American Undersea Warfare Center in Galveston, TX

Side view of the USS Stewart. The Stewart is an Edsall class destroyer at the American Undersea Warfare Center at Seawolf Park in Galveston, TX.

The American Undersea Warfare Center located at Seawolf Park in Galveston, Texas is an amazing experience. Containing both a World War 2 destroyer and a submarine, this park lets kids and adults alike experience history. You can climb through almost every part of both ships with excellent informational displays. While you do need to be reasonably physically fit to enjoy the experience, we went with our kids before our June 2017 cruise. We very much look forward to the chance to go back.

La King’s Confectionary in Galveston

La King’s Confectionary in Galveston, Texas. Go hear to know exactly what it feels like to be a kid in a candy store.

You have heard the expression “kid in a candy store,” but you probably don’t know– don’t really know– what that means. Old school candy stores a a dying breed, and it is hard to find a master of the craft. Happily, a few old school candy stores are still around. La King’s Confectionary in Galveston is the grand champion of the bunch. As a bonus, you are probably in Galveston on a day when it is hot outside, and delicious ice cream treats are always a good idea in that case. Continue reading “La King’s Confectionary in Galveston”

Royal Caribbean Main Dining Room Menu Pimiento

Pimiento dinner menu in the main dining room on Royal Caribbean. The note saying “Exclusive to suite guests” only applies to room service orders. This was the menu for everyone at dinner.

The Pimiento main dining room menu (MDR) on Royal Caribbean looks really good, and I was cheering for it to be great. In the end, it was fine. This post is the last in my series about MDR menus on our June/July 2017 cruise, and I was generally impressed with the high quality of the food. Sadly, this meal was just OK.

Jasmine menu for lobster night on Royal Caribbean

The Jasmine menu in the Main Dining Room on Royal Caribbean. This was served on the sixth night of our Summer 2017 cruise. The note “Exclusive to Suite Guests” only mattered for room service. This was the menu for all guests in the main dining room.

Our cruise on the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas started on June 25, 2017. The second formal night was night 6– we had just finished a fantastic day in Cozumel, and we all got back aboard in time to enjoy dinner in the main dining room (MDR). I admit that it is a bit hard to get excited about a formal evening as one is pouring oneself out of SeƱor Frogs on the pier, but we gave it a go. It is a good thing we did, because this was lobster night! Continue reading “Jasmine menu for lobster night on Royal Caribbean”
