Thanks so much for the response. May have to splurge on Crown Grill.
I think I would rather hear the favorites in the main dining room and buffets. It was my fault for not specifying

It's been a few years since our Princess cruise, but I had a small side dish of Fettuccine Alfredo every single night for dinner. The waiter knew to bring it. BEST I ever ate. I hope they still offer it!

Love Boat Dream is a heart shaped dark chocolate, very dense, mouse. Google pictures and your mouth will start to water. "Pp" is just short for "previous post".

We also almost always order a small side dish of Fettuccine Alfredo which we share.

Remember, the Princess Volcano on the Kid's menu if you like Banana Splits.

You'll be fine. Probably few responses because there was another fairly thread asking the same.

Enjoy your upcoming cruise and the food!

Uhhhh.... this Foodies forum is not very well visited. Don't be disappointed or mad; the number of replies here in no way reflects the quality of the food, OK? You can also go to the Princess board and use the Search this Forum function - type in "favorite food" or something similar; as stated, this has been discussed before.

Stay away from the Qual and Venisson Teneriffe....it sounds good but it looks like SPAM.....and I unwillingly ate it.

As for food, Duck a L'orange is AMAZING. So is the lobster of course, the Mussels were to die for, and their prime rib was amazing.

I loved the warm milk that the wait staff poured on my oatmeal and the brown sugar they spooned on it. Is the simple little touches that wow me on the Golden Princess on two sailings.

I would suggest to try something you have never eaten before. If you don't like it try something else. I like the escargot, Beef Wellington, my oatmeal lol, and yes the Love Boat dream omg. I enjoyed everything I ate while on board. They main thing is to relax, enjoy and be pampered on your trip. Now you got me looking for my cookbook got last year on The Golden

I know you want to hear about the food in the main dining room and buffets but if you can afford it, you should do the Chef's Table. They only allow 10 people/night and you have to call the DINE telephone line when you first get on the cruise to try to reserve a spot. You get to see the kitchen and the head chef prepares a multi-course meal of whatever they want for you that you can't get anywhere else on the ship and everything is delicious. It's pretty pricey though (not sure how much it is now but when I did it 2 years ago I think it was $95/person) but I highly recommend it.

Default My Faves

My favorites in the MDR:

Fettucine Alfredo
Goat cheese souffle
All of their salads
Almost all of the fish dishes
Flourless chocolate cake
Beef wellington

Also, the pizzas are amazing. My husband (born in Italy & brought up in New Jersey--so a big lover of pizza) loves it & has it every single day at least twice a day.

Finally, don't miss out on the other times during the day during which you can visit the MDR. Their breakfasts, lunches and high tea are so good.

Enjoy Princess!!

My personal opinion is that Princess has the best food of the lines we've tried. They do red-meat really delicious. Here is a link to some pictures from the Crown:
http://www.cruisefoods.com/index.php...crown_princess

Here are my faves:
Prime rib
Goat cheese souffle
Fettuccine alfredo (make sure you get the meal size with the cheese nest!)
Flourless chocolate cake (don't know if they still have it)
Floating islands in vanilla sauce
Tiramisu
Pistachio cream
Escargots
Cold fruit soups
Their pizza is delicious
Princess love boat dream

Have a great cruise!
