Cruise Food

Lindi here.

I just got back from a 4 night cruise. We went from Florida to the Bahamas and back. First of all I love being on a boat. Well, a cruise boat. They're big. And smooth. And, unless you run into bad weather, which we didn't, you don't even know you are on a boat.
Until you get off of it. We got off the boat Friday morning, drove about 9 hours home, then went to the hospital to visit a friend who had a baby, then we went to eat. (Like I didn't eat enough on the boat!!) But all evening I felt like I was on the boat. It's a weird feeling. I even felt it a little yesterday.
But this post is about the food--not the rocking feeling you don't feel on the boat but you do feel on land.
If you've heard all you do on a cruise is eat--well it's true. Or it can be true. It doesn't have to be. But there is food available, at no cost, almost 24 hours a day. The late-night pizza buffet quits serving at 5 am and I think breakfast starts at 6. And the food is good. But I recently found out I can't eat shrimp and I'm not a big meat person, so I ate a lot of pizza, pasta and bread. And now I think I'm fitting into my clothes tomorrow to go to work.
I'll let you know how that turns out later today. :)

Have you ever been on a cruise? Did you like the food? If you haven't what is your favorite food?

(Oh, and I would post pictures, but my computer keeps crashing every time I try to upload my photos. Yes, I'm looking at buying a new computer!!)

  1. I've never been on a cruise. I guess I'm deprived! :)

    Sounds like so much fun. Next time I suggest dieting before you go so you can eat all you want. It's already paid for! (That would be my problem. I'd want to get my money's worth! LOL)

  2. I find the same thing at all-inclusive resorts - food all the time and restaurants everywhere :)

  4. Missy--That's a good idea--not sure I could pull it off though. :)

  5. Eva-I haven't been to an all inclusive resort--but I hear they are fabulous. My step-daughter and husband are at one right now for their anniversary. They love them.

  7. Lindi, you know I LOVE cruising. And yes, there is so much food. However, I find there is a lot of activity to help offset all of the food. I love to go to tea time. I think that's the best food of all.
    As for feeling like you're still on the ship, I get that same feeling. Like I'm gently swaying. Guess it's called getting our land legs.
    So when are we gonna do a cruise together?

  8. I wanna know what tea time is? I've never done/or heard of that. Sounds interesting. And I'd love to do a cruise together...

  9. We took a cruise for our honeymoon. Loved it. Lost 5 pounds! We ate like crazy, but we also did the 12 mile bike ride tour, swimming, hiking, etc. We even missed a meal or two because we were having too much fun. But oh we never missed the midnight dessert buffet, lol.

    Then we tried to go with 3 of our girls on a cruise. But that ship caught on fire and we couldn't take it. We went to Mexico instead.

    I'd love to take another cruise. Maybe we should do a Faith Girls cruise!

  10. Tea time? That's literally another meal. Love tea time. Finger foods, teas of all sorts, and tasty treats.

  11. Ang, A F.A.I.T.H. girl cruise sounds awesome! And I'm bummed about missing the tea times. Sounds like something I would enjoy thoroughly!
