Sabatinis is my vote too. $40 for a multi-course italian meal of that caliber is impossible to find. We didn't do Crowne Grill on our Crown Princess cruise as we'd done Sterling on Star the year before, and didn't feel that it was worth the cover charge. The steak was good, but not hugely better than what was offered normally in the dining room dinners, whereas Sabatinis was head and shoulder above what you could have at the normal dinners IMHO.USD$40 for the cover charge? That is AUD$70 x 2 = AUD$140 for a couple, c'mon on in spinner. Crikey, bit rich, might just order the big spaget at the 2nd sitting in the normal dining room - Bocelli?
USD$40 for the cover charge?Sorry, that cover charge was for DW and I both. Should have been more careful with the wording. Apologies again for the confusion.
Both are very good and different experiences. If you really enjoy Italian, I would pick Sabatini's. If you really prefer steak or seafood dishes, I would go to the Crown Grill. If money was not an issue, I would go to Crown Grill more twice but probably not Sabitini's, so if I'm forced to choose, Crown Grill wins.We are going to two dinners at specialty restaurants. One will be with the kids and one without. I was thinking of doing one of each but am not sure which the kids would prefer.

I was thinking of doing one of each but am not sure which the kids would prefer.I haven't been to Sabatini's (that will change in a little over 3 weeks) but it can be quite long, 2-3 hours long. Depending on the kids and the antsyness factor, if that is an issue you might want to pick accordingly.
