Alfredo's actually has good pizza. Cafe Corniche on Sea Princess had good pizza. I've only had pizza on a few other Princess ships: Crowne Princess (sucked), Star Princess - twice (sucked), Coral Princess (sucked less but...), Island Princess (sucked), Grand Princess - on Lido deck, not in Alfredo's - sucked).ON Grand Princess the pizza in Alfredo's was fine. I don't know what people are using as their reference point for pizza. I really, really, really don't get it.
Yes, I am kind of a "lone voice" here but my wife and my son actually agree with me although they think the pizza is "very slightly" better than I find it to be.
Princess (Lido)pizza has gone way downhill from what it it was just a few years ago. It used to be like a decent NY-style slice, but I think they've cheapened on ingredients and the quality has suffered as a result -- Not the only corner(s) Princess has been cutting in recent years.
That stated, I have had some comparable(to Prego's) pizza on Carnival's cook-to-order station. SEE: Nothing to write home about, but will satisfy the craving for a slice or two. Either are best when fresh out of the oven and the cook hasn't undercooked them.
The pizza on HAL and NCL was bad -- Real bad, not even edible. Think Frozen/TV Dinner Domino's/Pizza Hut cardboard crust/rubber cheese quality.
Alfredo's is surely in a league of its own (at sea_ as probably the closest to brick-fired Italian-style pizza. Very similar to the places near home that try to emulate their version by using PDO imported ingredients and attempting to adhere to the pizza Napoletana specifications.
