If you could choose from all the dinner options that Carnival has to offer, what would be the perfect meal?

Be sure to include a salad, soup, appetizer, main course, drink, and dessert.

Since I've only been on RCCL, I want to see what I have to look forward to on my CCL cruise. And, for the record, the best thing I had (that I remember) on my one RCCL cruise was the escargot.

I'll prepare myself for the flood of "CHOCOLATE MELTING CAKE!! OMG!!11!1!!! YuM "

I keep telling you guys (and one day you will believe me). It is not "chocolate melting cake". I brought some home and had it analyzed through an electron microscope. Indeed, chocolate melting cake is actually dark pigmented crack. It's all part of a diabolical Carnival scheme to get you back as soon as possible. I would love to post the results of my findings but, alas, the wife at the product. If you guys need me, I will be on the Fantasy soon.

Hum.... The appetizer would be escargot and the onion soup, salad would be the Caesar, main course Lobster & Beef Wellington and the Warm Chocolate Melting Cake and a cup of espresso to for desert.

I really can't top that, other than I like Carnival's cream soups. They do have some great escargots on Carnival. The escargots on the Liberty Of The Seas last month were a little over the top on garlic and salt.

I see Beef Wellington on "Hells Kitchen" all the time, but I don't know what it is. Could you describe it for me please? And is it available in the regular dining room or just the reservations only club?

I leave on the Pride in 18 days and I cannot WAIT to get hooked on the "dark pigmented crack"(tm DrLivingston)!! Everyone please keep posting your favorites, I'm taking notes!

It's a slice of beef tenderloin with puff pastry wrapped around the outer edge. In between the beef and pastry is a mixture of finely chopped mushrooms and foie gras pate.

It is on the regular dining menu on a certain night. Click Here for some sample menus for putting together the perfect meal.

Warning! It may cause hunger

I don't know if I have more fun telling people that foie gras is the fattened liver of a goose or that Caesar salad dressing has anchovies in it. Kind of a toss up.

I think the Goose liver is more shocking
