Despite Paula Deen’s statement that says otherwise, the southern cook’s 2013 Royal Caribbean “Cruise with Paula” might have been a snooze fest.
Deen’s personal assistant, Brandon Branch, tweeted, then deleted, “This is a floating nursing home!!!!" on Jan. 27, the first day of the cruise.
The cruise ship sailed to Honduras, Belize and Mexico. On her website, Deen describes the trip as “our most exciting party at sea ever.”
Deen’s assistant also tweeted during the trip, “My room is also the size of my powder room at home. And no liquor in minibar! I am in a dark place!!!!"
Branch then quickly deleted the tweets once people started to take notice that the cruise wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.
On Feb. 1, Branch tweeted, “Having a fabo lunch at El Cid resort! I have always loved Mexico!! One more day at sea, then home. Been so much fun!"
On the last day of the cruise, Branch tweeted that he had a great time.
