Climbing The Mayan Ruins And Eating A Full Course Meal While On A Seven-Day Family Vacation

In the beginning of our series, you were able to see the beginning of our seven-day adventure with Carnival Cruise Line as well as what we ate while stopping in Grand Caymans. If you missed part one, just click here to catch up! As our series continues, we make our next stops in Isla Roatan and Belize. While in Belize we were able to explore the Mayan Ruins. Although the ruins consisted of a remarkably long path to the actual site then an unusually intense flight of what were meant to be “stairs” when we got to the top we were blown away by the genuine beauty of the Ruins.

Whenever we travel, we love seeing historical sites and taking in the captivating scenery, of course before eating which is the number one thing we travel for. Cruising is not merely about the stops but making memories on the ship and the evening of our Mayan Ruin adventure elegant night was taking place which meant super fancy dining in our most elegant clothes.

Here’s what we consumed after our tiring day of exploring the Mayan Ruins:

The Appetizer


Stuffed Mushroom In Marinara
These stuffed mushrooms made the perfect appetizer because they were light and flavorful. The touch of parmesan cheese made it more delicious!

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆/5

The Dinner


Lobster Tail with Wild Rice & Grilled Shrimp
This was our first time having lobster tail and it was incredible. The meat was cooked just right and meshed well with the wild rice.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆/5

Chicken Milanese
Before this cruise we had never heard of this dish before and we were so happy to have tried it. The chicken was placed over a creamy sauce which set this right over the top!

Rating: ☆☆☆☆/5

The Dessert


Chocolate Mousse with fresh Raspberries
We have tried chocolate mousse before and have dislike it because of how intense the chocolate was however this chocolate mousse had such a light touch of chocolate especially blending it with a bite of raspberry. Having more raspberries would have made this perfect.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆/5

Strawberries & Cream
What a beautiful combination! This cream had such a fresh taste and the crunch really gave this dessert the right amount of umph!

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆/5

Elegant night menu options were some of the best options of the whole cruise. As dessert people we were very happy with what we had. The food on the Carnival Conquest cruise ship definitely topped the food on Carnival Victory which was the first ship we had been on.

Of course we couldn’t leave you without more pictures from our travels!
