Day 5 was "sea day". We started off with a light breakfast in the International Cafe.

Then we met up with the family to attend an interesting whale lecture hosted by Tess Julianna.
Afterwards, we all enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the main dining room...

basil, anchovies, balsamic reduction
|Thai Hot & Sour Soup|
shrimp, chili flakes, rice wine vinegar

Next, it was time for some family bonding via Passenger Feud & Jackpot Bingo...
After dropping the folks off back at their cabin, we retired to ours for a much needed nap. We awoke & decided to attend the early comedy show starring the hilarious Robbie Printz, before dinner again in the main dining room...

The food on Princess Cruises is so impressive. I would put this cuisine up against any dry land restaurant.
