Ahh yes...the burgers! Great call, Dave! Sometimes the simple meals are the best.

Although I love escargots, sweetbreads, medium rare duck, sushi, sashimi, and other neat stuff, I always come back to the basics. A good burger. A crusty hard roll full of cold cuts and cheese. As James Beard said: "Too few people understand a really good sandwich."

I think Elvis would agree.

I love a good cold cut sandwich too. One of my favorite additions to the ships has been the Deli. They used to have a grilled chicken breast sandwich served on a roll at the Lido grill. I haven't seen it the last few cruises though. I love the cheeseburgers too, and agree with Dave...they sure do hit the spot.

In the area I grew up in - the Hudson River Valley - we had tons of Italian and Polish deli's and restaurants. One place I loved was Rocky's. It was really a bar but they had great food. They'd cut a loaf of Italian bread in half, hollow it out, and fill it with meatballs and sauce, or pepperoni and sauce (my favorite). It was the size of a football and weighed a ton! A half was a "regular" sandwich! You couldn't eat it without getting sauce all over you. Man, it was good.

OK, I am hungry again! I'll have mine with Mozz and green peppers please. The best sandwiches are always the messiest.

It's like a scavenger hunt here to find a "good" (not chain) Italian place that has hot oven subs. When I find one they never have Capicola.

I'm glad the ships have more options now. This could be an opportunity to send them some suggestions for further improvement.

Dr. Livingston (I presume):

I did not eat all I described, in just one day. I would have liked too! <--That's me licking my lips

Frase, I know I could eat all that in one day. It may only be a few bites of each thing, but that's my favorite thing to do. I call it grazing. My hubby gets so mad at me and the waiters think I didn't like my food, but that's how I eat. A couple of bites here, a nibble there, then room for desert.

Congrats BillyBuzzy, is that the one on the Dawn or a different one? My co-worker sailed on the Dawn and hasn't stopped raving about her. NCL was tempting me so much, but I have to resist for a little while. At least until I can pay down the credit cards from the cruise next month. Sure hope they're offering great deals next summer.
