Throughout the rough day at sea, my dad spent most of the afternoon napping, and 5 of us were able to make it to dinner. Matt’s mom was still feeling a little woozy, so she opted to sit out the dinner and stayed in the room resting.
Several of us started with the Spinach and Raspberry Salad: Tender Spinach tossed with fresh Raspberries, toasted Pine Nuts, and crumbled Gorgonzola and a Raspberry Vinaigrette
Another appetizer choice, North Atlantic Lobster Ravioli: With roasted Garlic and sweet Basil scented Tomato Juice
This was Matt’s choice: Ahi Tuna and Avocado Tower: With Crispy Noodles and Wasabi Dressing
Main course time! This is the Pearl-Barley Cakes with Shallots, Leeks, and Rosemary: Over sautéed Julienne of Carrots, Root Celery and Leeks with a light Saffron Saucel
Slow Roasted Prime Rib: Thyme-roasted Vegetables, Double-baked Potato, Horseradish, and Natural Jus
This was my entree, and ended up being my favorite dish of the entire cruise! Pan Seared Sea Bass: With Fava Beans and Pea Risotto and a sweet Chili Glaze
Dessert menu time!
My mom ordered the Sacher chocolate torte with apricot sauce. Looks delish!
Matt’s dad ordered the Banana Foster Sundae with rum-glazed bananas, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel sauce!
Passion fruit curd tart – topped with toasted vanilla meringue and orange candy sauce.
Strawberry cheesecake, with whipped cream and fruit coulis
After dessert, our server Lily brought us this plate with a little message to take back to Matt’s mom. There are 5 Mickey heads to represent the 5 of us, sans one!
