A Few More Images From Around the Ship

Good morning,

I have a few images today that I have taken around the ship. The image above and the next one are more of the great vegetable art that the culinary department produces.
There seems to be no end to the different designs I find from day to day.
The same is true with the towel art that our Stateroom Attendant, Diane, creates.
This doggie is one of our favorites.  I have saved him in our living room where he is now propped up watching TV with us.
This is a favorite afternoon snack here on board.  It is Norwegian waffle cakes with strawberries, ice cream, and whipped cream.  Oh, yum!
A much more elegant dish is the crab cake appetizer at Chops Restaurant.
Our daughter, Catherine, ordered the raw fish appetizer.  It looked delicious.
Somehow we got so busy eating the steaks and lobster that I didn't get any pictures of that, but here is the cheesecake dessert at Chops. 
A change now to the Captain's Corner talk.  That larger than life man on the screen is the absolutely best Captain, Captain Tor Olsen.  That is a screen shot in the theater of the video shown before the Captain's Corner question and answer session.
I saved the best for last.  This is our friend Greta celebrating her 302nd Royal Caribbean cruise while having dinner with Captain Tor Olsen.

I hope you've enjoy these few images taken around the ship.   

Very best,

WOW! I love the food art, and the towel art!

I think I might have to ask them if I could buy the towel doggie to take home with me...

Looks like a wonderful time is being had by all.

The food artwork is beautiful! Such talent. I love the towel animals as well. We stay at Sandals and the room attendants always delighted us with a darling towel critter! My favorite is a swan...

Lois, you have tempted us all with these food images. It seems a shame to eat the melon after its been so artfully prepared. The towel art is simply amazing - imagine doing that in our own homes when guests come to stay? Enjoyed the blues in Cozumel!

Good morning,

Yes, the veggie art is wonderful. It's never eaten, though. It is displayed until it is no longer "fresh" then it is discarded.

If you would like to take the towel art home, there are small versions available in the gift shop. They are about the size of beanie babies and are good replicas of the towel art made by the stateroom attendants. There are also towel art lessons given on the Royal Promenade during the cruises so you can learn to do it yourself. I still can't do it, but I certainly appreciate the ones other people make.

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by.

Very best,
