Default No more Baked Alaska?

Has Carnival done away with Baked Alaska? Just returned from the Conquest Jan 30, and no Baked Alaska served.... I realize it is only ice cream, but the people with our group who were first time cruisers missed the extravaganza that usually accompanies the presentation.

WHAT?!?!? That is one of our favorite parts of the cruise. Does anyone know if this is true? I realize this is pitiful that we go on a cruise for baked alaska but everyone has their priorities - right?!

That's kinda how I felt. It is just ice cream but was something each of us looked forward to....the kitch of the presentation, etc.... on the last night after dinner, we all sat there and looked at each other thinking..."is that all there is?!"

We have had it but no parade and no flames with it. They just told us that was the special dessert for the night. To much of a fire hazzard.

We had it on the Fascination 1/28... there was no parade but we were each presented with a slice after the formal dinner.

Cheers,

We were on the Valor in January and I was so looking forward to the Baked Alaska and asked our waiter what night it would be presented. He apologized and said that it is considered a fire hazard and it is no longer served. Anything that had flames is taboo now. Sigh, no more Cherries Jubilee on crepes.....

Hi.....I was just aboard Carnival Valor and there was no baked Alaska, so I assume it's gone. It may be that many people skipped baked Alaska in lieu of a menu dessert.

Just realized it wasn't on the last cruise, the dawn Princess to Alaska back in '03.

I've been on four Carnival cruises, Destiny, Fantasy, Conquest, and Fascination and had baked Alaska after dinner near the final evening of each cruise.

Having worked for a law firm that represented all the cruise lines I have to tell you they are removing anything that could be considered a fire hazard. A few years ago in a bar onboard a couple wanted "lemon drops" and the bartender didn't know how to make them (or so the story went), so the woman made a big fuss and she started making them. Somehow liquor was spilled on the bar, which eventually went up in flames --- which spread to her husband's shirt, etc. It was a horrid scene and I think that's a good example of what cruiselines are trying to avoid these days. It's sad, but it only takes one mistake to mess things up really badly. And safety is such an issue these days that they have to do what appears in the best interests of most folks.

I just returned from a Costa cruise and we had Cherries Jubilee, but they did not flame it at the table --- they prepared it at the service bar.

Just back from the Valor....no Baked Alaska or Cherries Jubilee, our head waiter told us these desserts are not being served any longer but did not offer an explanation.

Was on the Triumph June 05, 2005 and we had it one night for dessert. It sure was yummy. No fanfare they just bought it out and told us what it was and sliced it. Then they all danced after the dessert was served.

We had it on the Monarch 2 weeks ago. The waiters balanced it on their heads, candles burning, dancing around. We also had cherries jubilee but nothing special about it.

They still have baked Alaska on HAL - at least they did last Sept for an Alaska cruise.
I love the fanfare and music and fun of the presentation - would really miss it if they stopped providing it.
