I was not a fan of the Moderno, but if they had some Norwegian reindeer meat on a stick...? Could have been a game changer. Pickled fish in a cream sauce? Perfection!


This is awesome. It is impossible to be sure this is serious or sarcasm. They could offer the Real Norwegian(TM) Meal Plan. I haven't been to Norway but I think it would be like my Sweden trip. Fish for breakfast, lunch and dinner with some cheese and meatballs on the side. But for your last dinner you wander the ship and fall into La Cucina and order everything on the menu.

It is dead serious.

Respect the Koldtbord.

If I can phone a friend from the Dakotas, I'd appreciate a little help.

I enjoy Moderno's! The salads are always great! I can make a meal off the salads! I saw many critiques that the salad bar is usually empty...I have never experienced that.....but we usually eat early, so maybe that is why! And the meat is usually scrumptious! Carne-fest! I vote to keep it!

That may actually be a good idea!
I do really like the salad bar at Moderno and enjoy having many different meat choices. However, the last few times I have found the meats to be WAY TOO SALTY. Now, I don't think I can go back
So, if there is going to be a change at all the regional idea seems to be somewhat attractive.

I enjoy Moderno. What’s not to like about an unlimited parade of meat brought to your plate?

If I had to choose, I’d say there is a definite lack of Tex-Mex on any ship.

Hola, this gets our vote ... adapt it seasonally and for regional cuisines - make good use of all those international gallery talents onboard the fleet of ships.

Well, most great bbq is done with smokehouses or pits. Not really conducive to a ship.
