The food in Amsterdam is outstanding. We saw so many different types of pastries, but the savory food is great too with meats, fish, soups, stews and pastas. Here’s a sampling of some of the foods we came across:
Now you see another reason why we love Amsterdam so much!
The next stop on our tour of Christmas markets last year was Baden-Baden, Germany. This was a really special market place.
Just beyond the market was a unique display of artwork that was gorgeous.
Once again, the food got our attention, but not only the food, the restaurant itself. It was an enclosed porch of a beautiful hotel, but cold enough that they provided blankets at each chair. So nice and cozy with warm cider!
This is the final shout-out to the ship and crew of Crystal Cruises. We had the best time in the Caribbean and would certainly go again if we get the chance. Some of the passengers would remain onboard for another week, as they toured the Panama Canal, Colombia and other stops, but we couldn’t go the extra week (and had already been through the Panama Canal previously). So it was a sad farewell but the memories linger!
I had toured the ship’s kitchen one of the days at sea, and it’s incredible to see how they prepare all the great meals we enjoyed.
Again–wonderful staff members giving it their all. We ate in the Italian restaurant on our last night and the food and presentation here was also delicious and impressive.
