Wow, how nice of you to take the time today to get this posted. I know the day we leave a ship is hectic with traveling and then all the the things that need attention once home. You've gone above and beyond the call of duty here. Thanks so much.

Now the fun begins, pictures, reviews, I have nearly a full year to read about it all before we go. Woot Woot!!!

So aside from it being different, how was the food? Was it prepared well? Did it taste as good as it sounded?

Hmmm, snow crab salad. When I first read the speculation of the new menu, I seen crab legs in the thread. Im wondering if this snow crab salad is what was meant to be said?

And if so, is it REAL snow crab or just imitation crab meat?

I need to book another cruise on Freedom and find out!

Thank you SO much for taking the time to do this

I am not going to comment on how the food tasted because that would be too subjective. Presentation was stepped up a notch using different types of plates. Mostly things came out warm to hot when they should have, but I did get a warm apple cake last night that was cold.
They had 5 executive chiefs on board last week instead of the usual 3 to make sure things were prepared correctly. Lots of people from corporate to over see things also. Each dining room had a different style of menu to see which one was preferred.

The hotel director said the new menus will come out very soon on Oasis and Allure. Not sure of the order on the other ships.
