All of the chilled soups!
The cheesecake, surf and turf, escargot, and any of the steaks from the Steakhouse.
Tiramisu in the MDR.
Stuffed mushrooms. Escargot.

There are very few things foodwise on Carnival cruises that I'm not a fan of.

Is my understanding correct that they no longer serve lobster tails as a regular menu item, but one you have to pay extra for?

I love all the hot soups, escargot, filet, ribs....the list goes on and on!! 28 more day until I get to do it again!
Thank you. I had no idea what it was.

Thanks for the idea! Sounds yummy!

I could be wrong, but I believe they still offer lobster on one of the elegant nights, but they offer steakhouse selections in the MDR every night for a 20 fee (which lobster is one of those selections offered).

5 day or shorter cruise no longer as lobster tail on regular menu. DH ordered off the Steakhouse menu on Inspiration and was disappointed. Seven day and longer longer cruises still have lobster on the MDR menu.

It's like chewy garlic. But why not order it? It's free; if you don't like it, you don't have to eat it?

Things I love:

The tomato soup at SeaDay Brunch, and those PopOver Rolls, I absolutely love those!
I am also a fan of the Hen Diaviolla (spelled wrong I am sure) at Sea Day Brunch

I really liked the Smores parfait, and hope they have it in the dining room this week, I am getting an extra for later!

Love Guy's Burgers, and Guys Pig and Anchor if it is there.

Did not like the Italian restaurant at all.

The rest of the food is good, not great, some things are real misses, but I always try something I wouldn't otherwise eat a few times.
