Most of you know that Dimitris and I just returned from a western Caribbean cruise. One of the most exciting aspects of the cruise was the cuisine, hence my blog title (I do love playing with words).Yes, although a large number of the travelers on the Veendam were “ancient mariners,” everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The ports of call were interesting but not spectacular. It was more the on-board experiences that were most exciting. We were traveling with best of friends who made wonderful travel companions, as always. The entertainment was above average with one magician/singer extraordinary. He was able to link his magician tricks with Hollywood movies as the backdrop. For instance, he began crooning “Singing in the Rain” dressed in the attire Gene Kelly wore in the movie and emptied buckets of water into a pail long after the bucket should have been empty. I had all of my favorite foods: prime rib, Baked Alaska, rack of lamb, jumbo shrimp, French onion soup, etc. The weather could not have been better leaving a wonderful taste in our mouths for another cruise one of these days.
