Don't mean to be contentious here, but one of the joys of cruising is getting away from the Olive Gardens and the Cheesecake Factories, not that there is anything at all wrong with them (well, at least not with Cheesecake Factory).
HEAR, HEAR!!! I couldn't agree more. I love the foods prepared on a cruise ship that you cannot get in your home town. It is definitely one of the joys of cruising. I never eat at chain restaurants when on vacation. Love to try new tastes and experiences in meals on the ship. But, I will go to Johnny Rockets for one of their famous shakes or malts.
