Alaskan Cruise 2018 - Day 7

Tuesday May 29th, 2018

Today was a short port day where we visited one of my wife Shelly's favorite ports, Ketchikan, Alaska

Of course, we started with breakfast in the main dining room. 
Blueberry pancakes with sausage, bacon, plus his & hers danishes

After breakfast we had a blast sight seeing on our private tour with Bernie of Orca Song Tours.  (If you would like to read Shelly's TripAdvisor review, it can be found here.) We took over 100 photos. Here are some samples:

Once we were back on board, we ate lunch at the Prego Pizzeria..
Special pizza of the day was Potato, Bacon & Brie. I also got a slice of pepperoni & a slice of cheese pizza

After lunch, my niece Katie, won a foam thumb during the 60 Second Frenzy game.

I'm sure you can guess what happens next... That's right, nap time! 😀 Then it's off to dinner in the main dining room.

A great dinner starts with a great beer

 This here was a tasty appetizer. I wish I had ordered a few more.
Panko Crusted Dungeness Crab Cake
roasted chili & lime aioli, lemon dressed rocket

This was the soup that my wife ordered. She seemed to really enjoy it.
Roasted Garlic Cream Soup
sage and cheese croutons

Our waiter was amazed that I ate the crawfish on this next dish. He tried to convince me that it was just a garnish. Little did he know that I grew up with Cajuns that boil crawfish on the regular, so I learned to pinch tails & suck heads from an early age.
Cold Smoked Alaska Salmon and Crayfish Tails
tomato-vodka marinated crayfish, dilled cucumber & caper salad

You regular readers of my HungryHeath Facebook page, know that I am a burger addict. If there is a burger on the menu, I'm usually going to order it. Alas, this burger sounded better than it tasted. I was a little disappointed.
Princess Gourmet Beef Burger
reindeer chili, pepper jack cheese, French fries

Here is the entree Shelly ordered. She let me taste the tomato side dish. It was something I had never heard of. It was pretty damn good. I think we will try making them at home sometime.
Chicken Paillard with Amber Ale & Onion Gravy
butterflied grilled chicken breast, gratinated tomato, glazed carrots

 Folks, my wife's obsession with souffles, rivals that of my burger addiction. If it's on the menu, she too HAS to order one.
Decadent Drambuie Souffle
pear anglaise
 Just a basic ice cream. A nice end to a decent dinner.
