Dinner at Tropicana Dining Room on board the Norwegian Getaway

On our last night on board the Norwegian Getaway seven-day cruise trip, we dined again at Tropicana Dining Room (we had dined here a total of three times for dinner on the cruise).  After watching the first half of the animated movie Inside Out in the atrium, we left early in order to line up for dinner at Tropicana Dining Room.  (We learned that for our big group, if we didn’t line up early, we wouldn’t get a table.)

Since it was the last night on the cruise, some of the people from the other groups dressed up in formal wear and nice dresses.  Our group didn’t plan on doing that so we looked out of place a little bit.  I kind of wish we did plan on dressing up so that we could have taken some nice photos.  I’m sure we can do that next year though.  We certainly did that last year on the cruise! 🙂

Dinner was a bit awkward that night at first because some of us didn’t know where to sit and we were waiting for some people.  In the end, we decided to just start ordering food because if we didn’t, it would have taken the kitchen a long time to serve us.  We had already arrived early too to beat the usual dinner rush.

As usual, Alice, Melissa, and I shared our food that night so that we could try a lot of what the dinner menu had to offer! ^_^

We ordered four appetizers: Crab & Cheese Soufflé, Cheese & Bean Empanadas, Beef Carpaccio, and Provencal Seafood Bisque.

Crab & Cheese Soufflé

Crab & Cheese Soufflé
-shellfish sauce, cucumber, spinach, basil

The Crab & Cheese Soufflé was perfection!  So soft and cheesy and flavourful.

Cheese & Bean Empanadas

Cheese & Bean Empanadas
-picante avocado sauce

The Cheese & Bean Empanadas was pretty good and the picante avocado sauce and salad were authentic too.

Beef Carpaccio

Beef Carpaccio
-basil oil, arugula, parmesan cheese

The Beef Carpaccio was also perfection.  The slices of beef were sliced so thinly!  It was so flavourful and well-seasoned.  Yum!

Provencal Seafood Bisque

Provencal Seafood Bisque
-salmon & shrimp quenelles, mini croutons

The Provencal Seafood Bisque was not enjoyed by the others since they thought it was too salty.  I, on the other hand, really liked it and the whole pieces of salmon and shrimp in it too.

Whole Roasted Prime Rib

Whole Roasted Prime Rib
-baked potato: sour cream, chives, bacon; corn on the cob, broccoli, creamed horseradish, beef jus

We only ordered one main to share among us three this time: Whole Roasted Prime Rib.  It was soft and fatty and pretty good for medium rare.  Yum.

Nothing else on the menu stood out in terms of entrées so that’s why we only got one main dish.

Palermo Calamari

Palermo Calamari
-linguine, basil oil, taggiasca olives

(But we did try a bite from Sarah’s Palermo Calamari and it was absolutely delicious!  The portion was actually so decent for one person too; not big at all which was important for carby linguine.)

For dessert, we ordered five to share.  Haha. 😀  We ordered Bananas Foster, Chocolate Panna Cotta, Passion Fruit Soufflé, Tiramisu all’ananas, and Chocolate Chip Cookie & Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich.

Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster
-dark rum sauce, vanilla ice cream

The Bananas Foster dessert was delicious with vanilla ice cream and banana.  It was so simple but tasted so good.

Chocolate Panna Cotta

Chocolate Panna Cotta (no sugar added)
– lime zest, raspberry sauce

The Chocolate Panna Cotta was all right and chocolaty.

Passion Fruit Soufflé

Passion Fruit Soufflé
pineapple & mango sauce

The Passion Fruit Soufflé was decent.  It reminded me of the soufflé from the other night.

Tiramisu all'ananas

Tiramisu all’ananas
-basil & agave syrup, violet crystals

The Tiramisu all’ananas was quite good!  The difference of this tiramisu was that it was more fruity than the usual ones.

Chocolate Chip Cookie & Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich

Chocolate Chip Cookie & Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich
-raspberry coulis, gianduja sauce

Nobody liked the Chocolate Chip Cookie & Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwich because the cookie was too hard.  However, once I got a piece of it, I thought that the chocolate chip cookie was so good and not too sweet that it fit so well with the vanilla ice cream.  Yum!  I really enjoyed this one :).  (Gianduja sauce is “sweet chocolate spread containing about 30% hazelnut paste”.)

And that was all for dinner.  Since our portions of food weren’t that intense, I didn’t feel too full that night.

After dinner, we went back to our room to pack a bit first before we went to watch the Farewell Show at the theatre.  Thanks for tuning in to read all about the dinners we had on the cruise!  Stay tuned for the rest of my Norwegian Getaway 2016 cruise blogs because I still have more blog posts about the rest of the things we did on the cruise! 😛
