Skeptical? Channel your very best holiday vibes and turn your abode into the hottest bar, restaurant or culinary kitchen with these tools.

Indulge in Catered Meals…Or Make a Cruise Favourite

In an age of at-home delivery services, takeout no longer means simply pizza or Chinese. Support local restaurants in and around your neighbourhood by treating yourself to a gourmet meal in the main dining room (aka your dining room) via handy delivery apps like Uber Eats or Dilveroo. (You can even interrupt yourself halfway through for a "surprise" performance of "Sweet Caroline," waving your napkin above your head -- this might prove more difficult with a paper napkin.)

Feeling extra ambitious? End the meal on a sweet note by making your very own Carnival warm chocolate melting cake.

For more cruise-specific recipes -- including five more desserts -- check out our Cruise Ship Recipes to Make at Home.
