Lunchtime was always a highlight of the day. You never knew what was coming only that it would be delicious and there would be many choices. In this post, I wanted to give you a virtual taste of one of the lunches we had. I asked the chef in advance if I could come into the dining room early and take photos and he graciously allowed me to take all the pictures I wanted.
A few days before, I had taken photos of the dining room so I will also let you take a peek at the delightfully cheerful dining room. I especially loved sitting by the window in the morning as we sailed along, the sunlight reflecting off the river.
The Dining Room
Luncheon – A Variety of Delicious Dishes
There were always at least three or four unique salad combinations. I especially liked the ones with the added nuts.
Main courses – always choices of seafood, vegetable, and meat dishes plus white rice and a nontypical rice dish.
We loved the dessert as it is not something we eat on a daily basis. So many wonderful home-made treats – creme brulees and little custard dishes. I didn’t take a photo but there were always several kinds of cheeses and ship-made crackers along with all the different desserts.
The chef and the waiters were extremely friendly and the service was amazing. The chef was very flexible and would make any special dish you wanted. Breakfast was a buffet with a menu of specialty eggs cooked to order, hot cereals, and Asian dishes. Lunch was buffet style and dinner was sit down with a menu that usually included several choices from each category. Cocktails and specialty coffee drinks were available from the bar anytime. All in all, if you didn’t get enough to eat it was your fault. I know I did as the scales told me so when I came home!
