I heard there was an incredible onboard excursion on the Freedom where they show you the interior workings of the ship. I also heard you get the recipe to the chocolate melting cake! Have any of you done this and what exactly is it?

I haven't heard this with Carnival. Princess has one and I think it's called Behind the Scenes. Some of the things they show you are the backstage, engine room, laundry room, and galley.

I haven't done the on board tour yet, or know the current details.

Here is a link to a previous discussion about it.

Thanks Dwayne, I think I read it on Carnival Connections, but I am not sure. I know I would love to see what goes on behind the scenes.

Hello papa55,
I don't know about the "behind the scenes", but I do have the recipe for the divine melting cake!
8 oz semisweet chocolate
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
7 eggs (divided use)
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup flour
Preheat oven to 375. Melt chocolate and butter, cool 10 minutes. In separate bowl mix four eggs with sugar. Whisk, and add flour. Add remaining 3 eggs. Add egg mixture to chocolate mixture. Pour into individual ramekins (or custard dishes). Bake until just done, about 15 - 20 minutes (interior will be melting). Serve with Vanilla ice cream. It is a very simple recipe to make.

Now you know how really, really evil this lovely tasting dessert is

Ya'll are killing me with the recipe!

Papa, the tour is most likely going to sell out immediately because it is so limited. You should go to the Info Desk the second you get on board and sign up for it. If it is sold out, they usually start a waiting list for any cancellations.

This is something I want to do on my next 7 day cruise too! The reports I've read about it have all been positive. I hear you get to even see the brig and the morgue. Ironically I heard they were side by side.

Hi Janfred,

It usually makes about 6 servings, of course it depends how many you count as a serving )
Glad I could share this with all of you and remember, get out and get your exercise before indulging on this luscious dessert!

Thanks Dwayne, I heard the same. I will have to put on my running shoes when we board!

Thanks for the link to this thread Dwayne. The "behind the fun" tour that we took on Triumph was the best money we've every spent on a cruise. I booked it immediately after boarding, so not sure how fast it filled up. It is limited to only 16 people and the shore excursion desk is right there when you board - so might as well take care of it then. From what I understand, the tour is offered on all Carnival ships.
