DAY 9 Today is Officers Day on the Rotterdam. The officers are out and about the ship in large numbers. After another great breakfast in the King’s Room, Dick heads to Trivia and Carolyn goes to the cooking demonstration. Executive Chef Thomas is cooking up a Black Forrest cake. Chef Thomas is from Germany. He has brought a cherry liquor from Germany to use in the cake we sample. Carolyn has never really liked Black Forrest cake, but this one is very good. The chef has us sample the German liquor and compare with some from the US...there is no comparison... the German brand is so much better. That explains why the cake is so good.
