Lap of Luxury is for me!

Rex is telling me that we need to work at getting me back to reality after I was so spoiled on the Princess Cruise. Can you believe? I love being spoiled and provided for! Here are some pictures of the life of luxury I lived for 11 glorious days!

Drinks were in abundance....cocktail hours, dinner time, anytime!

This was our steward bringing a champagne brunch to our balcony. Below are the plates that were served to us:

We also had a fruit plate that we forgot to get pictures of (we were so busy eating and enjoying the gourmet foods). We had smoked salmon available for every meal, of course, it was Alaska!

This is a plate of the goodies delivered to our balcony mini suite cabin every afternoon around 4pm. Sometimes there were chocolate covered strawberries too.

The evening at the Chef's Table deserves a blog unto its own self but as a sampling here are some of the favorites of the night:

This is only the start of our desserts that evening. The white ball is made of strings of sugar as is the basket and the swirl going straight up. This is accompanying a chocolate mousse with soft strawberries center.
This was a spiked flame of beef, venison and veal, served with multiple sauces and accompaniments.

Flambe was also the order of the meal when we had Bananas Foster the first night in Fairbanks and Baked Alaska was the last night of the cruise. Wild Alaskan Salmon was readily available for choices at meals and I found Smoked Salmon Chowder to be one of my favorite things to order. We had crab legs, lobster, shrimp, halibut, caviar, reindeer sausage and everything else from fish and chips to bangers and mash to pizza to tartar! It was a fabulous feast whatever we ate!
