Food pics from Star Princess Alaska 8/18

Recommended Posts

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

 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.

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.

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.

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.
