2019 World Cruise - Days 34 & 35

Tuesday 02.05.19 - Sea Day

For some reason I was wide awake at 7am, so I began working on the blog.

8:30am pastries & melon from the breakfast buffet

11:45am Cruise Critic Luncheon

Fried Calamari - perfectly fried & always tasty. We added some Crimson hot sauce to the cocktail sauce to give that extra kick of spice.

Arrabiata - specialty spicy pasta offered and we both ordered as an app.  This is my favorite pasta they make, love the spicy sauce!  The head waiter makes it fresh to order.  I really wished they offered this more often.

A little Crimson to kick it up a notch

Tortellini - This dish is a little bit oily & I'm not sure what the mystery meat filling is, but it's good.

Chef’s Salad - Shelly says that this was really a great salad.

Chocolate Cake - Moist cake, but the frosting is the best part!

5pm Nibbles: Herb-Marinated Goat Cheese with Crispy Rosemary Flatbread and Tomato Bruschetta

7pm MDR Formal Dinner #6

I had…
Classic Shrimp Cocktail - simple but tasty

Gnocchi - I wasn’t sure what to expect with this dish. I was pleased with how good it was. I liked how soft the noodles were.

mushroom cream, tomato oil

Lobster tails & lemon raviolis - This was the first time I tried the ravioli. I was pleased to find that the lemon was not overpowering. My lobster was perfectly cooked. 
Lemon Ravioli, Lobster Tail, Cognac Bisque
green beans, fresh herbs

Chateaubriand - I added this as a sort of DIY surf & turf. I loved the fork tender cuts of meat.

madeira essence and bernaise sauce, yellow squash, carrots and berny potatoes

Once again, none of the dessert options really interested me so I had a couple of scoops of ice cream.

Shelly had…
Crab Souffle - this is so yummy! Creamy almost like a thick cheese with bits of crab then topped with more cheese and broiled.  This is a must have, every time!

dry sherry red pepper cream

Lobster tails & lemon raviolis - the tails were succulent as usual served with warm clarified butter, the raviolis were large and I got 2 on the plate a nice hint of lemon.

Souffle dessert - decent, but a bit too sweet for me.

We crossed the International Date Line, resulting in us losing this day, but they forgot to tell the elevator 😊
