One of the joys of cruising is the amazing food! I had been looking forward to it for weeks, and I wasn’t disappointed. The ship has lots of dining options, including a cafe, a buffet, the formal dining room and room service. I had even viewed the room service menu on-line here before we left! One of the other great joys of cruising is that there is also something your kids will like available as well.
Here is one meal in the dinning room.
I started with an appetizer of creamy mushrooms in puff pastry.
My husband had the fishermans salad, with shrimp, salmon and scallops.
My in-laws tried the cream of asparagus soup.
For main course, I had the prime rib, served with oven roasted root vegetables and baked potato.
My husband started eating his lobster tail before I could get a picture, but he said it was delicious 😉
For dessert, I had the cherries jubilee. Yum, yum.
My husband had the dessert trio, with a mini rum soaked sponge cake, a mini flourless molten chocolate cake, and mini cheese cake. Everything truly is better mini!
This was one of 12 nights worth of amazing, delicious food.
Another food highlight was the amazing fruit and vegetable carvings on the buffet tables. It’s amazing what a skilled person can do with a watermelon. I usually think melon balls are fancy!
Some of the displays incorporated all kinds of fruits and vegetables.
Incorporated in this buffet was an ice cream station. I love the simplicity of the big cardboard containers of chocolate and vanilla ice cream, surrounded by ice. This would work well for any at home ice cream bar, just on a smaller scale.
The food certainly was delicious, and all the wonderful new things I tried definitely inspired me for my next dinner party. I feel so very blessed that life is a party…at least when your fortunate enough to be on vacation!
