  1. I got stung by a bee type thing, not sure what it was, out on the balcony on the Carnival Fantasy while we were out at sea.
  2. It would probably look like one of the lifeboats, LOL
  3. SS Carnivale, Carnival Cruise Lines, 1989 2nd was on the Fantasy in 1990 when it was New and the biggest ship afloat, funny now the biggest one is more than double that
  4. We went to Alaska in August- it was My DH, MIL and I. After multiple delays, we finally landed in Vancouver at about 3am. We did fly in the night before but we thought we would get there at about 1130 or something like that. We had booked a night in a hotel. When we landed, our Luggage was not there, they told us it was still in Toronto. My MIL had packed her carry on well, she had her PJ's, and a change of clothes (and undies) for the next morning as well as toiletries, etc. DH and I had to wear what we had on. My MIL's luggage didn't actually get put on the original plane for some reason, we found out the next morning it was still in Rochester. So it sucked but at least she had a change of clothes she could wash and wear the other one because her stuff didn't get to us until Tuesday afternoon (left on Saturday). So my advice...pack as much into that carry on as you can fit, LOL
  5. I meant to take pics of the menus each night but I kept forgetting. I did get one night and the Pinnacle Grill Menu. I'm pretty sure my husband took quite a few nights so if he did I will try to post them. They are on his phone and of course he is not home.
  6. We did 3 nights on Land after the cruise, 2 at the Princess Denali Wilderness Lodge The first night we didn't really eat dinner, we just snacked in the room, we ate on the train fairly late in the trip there. This was the dinner on the 2nd night Fish and Chips The night at the Princess Fairbanks Lodge Seafood mac and cheese, there was other seafood in there other than those shrimp on top, there were baby shrimp and some small pieces of some sort of fish, too. It was really good and filling.
  7. These are 2 from earlier in the week that I found on my phone, may have been the 1st night. This first one was my hubby's dessert, they were apple filled and that is a raspberry sauce This was a chocolate cake and some sort of ice cream Not 100% sure what flavor, but I ordered ice cream a couple nights, interesting flavors. It might have been a toffee or something like that.
  8. Last night-- Menu pics and then food pics will follow Hubby's NY Strip My Salmon, it was really good (I was nervous, because I am not a fan of hazelnut but I never even tasted it) This was a chocolate mousse type thing with pistachio This was Meringue "Islands" in a vanilla sauce. It was pretty good but really sweet.
  9. This was a chilled fruit soup, was really thick, closer to a yogurt type thing. I think it was apple but I don't really remember, it was really good, though but it's been almost 5 months. Those little brown things were fried grapes, they were interesting. This was some sort of a seafood salad type thing This was my Lobster tail with risotto, it was a very small piece but with the risotto and the other courses, it was enough, and it was really good. Hubby's Beef Wellington Baked Alaska
  10. Chilled soup (can't remember if it was peach or apricot) Shrimp and scallops, with veggies (I think that might have been pureed cauliflower but I'm not sure) Hubby's Spaghetti and Meatballs Limoncello Yummy Tiramisu
  11. I think this is the 2nd Formal night Shrimp Cocktail 2 views of my hubby's chicken (this is from the always available menu)-He enjoyed it Crab legs The cute little finger wash bowl they gave us for the crab juice on our fingers...
  12. 3rd night, dinner at the Crown Grill First are some pics of the menu MIL and I both got the Black Tiger Prawn and Papaya Salpicon (It was really good, basically just chopped up shrimp in a mayo type sauce) My MIL got the Salmon I got the Lobster Tail grilled with Garlic butter The waiter took it out of the shell for me Our side of grilled Asparagus Hubby's steak, I think it was the NY Strip (that's his fave cut) We all got the dessert sampler
  13. The second night, Formal night This is a quiche type thing with lobster, shrimp and Jack cheese, it was really good. Both my MIL and I got this My Bellini MIL and I both got this, too, it was shrimp, rice and veggies with a sauce, it was a little spicy but good. (I forget what it was actually called) My hubby's Beef dish Bananas Foster, odd presentation, I am used to seeing sliced banana
  14. Went on a cruise to Alaska in August with my Hubby and my MIL (Thankfully, I lucked out in the MIL department...) Decided to post my food pictures, Hope this works. This first one is a spring roll appetizer, the next ones are dessert from that first night (a chocolate tort or pie of some sort, I forget what it was called), MIL's Creme Brulee and the Chocolate Mousse Brownie thing from the always available menu
  15. I am not one that likes to carry a purse or bag most of the time so I normally would just have my camera and then pockets for everything else, LOL. My MIL gave me a great little cross body bag (not a tote bag or anything, just a little purse/type thing) for my Birthday this past year and I used it on our Alaska cruise that we went on in August. OMG this will be my go-to bag for all vacationing. Great that I had my hands free, it wasn't too big to manage. It held my cell phone (and I have a fairly large Samsung Galaxy), money, credit cards, the cruise card, and all of our other documents that we needed, even ear buds for the bus rides, LOL. My Husband wore a drawstring backpack that held water bottles and snacks. I do have a fairly large camera but I just wore that on a strap around my neck and it was fine.
