People look forward to the food on cruise ships. While Wilderness Adventurer is an expedition vessel designed for active adventures in remote places, a satisfying meal still plays a part in the enjoyment of the cruise. Or un-cruise since this is after all Un-Cruise Adventures, so named because the experience aboard these small ship adventure vessels is vastly different than that found on the large cruise ships.
On our cruise on the Wilderness Adventurer they served breakfast and lunch buffet style and dinner in sit down and order fashion. Each meal brings about several choices, with the day’s menu shown on one channel of the stateroom TV.
Early breakfasters can choose from continental breakfast selections of cold cereal, fruit, a variety of breads, and yogurt. Later hot food selections are added, which vary daily with things like pancakes or frittatas, potatoes, eggs and bacon or sausage, and oatmeal. People work up an appetite on daily adventures like hiking or kayaking.
On our cruise they put a list of the dinner main dish choices out at the bar so people could pre-select, which would help them greatly in knowing how much of each thing to cook.
If people didn’t choose ahead of time they could still order what they wanted. They normally offered a meat choice, a seafood choice, and a vegetarian option. The favorite among a number of passengers often was half & half. With most people that meant half meat, half seafood, but vegetarian worked as one of the halves too if that was what someone thought sounded good.
The menu at each meal changed every day and the pastry chef added delightful breads and desserts.
