During the holidays my family has a special food treat that we always have on Christmas eve (tollhouse chocolate chip cookies and milk). I wont be traveling with family, but it would be a great touch if i could make these. Is it possible to have these made on a cruise? I know i would not be able to bring these from the US... Is it too much to ask?

On our last cruise, we headed up to Windjammer as soon as we boarded, and the manager greeted my son as we walked in. He asked our son what he wanted, and he promptly said Chocolate Chip cookies. The manager walked him over to the cookie station, and alas, no CC cookies. The manager told him to check back tomorrow, and he would guaranty that there would be CC cookies and that they would be there every day of our cruise. We didn't check every day, but whenever we looked, they did have CC cookies. Not sure I would call them Toll House, but they were good, and I appreciated the effort.

I dont think i can bring home cooked chocolate chip cookies from the US to Australia and then New Zealand. Ill give it a try (asking if they are available, once on board). I know i will OD on them when i get home if they are nit available, which i will not need after a 12 day cruise/16 total day vacation.

I love the chocolate chip cookies that we get on HAL ships. They are available everyday.

Princess cruise lines does warm cookies and milk every afternoon and are available through room service as well.

Some larger ships have the International Cafe and they have cookie selections too.

Good Luck!! I need to make sure I can get a cinnamon rolls on board, for our holiday tradition.

I'm a baker, so kinda of fussy about baked items. Do think cookies are hard to do wrong, most that I have seen on ships are acceptable.

We do bring baked items we like on board. Never had a problem doing so. When we are in some ports in the Mediterranean or Eastern Med we typically shop for bakery items we like and bring them on board.
