Fab Food At Sea

I am, admittedly, a food snob. So, I was not going into the cruise with any real expectations about the food...other than the fact that it's readily available 24 hours a day, each and every day. But I have to admit that I was floored by the quality and inventiveness of the food, at least the dinners.

We feasted on minted melon balls drizzled with port, strawberry-thyme sorbets, peach-prosecco soup with fresh mint, lobster tails with lemon-butter, rhubarb gelato, braised halibut, chocolate mousse atop of chocolate brownie with an espresso-scented panna cotta, quail-venison terrine, king crab cakes with papaya coulis, and more.

I will say that I'm grateful that my boys have fearless palates. For a child with picky tastes, dinners would have been torturous. But Riley and Dylan ordered something new every evening and loved it! The cruise actually inspired my menu for a dinner party next week.
