The only reason that they would put a chain restaurant on a cruise ship would be to appease the children who refuse to eat the grown up fare in the dining rooms. They would prefer pizza from Pizza Hut instead of the buffet. They would prefer hamburgers from Mcdonalds instead of the lido deck burgers. They should cater to the adults who pay for the cruises instead of the rugrats who's only purpose is to clog the pools and push every floor's button on the elevator.

Now, now. I realize it may have been centuries ago, but we were all children, er, rugrats once...

My vote is for The Olive Garden.

My parents didn't take me on a cruise until I was 43.

Children eat what their parents present to them.

When I was growing up, we never went to fast food restaurants. I remember going to Arby's and Hardee's on field trips with Girl Scouts, and my mom took my brother and I to Krystal in Jacksonville, FL when my dad was in Vietnam -- but that was only for nostalgia -- my mom grew up in Jacksonville and that was the high school hang-out back when Krystal first began.

You eat what you're taught to eat. Eating at my house was like going to a different country every night. We even played the music indicative of the country where the food originated. If my dad said something was good, I believed him.

I will really enjoy the food served in the dining room on Carnival Holiday. Hamburgers -- forget about it!

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.
