Quantity there was tons, but quality, i think it got much better in the last 4 days of the cruise. We loved the pizza in the cafe promenade and loved their desserts. There fruits were not sweet at all. Their steak was not cooked properly except for the last evening. Overall, i still loved it and would do the cruise again.
You must not have been on the Navigator. The food WAS excellent on the Navigator.
Actually Sonny, i think appreciation for good food is very subjective and is based on many factors. What you might think is good, i might think is mediocore or vice versa. But as i did mention, the food on the Voyager in the dining room got really good on the 4th day and i was having 2 dishes at a time.
Yup, gimme some fried spam on wheat, with holandaise sauce, chased by a Bud Light....ahhhh, Heaven.
Actually, food is subjective; many folks say escargot is wonderful; forget it; I ain't eatin' no snails. Sushi is a popular food these days (can you believe it's on the menu in Silicon Valley middle schools? Dang dotcommers, Unbelieveable). From my subjective taste buds, I ain't eatin' no bait, either. I have tried 'em....don't like 'em. Those are about the only foods I won't eat.
I remember one of my first cruises....trying caviar.....yyyyyyyuuukk. Didn't think I was cut out for cruising at first. I wasn't "classy" enough. Fortunately they had a grill with burgers and steak for dinner. Definately subjective for sure!
That reminds me of my 10 year high school reunion; we were in a poorly lit venue, I went to the food table, thought I scooping a pile of some kind of exotic chocolate thing on my plate, and not long after, realized it was caviar. Carlg: my sentiments exactly. Add caviar to my short list of foods I don't plan on eating. Tried it; did'nt like it.
Cruisin, you must have gone to one of them fancy schools.....even at a 10 year reunion, I think my class would have started a riot if they served caviar. And I agree, anything that can be found at a place that sells bait and tackle, shouldn't show up next to crackers. I swear the wait staff must get a hoot watching people walk up and eat that stuff!
