Being a Foodie, Celebrity Cruise Style!

I’ve been a foodie at home, while road tripping and abroad. I’ve always been a foodie on land, well that was until we went on an Alaskan Celebrity Cruise this past summer. On a Celebrity Cruise, like others, you have the option to formally dine every evening on the ship. We took full advantage.

Below was just a sample of what I consumed at dinner the seven nights abroad the Celebrity Solstice. You name it I probably had it. The best part was that it was all-inclusive. I could have ordered the entire menu and they would have brought it to me. I did in fact order at least two appetizers, entrées and desserts most evenings. 🙂

Frog legs? They could have told me it was chicken and I would have believed them.

Oh I forget to mention the soup. I choose to start every meal with a bowl of French Onion covered in layers of cheese. 🙂

The presentation was outstanding. The wait staff was extremely knowledge making suggestions every step along the way. If you didn’t like something they would take it back and bring you something else quickly. Because of that I tried lots new things on the cruise, like raw scallops. Definitely prefer the cooked one sitting next to the lamb chop below.

Sometimes I didn’t order multiple things off the menu, but instead two of the same dish. Two Thanksgiving Day meals please!

I don’t know where I found the room to eat it all. I hadn’t even mentioned the continuous buffet they had going on morning, noon and night. Wound up in the buffet lines mostly in the early morning hours to load up on breakfast food. Poached eggs, omelets, corned beef and lots of bacon every morning sitting at the stern of the boat, perfect!

Being around the main dining area at dinner on the Celebrity Solstice resulted in so much good food being brought to the table with so little time to eat it all. 🙂

Have you ever been on cruise? If so, what was your eating philosophy?

Checkout the time I’ve spent being a foodie at home, while road tripping and abroad and on land.

  1. Wow. This is very interesting. I loved all the photos of the desserts! I love cruises and cruise dining also. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks! No problem, glad you liked. Getting hungry just looking at the desserts again. Miss the variety that cruise dining offers. 🙂

  2. I think the key to cruising is picking the right people to cruise with, some just aren’t cut out for it. Or making sure you all have the same agenda, i.e. doing excursions vs. relaxing on the sun deck. But def. great pics!

    • Definite agree with that to have the best time! Thank you. 🙂 Everyone was looking at be funny with my camera constantly out haha.

  3. Wow! I have been on a few cruises and haven’t really seen many meals like that! Alaska must be the place to go. You’re always making me hungry…For travel and food:)

    • That was my first. Knew there would be lots of food opportunities, but never imagined that. Gotta love travel! 🙂 Should stop posting food pics though, I’m constantly getting myself hungry haha. 🙂

  4. Celebrity definitely treats foodies well. I remember the first time a couple cruise veterans showed me the way to order on a cruise ship. Now, I think the waiter check his pencil before he comes to my chair. I counter it by taking the stairs, though. Great pictures and representations of what Celebrity serves.

    • Thank you! Love the fact that the formal dining room menu was different every night so could order and experience multiple new things each day. Pencil haha, sounds about right! 🙂 Still don’t know where I put all the deliciousness.

  5. That is some seriously good looking grub there. Awesome that it is all inclusive.
