Carnival Glory Cruise Day 6: Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos

Grand Turk… the last port of call on this Carnival Glory voyage.  Grand Turk was actually the only port of the four that I had visited previously, so I wasn’t super highly motivated to do a shore excursions on land.  I ended up spending most of the day shopping in port — one of my favorite activities!  Afterwards, I stopped by the gorgeous beach, with clear, blue-green waters and warm sand, lined with bright green palm trees, that was literally right in front of the ship!

Dinner in the evening featured the second of two cruise elegant nights.  Time for an American Feast!

Day 6: Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos
Dinner: American Feast, cruise elegant

Appetizer(s)
Chesapeake Crab Cake: Herb remoulade

Rating: Good, pretty tasty.  FYI, crab is one of my favorite types of seafood, especially blue crab.

Four Season Salad: Lettuce, corn, cucumber, tomato

Rating: Below average.  The salad was fresh, but seemingly unadorned.  What it lacked was some volume.  Obviously, it didn’t live up to my expectations.  Also, the turnips arrived unannounced and uninvited.

Entreé(s)
Dual of Filet Mignon (Medium Rare) and Beef Confit: String beans, red wine sauce

Rating: Okay, but surprisingly, the savior was the beef confit.  The filet was more like a petite filet — and also overcooked.  The filet itself as a filet would’ve rated below average by my standards.

Teriyaki Salmon Fillet: Sesame rice cake, vegetable medley

Rating: Good.  Surprisingly, this was good!  The fish was juicy and tasty, and so was the sesame rice cake.  Even the veggies were good.  Definitely would’ve preferred this to the overcooked filet (bleh).

Tomorrow’s post will feature the last dinner of my Carnival Glory cruise, so be sure to check back soon!
