Anyone know what is better for breakfast and lunch? The Windjammer or the dining room? I'm going on only my second cruise, and for the last one, I'll be honest, slept late and most of the time skipped breakfast, except for one day I ate in the Windjammer. Just curious to know what other people think. Specifically I'll be on the Enchantment, if that makes any difference.
2007 - Majesty of the Seas (Bahamas)
2009 - Enchantment of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2010 - Freedom of the Seas (Western Caribbean)
2013 - Golden Princess (Alaska, roundtrip from Seattle)

I prefer breakfast in the dining room. No endless searching for a table or dealing with crowds, getting that great RCI dining room service, etc. A nice quiet way to start the day.

Lunch depends on the cruise. In the Caribbean I am usually lingering around the pool area so I tend to go to the buffet and grab a sandwich or something quick. To me RCI's dining room lunch menu is a bit spartan. Plus, I think it is a set menu with the same choices every day.

We usually do Windjammer for the simple reason that there is a large selection of food to choose from....If I want fruit and cereal, I can do that fairly quickly....

I agree with both Dave and Sonny...Although, it is nice to have a table in the dining room and the food is nicer.

I think I went to breakfast in the DR once. It was nice except you don't have a choice as to who you sit with. I had almond pancakes which are better than WJ pancakes because pancakes need to be eaten as soon as they're cooked.

I enjoyed eating in the WJ because it was quick, I could get what I wanted, I could get a variety of things. Just depends what you're in the mood for.

I would recommend going to the DR at least once for breakfast or lunch. You can see how you like it.

No choice in who you sit with: we have met some delightful, well traveled people, and some people we are thankful not to be trapped at a table with night after night. My parents (who are elderly and not social) ask, even in the open seating, for their own table and have never been refused.

We've done both but, most of the time we do the Windjammer. Mainly because I enjoy grazing for awhile...LOL

That's what I did too. I enjoyed not having to dress up. Although I ate more than if I'd gone to the DR.
