Question of the day:

What is on your vacation plans horizon?

Planning anything in your head?
I'm looking at another Freighter cruise for the summer. I'll go to Iceland or Portugal if I have the time (tough choice!!) or Sweden if I'm strapped - these all sail from UK ports. I had such a great time in 2005 that I want to go again - it's wonderful getting a Bridge-eye view of the world!!

LOL Richard! We have excellent Fish & chips here too....but for me the most important thing is what kind and how fresh is the fish? Never frozen! Here we use haddock, cod, scrod and other white fish. I like it when I know it was caught that day. :)
White fish is the standard here but it's definitely frozen and I doubt it's landed the same day let alone caught then - although Birmingham is in the middle I bet it goes to London first! (the best fish I've had is mackeral fried in butter within an hour of being caught - delicious)

Where is chuck...lol
No I am only kidding
What one thing did you not enjoy on the ship ?

and be honest....
Lisa---- I have to agree with you on this one. The lack of creativity and selection on the desserts was very noticable. The one thing I did like was the ability to get the Melting Chocolate cake every night!!!! I do LOVE that. Denise

I was not in facor of the entire wait for OK food thing...but the pasta at the buffet....Hmmmmm..and that wonderful bread! Yum!
Fish and Chips...El Yucko!
Karyn did you try the bouillabaisse? We thought it was pretty good...... and maybe when you had the Fish and Chips it was an "off time" for them- when we had them they were fine..... not quite as crisp on the batter as I'd like, but flaky and tasty... Denise

You are right on the consistency...... some nights it was more like cake and others, more like melted fudge. Seems like they needed some regulating on it- but yes, it was always good- no matter what the consistency.
