Sailing and working on one of the most beautiful Cruise Ships

Yes I am bad, I have not written in one month and feel bad about that. I have been busy but just need to make a little more time to write. So what I will do now as well is just to tell you where I am and what I do, then of course still the recipes, but I want to tell you a little bit about the life at sea.

As you know, I am working on the beautiful Celebrity Mercury, a wonderful ship and we have every cruise around 1800 guests. Nowadays that is considered small, but yes we are still producing over 9000 meals a day. The great thing is that we make everything fresh, this is nice for a chef as we love to work with fresh products.

We are sailing out of Baltimore and then doing trips to the Caribbean, usually between 9 and 12 days. I love this length of cruise as one has everything, a couple of relaxing days at sea, then some islands and then some relaxing days again. So I will tell you a little more about the where abouts and what one can do on the ship and of course what we do on the ship. Ship life is very interesting and there is never a dull moment.

So anyway, we are sailing into Baltimore once again, a lovely city just a stone throw away from the port. I will sit down and tell you more in the next Blog. As for now, I am off to bed, there was a talent show  this morning, then  we did a cooking show, just after that we had something called an Officers Picnic where the officers stand behind the buffet and serve the guests, a lot of fun. Then we had a Cruise Critics Lunch, specially for all the guest who are part of this Blog Site. We usually do a lovely lunch always ending with a nice and scrumptious Chocolate Souffle....yes there will be a recipe of it....sometimes, you need to keep on reading.

So I see you all soon again



  1. can't wait to hear more about this venture! sounds exciting!!

  2. There will be more, I think one has always a bit quieter times in writing and then the more busy times, so there will be a lot more. Thanks a lot for reading the Blog!
