These photos were all taken on day 6 of my Mediterranean Cruise in 2022. Today was an at-sea day & I spent all day on board the Costa Toscana.
Read about day 6 of my cruise.
Me, Alan Morris, in my cabin before going to dinner on the Costa Toscana. Because my legs were so swollen & painful this was the only time I did not wear shorts & put trousers on, for my entire holiday.
This was the starter for my dinner today, it is a semi-smoked salmon tartare with cream cheese.
This was my first course for dinner today, it was one of the ship´s ´destination´ dishes created by a world-class chef. It was chickpea soup with braised salami, peppers & a prawn, it was ok but the worst of all the soups I had on board I didn't think it was special at all.
This was my main course today. It was veal cheek stewed in Chianti wine, served with mashed potato & rosemary. My plate seemed to have a baby squid on it as well which looked horrible & I left it. The veal was very good.
This was my dessert at dinner today. It was a yoghurt cake with pears & ginger served with vanilla sauce. It was very ordinary & tasted like a plain fairy cake like my grandma used to make, I couldn't taste any pears or ginger in it.
