I MISS MY PRECIOUS SUGAR FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES :P
AHHHHHHHHHHH we are finally here, it was a smooth and traffic free 450 freeway to San Pedro. It was on a Sunday as well. Everybody has already arrived and at their labor day weekend vacay. No one was on the road. We all took the blue shuttle bus from Hollywood to San Pedro. It saved us from dealing with airport security.
It was another annual family vacay. It was my mum, my cousin, John (moneymaker), his gf, Ashley (sky_is _the_limit), his parents, my cousin, James’ (islanderinla) parents, 4 family friends, and me :D a grand total of 12 people.
Our cabins are not ready, we all just killed time at the dining area to arrange to have all of us sit together and also had some tea and coffee while we do so. We were all hungry. short thereafter our cabins are ready. We needed to drop off our belongings then head up to deck 9 to eat lunch. My cabin is cute as always, unfortunately, there is no window this time. I don’t hang out in my room anyways unless I am sleeping.
The buffet is yummy and overwhelming as always. I bee lined to the dessert area. I did not try the other desserts. I was looking forward to the sugar free peanut butter cookies. They have the best sugar free cookies I have ever had. There was a sugar free key lime mouse which I am not a big fan of the pie. I tried it anyway. It was not bad and tolerable.
The boat was not scheduled to set sail until 5pm. I went to deck 10 on the aft part of the ship to watch us leave.
Between that and before dinner, We just lounged near the pool and jumped in the spa. Shortly thereafter, John, Ashley and I just walked around all the decks to get familiar with all the different lounges. I also needed to know how close we are to the dining room and windjammer (buffet room). Both we discovered was nearby, it was an elevator away. There is always food wherever we turned. However, I took a bowl of sugar free peanut butter cookies with me in case a have the midnight munchies. I would rather eat that than fries and hamburgers at deck 9 at the solarium café.
We had second seating, which started at 8:30pm, cruises’ are notorious to have you over eat. I always over in “2’s”, 2 appetizers, 2 entrée and 2 desserts, Sometimes one of each depending on the protein and if I like the sugar free dessert, and tonight I ordered just that.
Smoked fish tapenade �" sweet onions, tangy capers and fresh herbs complement this fish dish; served with a golden brown crostini.
Vidalia onion tart �" sweet Vidalia onions combined with nutty gruyere cheese, then in a buttery crust: served with a leek fondue and sautéed red pepers.
