Carnival Cruise Line has become one of our favorites. Carnival Sunshine was a fun-filled adventure in the summer of 2014. My daughter M, her friend A and my dear friend L and I had a ball for 7 nights. It could not have been a more perfect vacation for us girls. We sailed out of Port Canaveral FL and our first stop was Nassau. We enjoyed some local shopping at the Nassau Straw Market. Always a deal to be had!
Warm Chocolate Melting Cake
1 pound Dark Chocolate
1 pound Butter
10 ounces Sugar
6 ounces gluten free flour
Melt the chocolate and butter. Mix the eggs with the sugar and whisk for a few minutes; add the flour. Combine the egg mixture with the melted chocolate and mix. Then pour into individual greased molds. Bake directly in the oven at 400°F for 14 minutes.
Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and garnish with fresh fruit. Serve warm with ice cream.
Photo Bombed! This was hysterical as the two guys from the photo department got in the action. M took a picture of just the two of us, but we all like the four of us better! Brings a smile to our faces each time we see it! The ship had a huge 4th of July celebration. Check out L’s bracelet, purchased at the Nassau Straw Market. So many pretty things were there to buy!
Day 6 was a stop at Grand Turk for a beach day. There were plenty of beach chairs to catch loads of sunshine. We brought our beach towels from our staterooms along with our large water bottles we brought from home. We filled them full of cool water right before we got off the ship.
Day 7 was another Fun Day at Sea. I discovered towards the end of the cruise that they had a design your own pasta dish restaurant during lunch. GF pasta, different delicious sauces to choose from, then topped off with a variety of fresh ingredients at the make-your-own-pasta bar Pasta Bella. Paired with a salad it was a fabulous and nutritious lunch! Wish I had know of it earlier. If you don’t feel like leaving the pool area you can just grab a burger with all the trimmings at Guy’s Burger Joint! So yummy! No GF buns, but the burgers and fries are completely gluten free. I did not get sick the entire week on the ship and can’t wait to travel with Carnival again and again and again!!
Sunshine wishes, Rose
