Sushi Class don't miss this!

Recommended Posts

My sister and i took the sushi class this morning and it was a blast!

 

First time i made sushis, thrid Time i ate sushis lol! They was the Best sushis That i had in my entire Life lol!

 

Elvis the chef was very fun and helping. I have allergies to shrimps and tuna, he bring me Salmon and eel. The women in front of me was allergic to gluten, he bring her lobster (we can't take the surimi because it contains gluten and he touch the Spicy tuna tartare and shrimps in the plate).

 

On the Table There was all the ingredients we needed and the Table was wraped in plastic film, the mat for making the sushi was wrap in plastic film and we used gloves and the chef vaporise our gloves with cooking spray (chef trick). Before all of That You have to wash your hands very carefully.

 

We made 2 types of sushis, 2 nigiris and a burrito-ice cone type of Sushi.

 

One sushi was roll in panko. But before That he cut my sushis and the gluten-free sushis to not have contamination. He wash is plank before and after. Very safe.

 

We were full! They offer the sushi sauce and the yumyum sauce (don't Know the name but sooooooo good!) and We had a glass of mimosa.

 

Fantastic expérience! Elvis was perfect and he says That sushi is made with fun and laugh.

My DW and DD both did this 2 weeks ago on Anthem. Lasted 2 hrs. Were with a group of about 12 or 14 in Izumi. Cost $30 each and each received a certificate after and were able to take pictures with the chef. They both loved it very much. We had made sushi at home a few times before but my wife said she has many new tricks now. Looking forward to our next sushi session :D

Just want to thank the OP for this thread and those of you who have responded so far. I've never done this on a RCL ship .but have read a few other's reviews that they really enjoyed it, so I quickly went to my cruise planner... it's offered for my upcoming Explorer sailing So I booked :D. Wouldn't have even thought of it unless I had read this thread.

This sounds like a blast! I'm wondering what ship you are on as well!

I've never had sushi and I've thought a cruise might be a good time to try it. But....I don't want any raw seafood. So can someone please give me the sushi for dummies 101 class.

It was on Allure. Can't answer before this because the day was full!

 

My sister took the cupcake class too and made a cute dog cupcake. She don't want to eat it (the class include a second cupcake free of charge in the stand).

We did the sushi class on the Explorer when we were in Alaska. Both my husband and I loved it and it was well worth the price.

I've done the sushi class on Navigator and saw that it was also offered on Voyager. I'm not sure if it is the case on other ships but on Navigator it was good value too as the family could watch and share the sushi you create for lunch - they serve you at the tables in Izumi. They even gave me my leftovers to take back to the stateroom (as the two of us couldn't finish my creations).

I am pretty sure they would adapt the ingredients for you. We had a cooked crumbed shrimp in one of the dishes and the others included ingredients like cucumber and avocado as well as the raw fish so you could just leave the raw fish out if you wished.

Now that I know this is available on the ship we are going on, I was actually curious if anyone can answer...do you sit down during this sushi making experience? My wife seems to think for some reason that you are standing but when I saw that you said yours was about 2 hours, I figured that it's highly unlikely it's done while standing the entire time. Could some insight be provided into that? Thank you.

I looked on the cruise planner but did not see it. Anyone know if it is offered on Oasis? I think my adult daughter would enjoy this class.

I have done the sushi making on Grandeur and anthem. On Grandeur we stood for the sushi making, them moved to sit to eat.

On Anthem last month, we sat the whole time. We didn't have mimosa.

My daughter is vegetarian and I don't like fish.

We make avocado and cucumber rolls. The best rolls I ever had were tempura asparagus. The sushi place that we frequented before we moved made up plates of it when they saw me come in the door. I personally prefer sushi rolled with the seaweed on the outside.

It is super easy to make at home if not as pretty as the sushi chefs make it. Sushi rice, a splash of rice wine vinegar and what ever else you want. You can use thin sliced chicken or steak if you feel like a protein.

I don't see this on the Liberty and that kinda bums me out. Would love to learn how to make my rolls look a little less sloppy.

I will be on the Harmony in June and am thinking of taking this class, but I am a vegetarian. So I was wondering if any vegetarians have taken this class and what you/they thought?

If you read the original post with a French Canadian accent, it makes perfect sense.;)

I hope they have this on Oasis this summer.

 

 

We did it on Oasis a couple weeks ago (sat at tables), it was a lot of fun. Also, easy enough my 8-yr old could do it. There were a number of substitutions offered if you were allergic/not crazy about the ingredients. My daughter doesn't like spicy tuna, for example, and they gave her a gorgeous cut of solid tuna. We didn't sign up til we were on the ship; it was offered two different sea days.

Nice to know that I can sign up on the ship IF it does not ever make it to the planner before hand. I keep checking for my June 4 cruise but so far no Sushi class.

It shows up in the Cruise Planner for our Empress cruise to Key West/Cuba in August. The only thing is I don't see any indication when it is.

Thank you so much for this thread ! Your pictures were beautiful and your delight at the experience was very evident ! We will be looking for this on Allure before we sail in September.

warm regards,

Kristine
