Seabourn Cruise's Breadsticks Video...and A Lot More to See

First, enjoy this video on how to make Seabourn Cruise Line's famous breadsticks straight from the galley on the Seabourn Odyssey:



Now that you have focused on the breadsticks, I want you to not look at the chef making the breadsticks, but the galley behind it.  And I want you to view it in Full Screen mode.  That's right, make the video as large as you can.

What do you see? 

What I see is a pristine, clean, modern galley that looks brand new on a ship that was launched in 2009. 

I see a galley that is equipped with some of the best facilities there are; not only for a cruise ship, but even a land-based, restaurant.

I see fresh fruits and only those things out that should be out.

I see an international galley team that is happy and proud of what they do.

And I see the perfect reason why those who feel compelled to provide an additional gratuity (which are neither required nor expected on Seabourn) should make a donation to the Crew Welfare Fund rather than to a particular waiter or stewardess...because there is a team behind those folks you see onboard that make them look great.

Yes, Seabourn has the best breadsticks anywhere.  But when you know that Seabourn's galley puts so much time and care into making simple breadsticks, you have to be confident that whatever you are being served (almost always ala minute) the staff and crew who made it appreciate that it matters.

Now it is only a few more weeks until the 2013 Goldring Travel Food & Wine Cruise on the Seabourn Quest sailing on November 13, 2013 from Rio to Buenos Aires.  I can't wait!
