R and I got back on Sunday from a 9 night Caribbean cruise. It was Saturday, the night before the end of the cruise and a woman in the elevator sighed, “I can't believe I have to go back to a ton of snow.” I inquired where she was from and she told me, Foxboro. I was not spending my vacation watching the weather channel, so I had no clue about the foot and a half of snow that awaited me. By some miracle, we were on the one flight that left for Boston on Sunday (the two before us and the one after us were all canceled).
But, enough about that, this is a blog about food. So how was the food on the boat? Pretty mediocre. Cruise food, is like all institutional food (hospitals, school cafeterias, airplanes); it's hard to maintain quality when you are cooking for 2,200 people. That said, this is our fourth cruise and Norwegian definitely had the worst food out of all our previous cruises.
We did have lunch at a restaurant called Roti Palace in Tortola. There was one room with 3 or 4 small tables inside and a larger communal table outside. We were the only ones there. We had a chicken roti, as the guidebooks had recommended. It was good, but nothing extraordinary. I was basically a West Indian curried chicken version of a burrito.
