My family and I are frequent cruise people (we have connections hoho). Cruising is all about eating! On the Princess Cruises and on most other cruise lines, there is a 24 hour buffet so you can literally sit there from morning and night stuffing your tummy. And in addition to the buffet, there are also sit-down lunches and dinners and cafes all around the cruise. Everywhere you go there's food.
The maximum capacity for the elevators is 15 people. Some guy said that capacity number is only for the start of the cruise (haha).
So the dinners on the Princess Cruise line is fancy and pretty good. The menu does differ from boat to boat but always have similar key menu items (yeah, we've been quite a few times).
So I'm gonna provide you guys with some food porn photos - cruise version and in three parts. It was almost a week's worth of eating, yay!
The boat bakes their bread fresh every morning! Delicious.
