Food, glorious food...a "not to do" on a cruise

Friday, October 18, 2019

I haven't stopped gathering my pictures from our trip but I've grown temporarily tired of reliving it! My children and spouses have not cruised or done scheduled tour so I promised them pictures of food. My one SIL is a prodigious eater so he enjoyed my updates sent when I have cell service. Here are some pictures of the bounties offered both in restaurants and buffets.

Some kind of "bombe" dessert my BIL enjoyed (x2)

Creme Brule

Crab dinner

Yes, he did. 3 of 4 nights in the fancy restaurant. The waiters were hysterical in their response to his requests!

Then there's the buffet. It is all up to YOU to make good choices!

You could have your choice cooked your way


I'm not hungry now!

    Yes, I suffered from a fair amount of guilt on our Alaskan cruise w/Mom & Dad - talk about "overconsumption" taken to the MAXX!!!
    But OTOH, I think everyone should experience such luxury at least once in their lives...
    My cousin ("surrogate brother") & his wife had a hard time dealing with the crowds on their recent cruise, so he declared that would be their LAST ONE - he of the quadruple bypass, who needs to lose 15 lbs before a surgeon will touch venous reconstruction on his legs (He's had problems where they harvested grafts for his bypasses.)

    Yum! It all looks delicious. I’ve been on the Forks Over Knives plan + fish for 11 months now. Lost 20 pounds without logging my food - yayyy! I could eat the fruit, nuts, and crab pictured.

    Great food pictures!! I've never been on a cruise -- and yes, I've been concerned about what people report with respect to the tempting arrays of food!!!

    Staying at birding eco lodges last winter in Panama and Trinidad where meals were prepared for us was something I feared but actually worked quite well. And triggered the intuitive eating experiment!!

    Gotta say, however -- nothing so lavish was on offer . . . really pretty basic local fruits/veggies/proteins.

    Tons of food, many choices! I love to eat, I appreciate trying something new...that I didn’t have to prepare. Yikes, on processing that many options. No wonder you’re not hungry...

    I'm an eater too, from way back. I like the food pictures. I don't get to eat at fancy restaurants that serve things like the bombe thing. My hubby doesn't like places like that. His response to something fancy like that would be, "WTH is this??!!!" He thinks that any place that has a tablecloth, cloth napkins, and real silverware is slapping on major $$$ to your bill. I have not seen a table cloth in years. You want fries with that? So there has been no Creme Brule. No crab dinner. Hubby does look a little like the monkey though.
