bombe Alaska, but I guess in these security-conscious days, Baked is much more politically correct. Either way, the chefs and serving staff of the Manhattan Restaurant have a great treat in store on our last night. A drum roll, and then there they are, parading these magnificent desserts, down the spiral staircase and around the room as diners clap and twirl their serviettes and the band plays a rousing march. It’s totally hilarious, but also rather touching. Next, the chefs line up and sing a farewell song, incorporating the word for ‘goodbye’ in a variety of languages. Australian English being what it is, we get Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi, but are grateful for the recognition nonetheless…
