Lobster dinner

When Denis was a kid, he wanted to be a chef.  Well before the age of ten, his mother had him help her in the kitchen.  He is famous for his ‘tarte aux pommes’ (French Apple Pie) and grill mastery.  However most of the food & refreshments aboard are prepared by LaDonna who combines what she learned in her many travels (France, Italy, England, Brazil,  Mexico, Canada, the continental U.S. and throughout the Caribbean) with the local produce and styles to produce a pleasing culinary variety.  We send you a food/drink preference list to cater to guests’ individual desires.   Following are some of the menu choices:
