Everyone here is so helpful! I am trying to decide which nights to book specialty restaurants on our NA cruise. Is there Anywhere in particular you would suggest I look for MDR menus? DH is a picky eater so want to book when there isn't so much he likes in the menu. Thanks in advance!

Thanks, Boatdrill. I didn't knpw aboit this site, but this shows the menus in no particular order. They are also from 2014. I was hoping to see in order. I had found a listing beforw out Caribbean cruise, but I assumed it would be different in Alaska.

My mother in law is also very picky & from what we've experienced, with the exception of vegan fare, the cruise lines (we've been on a few) are very accommodating!

Thanks for posting this! Are the menus pretty much the same from each ship? We are doing a 14-day cruise ... do you know if the menus repeat for the second week? Sure looks like plenty of options!!!

I did not ask but I assume the 14-day menus work much as the HAL Caribbean menus that have a few variations each day in the MDR for the second week. The menus are marked "A" which means there is also a "B" series just as in the Caribbean. When I compared my Caribbean menus for the second week, I noted only changes in the pasta type and how the same protein was prepared.

My website also has all of the Specialty Restaurant menus. I really liked the Canaletto but as a solo, I didn't want to order more than one appetizer. Two guests or more can order more and share. The Suppe de Pesci was fabulous.

My cruise also include three days in Denali if you have any questions.

Never up late enough or hungry enough for the late night buffet, but those menus looks like the best menu choices of all.

Thanks so much for posting this. I'm doing my first cruise ever in September -- 14-days to Alaska -- and this gives me a good idea of the kinds of things to expect.

Thank you so much for posting the menus. We are trying to decide when we want to go to the Tamarind and PG on our upcoming cruise. We haven't gone on a cruise in four years.

I am also vey excited to see guava juice is still offered in the morning! It is one of my favorite parts of the cruise.

Thank you! When the menu says "no sugar added" does that mean it has an artificial sweetener? Do you know if they have gluten free options available for sandwiches?
thank you

The "no sugar added" term is hard to pin down. I really like the HAL "so sugar added" chocolate mousse cake. It is not very sweet but I don't think it is sugar free. That is the best I can offer for your first question.

There are signs that gluten-free bread is available for sandwiches but I haven't seen anyone requesting it.
