breakfast is our most important meal of the day . we do have a light lunch but hardly ever have supper or dinner .
when we go on a cruise , we have to adjust our eating habits , but still have breakfast as our main meal and at dinner time usually get questioned by the stewards why we don't eat more . "you don't like the food ? can we bring you something else ? " , are the usual questions at our first dinner aboard ship .
particularly when we pass on the baked alaska , we are being encouraged : "just a little slice , yes ? " .
so we take a bit of time to explain our choice .
