I think the food on some lines has gotten better, and gone down a bit on others. Carnival has made the greatest strides in improving literally everything...buffets, dining rooms, specialty restaurants, etc. Celebrity has lost some ground.
"Rache"....I used to watch her but too much exposure has ruined it for me. "Everyday, with Rachel Ray" is about right. You can't seem to go or do anything without seeing her face. Sandra Lee....she does have some good ideas. I used to go to a foodie website full of snobs. You ought to read what some of those people think of her! I actually prefer the old shows with Tyler Florence and Alton Brown. They actually taught you something.
