Longing to get ‘back on the boat’

By Patti Pietschmann, Travel Diva

Missing cruisesWhile we are all cooking more and eating out less I tend to dream about all those wonderful meals on cruises past.  Some luxuriously brought to our suite or stateroom. And others savored in elegant shipboard restaurants.  I miss happy hours at the bars and lounges mingling with fellow ship mates.  And only having to wrestle with  the menu, not the stove.

I also miss the butlers bringing breakfast in bed (Crystal and Silversea) and of course shows, shore excursions, fitness centers and spas at my beck and call, movies and books to catch up on and a whole lot more. But food makes the cruise go round and so the following.

A few favorite meals from past cruises to whet your appetite for future voyages

Crystal Cruises

These dishes are from the Nobu-inspired Silk Road.   I also threw in our favorite buckwheat pancakes which we always order for breakfast in the room.

Warning: this will make you hunger more for food and cruises.

Your mouths are probably watering about now. Mine is.  I can’t wait to get on board a luxury ship to sink my teeth once again into some of these glorious meals.
