Default $14.95 for STEAK???

Just read a Freedom review that stated that on the dining room menu if you wanted to order the alternative entree of a steak it now costs $14.95. Is this true? Is it true for all ships?

Here we go again. I read that too and am not saying that the person writing that review is wrong but we would have heard about that by now by more than one person if this was the case.

If it was the case we would have heard it from a lot of other people. He probably got a bill for a drink and he thought it was for the steak.

The new menus have been out for a while and not one person has mentioned this as of yet. Again if they were charging this then we would have heard about it by now. MerionMom just came back from the Liberty and I know that Carol would have mentioned this if she had seen it on the menu.

So did they have a free alternative steak also, and then the "upgraded" one from Chops?

NOW that makes sense. Thanks for clearing it up. Glad that someone was paying attention.

Well it has now been cleared up which the person writing the Freedom review should have noted in their review. This is how silly rumors get started.

Yes, the Chops alternative was offered every night and on the last night they had both the regular NY Strip and the Chops alternative.

It's called "having a choice". You don't but others do.

So what we've clarified is that the review was correct - that an alternative steak is offered on the menu for $14.95........... Not a rumor after all.

Wonder who cooks these steaks - main DR chefs or Chops chefs. Could make a difference.
