I know that taste is subjective and that what one person may not like, another may love. But if a friend asked you what food they should avoid on their up coming cruise, what item(s) would you tell them to skip? And don't forget the cruise line. What may be bad on one, may be to die for on another.
RCCL Legend of the Seas. The dining room food was quite good with some outstanding
meals. The buffet, however, was bad beyond description. We really had it one day
when they offered meatballs in sauce (ahh, quick snack!) that were all
gristle, there was no meat in them. Whatever they put in the meat grinder was
really scraps. I doubt if a dog would have eaten them.
NCLA Pride of Hawai'i. Now we were on the inaugural cruise, and there
were kinks to be fixed with the new ship, crew, and facilities. We had
excellent food on this cruise, except for one night in the main dining room.
I guess they were experimenting with the menu, and a "spicy" curry
was indeed spicy. Inedible. We know enough to just move on and
keep going. The specialty restaurants were great. Particularly, the steak
house and the Oriental restaurant were fantastic.
