|Princess Cruises Breakfast Buffet|
Everyday, we'd wake up not having to rush. No school to rush into, meals to prepare and pack or get everyone on their carseats. We'd just walked up to the breakfast area at a leisurely pace. I wish to say glacier pace like Meryl Streep did in The Devil Wears Prada, but glacier might not be appropriate for a cruise. Yes, no glacier please.

The breakfast buffet menu didn't change for all the 7 days we cruised with Princess but it didn't matter, because there was so much variety that I really didn't have to eat the same thing everyday. Although I partly did except maybe for the eggs as they served all the different kinds, you can pretty much pick one kind a day.
|breakfast.. I'm hungry now!|
Let's see, I know they cooked all the different ways you can cook eggs, but is there 7 different kinds for the 7 days? They have Eggs Benedict, Sunny Side Up, Omelette, Hard-Boiled Egg, Scrambled Egg and Quiche. Hmm.. okay, I only got 6. Maybe a frittata and deviled eggs should have been in the mix. But seriously, their quiche is a must have, I wish I have one right now.
What's easier, making a quiche or packing the kids luggages and heading back to the cruise?
|sausage or bacon?|
I also ate a bagel everyday, I never have to toast it myself either. Someone was in charge for toasting the breads everyday. With Carnival you have to do it yourself and if there's a huge breakfast crowd so you'd have to wait. I also liked that they have congee, although I tried not to eat a lot as lunch is just a few hours away, especially since we woke up late everyday. There's in between snacks too at the International Cafe, yikes. And if you're curious, Dinner on Princess Cruises is also a lot. Make sure to check our Princess Cruises Menu and Food Pictures.
