This is a sea day. But what I meant to say is that there are a lot of reasons why people fail to maintain their weight or lose weight on a cruise. Now, if the food is horrible, this is not an issue. If it is your first cruise with a particular line, your lack of status usually means that you are spared various offering of food and drink delivered directly to your cabin.
I might have already mentioned being happily surprised when the room service person came back with a number of bottles of water to replace the bottle of wine (sparkling?) that I had politely but firmly refused about the second day of the cruise.
Since then there have been various deliveries of
- plates of small snacky things
- plates of canapes
- a cheese plate
Today was the crowning glory –
Just in case you can’t tell – there is a dark chocolate shell, caramel sauce, a chocolate dipped strawberry with almond. Inside the shell is a coffee flavored mouse with a dusting of expresso on top nestled on a bed of chocolate cake crumb.
I can sit in the cabin, stitch, relax and pretend that I am not a little old grey haired lady!
