Our waiters handled our drink orders.

Dave, that coffee sounds horrible
The coffee was the color of mud.

I know you eat chili for breakfast, but I am just not a European style breakfast fan. The continental breakfast was included with our rooms. Cold cuts, slices of cheese, croissant with tomato and cheese in it, etc. I ate it but I would have preferred something else. Cultural differences in foods served at various meals are often funny. Some old-time southerners ate fried chicken for breakfast and couldn't believe some people ate it for supper.

Ironically, I had the full English Breakfast earlier in that week and I really got into it - beans, funky blood sausage (black pudding), fried bread, eggs, all of it. I even had the brown sauce (HP sauce) to dip my sausage in.

I've noticed RCI putting most of the components for the English breakfast out at the Windjammer for a few years now. I just wish they'd work on their sausage gravy and biscuits. It is horrid. That is a favorite breakfast of mine, covered with lots of black pepper. Yum Yum!

Probably something that is rolling out ship-by-ship. I like the notion of my wait staff handling everything. I wonder if they get a share of the bar tips?

I actually enjoyed the gravy and biscuits.

I would have liked the cold cuts, cheese, and tomato because I'm not a big egg fan. Now, chili and spaghetti or pizza, that's a great breakfast. I like biscuits and gravy, but the pastries on Princess are so heavenly. Sonny, you're a lot closer than most of us. I've got Months to go Then that week will just fly Oh well, I get to look forward to another one next year. Maybe 2 if I get lucky!

Creton

It sounds like something I'd try.

But after looking at a photo, I am not so sure.

Dave and Penny, its somewhat of an acquired taste like many things. Usually it is served from a chilled state and is spread on toast, bagel, english muffin or the such. Some like it with just a little cracked black pepper and others with a little bit of mustard. Its a great compliment to a French Canadian breakfast and the contents help to keep them warm, especially during the colder months. My wife used to make this but now we can buy great quality locally.

Hum Hum
