I always look forward to the escargot. The mushroom soup in the MDR was very good too.

The Bacon Macaroni and Cheese was surprisingly good. Also, the Fried Chicken was tasty as well.

For breakfast, I have enjoyed their Baked Apple and Eggs Benedict.

Warm chocolate melting cake and a fruit plate for dipping into the cake is so yummy. I also like their shrimp cocktail as a dinner appetizer.

The fruit soups-cherry and strawberry -especially
I liked the alligator fritters but feel I was in the minority
Ribs at lunch time in the MDR
For breakfast thought I am a real square-two fried eggs, corned beef hash, and OJ

Vegetable curry pot pie and warm chocolate melting cake ( and I am not even a chocolate person. OMG!)
My DH loved the sandwiches from the sandwich place. Kids loved the pizza and burgers.

Call me crazy, but I loved the corned beef hash for breakfast on the Elation in September! I will have it every day of my cruise in June. I am drooling over it now! But, I didn't have a single bad meal on that cruise. I really liked everything!
