Oasis of the Seas Best Food

As some of you may know, the Oasis of the Seas is the largest cruise ship in the world.  I had the pleasure of cruising on that ship the past week.  I have to say, it has to be seen in person to be appreciated.  Looking at pictures is remarkable, but being on the ship is another level of awe-inspiring.  The ship features things like FlowRider surfing simulator, ice skating rink, rock climbing wall, and the first ever Zip-Line at sea.  

One of the favorite things to do on cruise ships is to eat.  I admit, I stuffed my face every day (and enjoyed it).  Because there are over 20 dining options on the cruise ship, it is impossible to try them all in the span of one week.  Listed below are 5 of my favorite foods that I enjoyed in the past week, along with where you can find them, and a picture I took of them.  Hope it looks as good as it tasted!

Kummelweck Sandwich
Location: Park Cafe
Price: Free
Description: This Roast Beef sandwich is a guest favorite.  Slices of roast beef is piled in between a nice bun with salt and some seeds on top.  The secret Kummelweck sauce is hidden on the insides of the bun.  Perfect for lunch, or a quick snack.

Izumi Sushi Rolls
Location: Izumi Restaurant
Price: $6-$8 per roll
Description: I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of sushi from Izumi.  I have eaten a lot of sushi in my life, and these are some of the better quality rolls that I have had.  Shown in the picture is the Snow Crab California roll and Dragon Eel roll.  For those who love sushi, you have to give this place a try.  It is worth every cent.

Honeydew Melon Soup
Location: Opus Dining Room
Price: Free
Description: All of the chilled soups offered on board are delicious.  They remind me more of a smoothie, than a soup.  And I love smoothies.  Some of the chilled soups offered are Strawberry, Pineapple and Lychee, and the Honeydew Melon soup shown below.  After being in the hot sun all day, these soups are a perfect way to rehydrate at dinner.

Fisherman's Plate
Location: Opus Dining Room
Price: Free
Description: This was offered on our second formal night, and boy was it delicious.  Lobster tail is a staple of cruise ship dining, and the lobster tail here is one of the better ones that I have had.  The meat is succulent, and there is shrimp and some vegetables to help give the meal additional textures.  

Low Fat Mango Pudding
Location: Opus Dining Room
Price: Free
Description: I regret not ordering this dessert for myself.  This picture is of my mom's mango pudding, which was offered on the first night of our cruise.  I only tried a bite of this, but it was a bite I will remember for a long time.  The mango pudding is both soft enough to melt in your mouth, yet rigid enough to retain the ship as you pick it up with a spoon.  The flavor is light, yet distinct.  It is the perfect dessert for people who want a delicious end to a delicious meal.
