Cruising with the Grobmyers

We just got back from our first cruise.  We did it right too by making it a Disney cruise.  We were gone for a whole week.  That was a lot of really good food.  Some of it was a little fancy, some not so good, but for the most part it was very good.  I am sharing some pictures of some of the things we had while we were gone.  I don't remember all the names or what kinds of sauces there were on the plates.  The main thing I want to show is the pretty presentations.  By the end of the week my husband asked what is up with the stacking of the food.  You will see what I mean.
 Started the cruise out right with seafood for lunch.
 I tried this to see if it was something I might could make at home.  I think I could.  Thinly sliced cucumbers with carrots,peppers and zucchini inside.
 Tuna TarTar I think
 These raspberries were so good.  I could always take or leave them but really enjoyed the berries on the cruise.
 Prime rib.  The sauce was really good.
 Some kind of fish.
 I liked the little sampler plates of desserts.
 Sticky toffee pudding I think.
 I went to a cooking class and this is what the chef made.  Lobster ravioli.  I have the recipe but not sure I will ever make it.
 I loved the bread baskets at the Royal Court.  They were shaped like Cinderella's carriage.
 French onion soup
 Beef tenderloin
 Another sampler platter.
 A creme brûlée.  I don't remember the flavor.
 The bread baskets from Animator's Palette
 I don't remember what this was.  It was an appetizer of some kind.
 Chicken.  The chunks are pieces of sweet potato and beet.
 Tuna I think.
 This was a build your own pie dessert.  I was curious.  Little tart shell with raspberry in the bottom.  A little cup of chocolate mousse and another with a lemon filling.  The white dots are merengue dots. It was pretty good.
 I had this "soup" for lunch one day.  Tangerine soup.  It was a cold soup and pretty good.  Not a harsh citrus at all.
 A fruit tart.
 Apple strudel.  Joe went to a class on how to make that later in the week.
 This was a shrimp appetizer.  Very good.
 A sausage and lentil soup
 Turkey and dressing.  It was actually very good.
 Another fish dish.  Joe got his fill of fish.
 A cool cream of pineapple soup with toasted coconut.  Very good.
 This bread was interesting.  It looks camo.
 Beef empanadas.
 Fried chicken that was also good.  The biscuit was not a southern biscuit.
 A steak.
 Star Wars night and this was the Princess Leia dessert
 Another look.
 Macaroon.  Lemon and raspberry.
 The Star Wars buffet after the fireworks.  The watermelon carvings were pretty pretty.

 Special Star Wars desserts

 Hans Solo

 Lobster tail
 Parmesan chicken

 Our servers for the cruise.
 At Castaway Cay the watermelon carvings

 I showed this to show you the cute plates at Animator Palette.
 Beef Wellington

Baked Alaska.  I was excited when I saw this on the menu.  I have always heard of Baked Alaska and have wanted to try it.  It wasn't exactly like I thought it would be.

So you can see we ate well and tried some new things while we were on our cruise.
