One trend I see in cruising now, is placing well known chain restaurants onboard cruise ships as alternative dinning places. For example, Johnny Rockets is now on many Royal Caribbean cruise ships. I also heard that Benihana Steak House is on some (most?) (all?) NCL cruise ships.

Anyway, if this trend were to continue, what well known chain restaurant would you like to see on a cruise ship?

My choice: Olive Garden

Olive Garden is okay but what do they have that you can't get on a cruise?

Some day the explorer will have Taco Bell, Denny's and White Castle on the promenade. The upside is that the cover charge will be $ 3.00.

Cheesecake Factory -- the restaurant.
Cheesecake Express -- Cheesecake Factory's dessert-and-coffee-only chain found in resort areas.
We have the restaurant in Birmingham. I'm addicted to the Vietnamese Shrimp Summer Rolls and chocolate mousse cheesecake. Kahlua Cocoa Cream cheesecake is good, too. Mmmm. My toes are wiggling.

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).

That was my thought as well.

Starbuck's - although not a restaurant

When I was regularly in Boston I enjoyed the weekly visits to the cheescake factory. (With a new date every time, of course )

The idea of a chain or franchise is precisely what I do not want on a ship.
