Come Christmastime, Cunard Line’s kiddy cruisers flock to gingerbread workshops to decorate houses and cookies, and surely eat a gumdrop or three. Disney organizes similar get-togethers; one for families to design candy-laden gingerbread houses together, and the other solely for wee ones to decorate gingerbread men and gobble up a spare foot when they think no one is looking.
On Crystal Cruises, chefs craft six gingerbread houses, with the biggest, most splendid to be showcased in the Crystal Plaza by the Crystal Dining Room alongside an internationally inspired assortment of cookies. Think freshly baked vanilla kipferl (almond crescents), chocolate chip, meringue, and hazelnut-linzer with apricot jam. Grab as many cookies as you like, whenever you like. I can personally testify to how their buttery aromas beckon.
