I think the word "bad" is often misused when describing cruise ship food. Bad to me means the lettuce was brown and wilted, the fish had that spoiled smell, or the rolls were stale. I think when many say "bad" they really mean they didn't like the way something was prepared or they didn't like the items offered. You know - you go to a barbecue expecting steak and all they served was hot dogs. So you tell people "the food at the barbecue was bad" even if the hot dogs were cooked perfectly.
