  1. Reminds me of a time I was seated next to an Indian couple who ordered Indian no meat as they were vegan and the man shared his meal with me which included spicy papadums and biryani rice. The entire meal was so delicious I had to get it on another cruise. Some of those Indian chefs are fabulous cooks.
  2. I also used to have it every evening in the MDR but the recipe has changed and lacking the extra garlic flavour. Just my opinion.
  3. I guess it's a matter of opinion. Yes, the food quality has declined over the years but I would not go so far as to say it's bad. If I don't fancy something on the menu I'll have a few appetizers, sometimes a dessert depending on the menu or I'll eat my dessert at cafe el Bacio.
  4. Try the chocolate tarts they serve there. I found the lemon tarts did not have a strong enough lemon flavour. The german chocolate cake is to die for but you can't find it on every ship or sailing.
  5. When I cruised with DH we both had excellent French onion soup in Tuscan grill. The next night he ordered again from the MDR and it was not as good. The waiter was so kind and brought him one from the specialty restaurant.
  6. The beef short ribs that they serve during the concierge class luncheon. So yummy and fall off the bone.
  7. An elderly gentleman at my table would order the same dish most nights and then leave most of it and complain the meat was too dry. But in all honesty the poor man was in a wheelchair and was suffering so allowances have to be made.
  8. Forgot to mention Bananas Foster. Whenever it's on the menu I have to eat less of my main entree. 😁
  9. I love escargot but on the Equinox last fall it was not that good. Love the German chocolate and carrot cake from Cafe Al Bacio which is better than the MDRs one.
  10. Love it too they do a great job and I don't cook lamb at home so it's a nice treat. Also love the blue cheese souffle. Used to like the escargots but I noticed they might be using a new supplier and they are not as good as previously. I assume they come in frozen, don't know for sure.
  11. Thank you. That is very kind of you to offer. I usually request a table of 8 - 10 people so there is always someone to talk with. One of the couples I had a pre cruise dinner with on my last sailing changed their dining table to sit with me and as it turned out there were 4 solo ladies 2 of which had birthdays. Lots of fun going to shows, martini bars and late night dance parties.
  12. In the MDR I have had people at my table usually large tables pick up bread from basket then put it back and take another one. Same people who double dip in the butter dish which is meant for the table. I ask for my own dinner roll and individual butters that are wrapped in foil.
  13. I'm not so sure either. Anything goes on some balconies.
