LIVEish, 8 Days on Adventure (1/5/2019 or 5/1/2018 better yet January 5, 2019)

Recommended Posts

Trying to make up for some lost time. 

Theme for the night in Windjammer was Caribbean night. Mongolian Grill yet again was the made-to-order selection for the night.

 

Caribbean night selections

Getting a better look at what hides in the back corner of the picture above.

Yup, that is exactly what you think it is. Whole fried fish, labeled as grouper.

Wow, what a selection on last night's theme.

Time for a close up of curry goodness

Finally dessert bar

Plus the cake in a giant pan

Bonus feature for the night, Sangria. Not sure if it was the real deal made with wine.

What do you use for your photography, smart phone or digital camera? :27_sunglasses:

Primarily camera (Canon 7D MK II). Pictures without a watermark would be from my phone (S8+).

Pictures from the Old San Juan food tour were taken with my phone. Those were dumped into Lightroom Classic on my laptop for tweaking, cropping, and to resize.

Next a visit to the dessert bar

Wait, that is where the desserts usually are. Why is there a salad bar here? 

 

Ohhh, forgot to mention it is also Chocolate Buffet night.

Have to say, good use of what has been used as the salad bar this sailing.

 

Pictures for this recon were taken with my phone and tweaked in Lightroom. Good thing too, by the time I would have had a chance to grab my camera the chocolate buffet was showing major signs of battle damage. Also none of the chocolate buffet was self serve, crew members were assigned to various points to assist in serving guests.

Oh man.....I just can only say yum!   I could just eat dessert for dinner!  Jane

So far on this ship it pays to read your Compass. Bare minimum, do your own recon once Windjammer opens. 

 

Subject of Compasses, yes they will get scanned and sent to @Matt for publishing.

Playing catch up on last night's Windjammer Recon.

Theme of the night was Greek, Mongolian Stir-fry once again for the freshly made meal.

 

Opa! for the Greek selections. Only complaint would be the flow between getting the meat for the gyro and the pitas.

Normally I'll leave the giant pan dessert for later, but with it being a Greek themed dessert

Next up for tonight Indian selection, common them has been rice, Dal, vegetarian selection, and some type of meat.

Finally dessert, did sample the Key Lime Meringue pie. Had to say it seemed better than the Chops version.

Reporting a bit late the final Windjammer Recon for this sailing.

Theme for the night was American. Plus there were a few other bonus selections. Mongolian stir-fry once again was offered, only time it wasn't was the first night.

Overall I was impressed by the theme nights on Adventure. Was a bit disappointed by the small number Indian/curry options. But from what I'm recalling I don't think other ships were that much different. On thing I was surprised about was no daily steamed vegetable offering, everything was a grilled or roasted offering.
