2019 World Cruise - Day 27

Tuesday 01.29.19 - Sea Day

I woke up early (6am) & started working on the blog, before going up to the buffet to grab some biscuits, bacon gravy, bratwurst & sausage links. 

10am Destination Presentation: Papeete. Join Destination Expert Deb Fraioli for information on our upcoming port. This was an interesting talk to a packed house.  She gave us a few tidbits about what to expect while in town.

11am Future Cruise Presentation
Tips, tricks & hints for booking your next Princess cruise, with Sandy, Future Cruise Consultant. Lots of ideas for new places to visit. 

11:30am Lunch Buffet

I had…
Salad - mixed greens, tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, ham, chicken, Parmesan cheese, red onions & honey mustard dressing.
Pizza - pepperoni, cheese, & pizza of the day

Ice Cream - Peach & Chocolate Chip

Shelly had…
Salad - I do like making my own salad where I can add the amount of cheese, olives, and meat that I want.  They offer a variety of dressings along with oil & vinegar.
Leg of Lamb - It was good, tender, rich lamb flavor.  I added mint jelly to complement it.
Chicken Fried Rice - this is really good, just like at any Chinese restaurant.  I added soy to my dish.
Pasta with Duckling Strips - Ehh, not my thing.

Lemon Cake & Watermelon - The watermelon was bright red, but lacked sweetness.  The lemon cake nearly melted in my mouth it was so soft and creamy with a slight lemon note.

1pm I talked to front desk about my damaged laundry. Came back to the room to work on Day 13 of our 2018 road trip.

I had…
Sweet Chili Spiced Shrimp - These were nowhere as spicy as advertised. That being said, I would order these again, due to them still being full of flavor.
Sweet Chili Spiced Shrimps, Cilantro and Fish Sauce

Chicken Satay - I wish they would season the chicken & that the peanut sauce had more depth.

Classic Shrimp Cocktail - always tasty

Burger - out of everything on the menu, this sounded the best. I was not disappointed. This burger was beautiful.

Ice Cream - a scoop of vanilla & a scoop of chocolate. 

I experimented with a drop of blueberry hot sauce & it was fantastic!

Shelly had…
Soup - "Chicken and Lemon broth soup I added more lemon to it that really enhanced the Asian flavors."
Chicken and Lemon Soup, Rice Noodles and Basil

Chicken Satay - "this is a bland, the peanut sauce is watered down, and the chicken doesn't seem to have any seasoning whatsoever.  I added chopped jalapenos and that helped."

Green Curry Chicken - "the flavors are mild, but good; however the color is a bit off putting.  If they added more coconut milk it would be more appealing."

Lemon Jasmine Rice

Thai Fried Rice - "This was tasty!  Great mild flavors with a little sweetness.  This does have cilantro and green onions, I added the green curry chicken on top and enjoyed these together.  Of course, I needed more heat so added jalapenos.  One table mate liked the dish so much he asked for a second bowl."

Chili Flakes and Fried Egg

Sugar-Free Cake - "just a hint of sweetness, with creamy yogurt."

King Kamekameha Party on Deck 9 - we stayed for a short time, but were too tired so we went to bed shortly after. I was so tired that forgot to take any photos.
