Soups on!! When I was unable to locate in the Carnival Cookbook a favorite dish served in the dining room of the Sensation, I approached my waiter, Fortunado, and asked his help in obtaining this delicious recipe. The next evening he had the recipe ready and waiting for me as I arrived for dinner.

1/2 pound onion, quarters
5 2/3 ounces leek, chunks
1 1/8 ounces garlic clove
3 3/8 tbsp olive oil
2 1/2 quarts chicken stock
1 1/4 pounds pumpkin puree, roasted
5/8 ounce chicken base
1 2/3 cups half and half
1/4 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
dash nutmeg

Roast onions, leeks and garlic cloves in olive oil in a preheated oven at 300 degrees F for 30 to 45 minutes. Remove and puree in blender.

Bring stock, pumpkin puree, pureed vegetables and chicken base to boil. Simmer for 45 minutes.

Add half & half and simmer.

Season with salt & pepper. Finish with heavy cream. Top with nutmeg.

Servings: 15
Here is the link to the above recipe I hope you have a tasty lunch! :D

Hi Laura,
I just searched google and found LOTS of pumpkin soup recipes.
Go Carnival cruise recipes and you will find them.
Good luck

Funny - it came from Sealetter, and she replies "CruiseMates is the best."

But here is a little known (for now, anyway) fact... Sealetter is now a part of (also under the same corporate umbrella as) Cruisemates, as is So, you will probably be seeing more links to them in the future.

Here is the link:

Well, Gee thanks Paul. You know I have a lot to do today, and here you come up with another site, where there are many reviews, that I must read. LOL

If you guys have not checked it out, there are two very good reviews on the Windjammer cruises, and on the Delta Queen type cruises.

Paul, Why don't you do an article about this umbrella. How big is it, and what other resources will we have in the future. Also will our registration on Cruisemates, get us on the other forums?
