Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1
It probably isn’t a secret that food on a cruise can be pretty amazing. It can also be known as being pretty rich or fattening. I figured that I’d do a lil bloggie post on my experience with cruise food on the ship!
1st of all.. here are some foodie pictures from some of my meals:
You can definitely eat unhealthy while on a cruise but you can definitely eat healthy if you want/try.
For each meal you have the choice to eat at the cruise’s restaurant or at the buffet. For breakfast and lunch I would typically eat at the buffet because it was quick and right by the pool.
For breakfast they had oats, grits, bacon, scrambled eggs, assorted pastries, fruit, and an omlette station. They also provided oj, apple juice, water and coffee.
For lunch they would set up a panini station, a salad bar, and a hot buffet of different foods each day. They also had a full dessert bar and offered lemonade, coffee, unsweetened tea, and water.
Dinner was different each night but was accommodated to everyone. You could always have an appetizer like salad, fruit, or what ever the chef made. Grilled chicken, fish, beef, and a vegetarian option was offered each night and some in may forms. (Ex: Fried chicken or grilled chicken, 3 different kinds of fish, pasta.. etc!) Dessert was also provided as well as a diet dessert made with a fake sweetener.
My remarks: I enjoyed all of the food and I loved the 24/7 access to any food (plus room service!) The only thing I can complain about is that many of the dinners didn’t have a lot of veggies and sometimes the vegetarian option focused on pasta + cheese instead of veggies!
I ate dessert with either lunch and dinner every single day and LOVED it! (You all know how I love to bake) I got a lot of ideas of things I would like to re-create. I tried SOME of the diet desserts and honestly, I wouldn’t recommend them.
So the moral of the story is that a cruise can be a foodies dream and it can be a healthy person’s dream to because of the many options 🙂
What has been your experience with food on vacation?
I eat what I want because I know that I eat fairly healthy at home; if I gain a few pounds I know they will come off as I go back to my regular eating habits.
