The Reality-TV Show That Speaks to a Homesick America

In 2007, in one of the first episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri visited Patrick’s Roadhouse, a railway-station-turned-restaurant in Santa Monica, California. The diner’s chef, Silvio Moreira, walked Fieri through the preparation of one of Patrick’s most notable dishes, the Rockefeller—a burger topped with mushrooms, sour cream, jack cheese, and … caviar. Fieri, looking playfully trepidatious, lifted the burger with both hands, said a fake prayer, and did what he would proceed to do thousands of times on the show: He took an enormous bite.

A quiet day at the beach: Why I enjoyed my visit to Ocean Cay, the new MSC Cruises private island in the Bahamas

Looking down at Ocean Cay, MSC Cruises’ 95-acre private island in the Bahamas, I was initially underwhelmed. From my vantage point on MSC Seashore — the new MSC Cruises ship based at PortMiami — the beachy area looked a bit … sparse. Unlike some other cruise line private islands in the Bahamas, the new MSC Cruises getaway just 65 miles east of Miami wasn’t covered with waterslides, zip lines, splash areas for kids and all manner of family-friendly attractions.
