High tea on the cruise.

This post is a continuation of my Cruise to Alaska I , II, III and IV. One of the things we enjoyed most on the cruise was having high tea in the formal dining room.
The tea room was filled with beautiful pastries...

 Chocolate masks..

Assorted tea sandwiches...

 Ice carvings...

 And fruit carvings.

It was a hard choice to pick what to eat. Everything looked so tempting.

Most delicious of all ...the ocean view. Sipping tea while watching the ocean waves and occasionally even a school of killer whales playing was a sight to behold.

I am joining Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday

  4. Hi Komali,

    thank you for your sweet comment. Yes, I loved the Cherimoya fruit, it was delicious because ripe. We get them here in Germany also but often not really ripe. We say it taste like strawberrys with cream. Anyway, the taste is very nice.
    Your Alaska Cruise must have been very nice. The glimpse on the buffet is very tempting. Looks very nice and I am totally with you, hard to decide what to eat.
    Thank you for sharing your impressions with us.
    Greetings, Johanna
