The March of the Tiramisu

Tiramisu dessert on our MSC cruise
If you've cruised before you have probably experienced one night on board, at dinner time, the Parade of the Baked Alaska. Uniformed waiters march in a long line through the restaurant, each carrying a plate displaying a magnificent Baked Alaska dessert. Sponge, icecream and meringue lit by a blazing candle. It is quite spectacular.
   On our MSC cruise on Sinfonia, we were very much amused one night at dinner when the waiters, wearing sashes the colours of the Italian flag, paraded round the dining tables carrying platters of that divine dessert, Tiramisu. Coffee, sponge biscuits, liqueur and chocolate - yum!

The passengers really got into the festive mood, swirling their linen napkins round their heads and singing, at the top of their voices, that rousing Italian song, 'Volare'.
  Such fun and such a delicious end to the meal.
