I just booked my first Princess cruise (2nd cruise total - first was Disney). My wife, kids and I are not picky eaters but we are also bringing my in-laws as a retirement gift. Both of them are very picky eaters and are not adventurous at all (mainly steak, chicken fingers, etc. - no seafood or what they call "ethnic" food). I can't seem to find any sample menus for the main dining room that are relatively recent. Does anyone know where I can find one? Any ideas on if they will be able to eat in the main dining room or are they going to be limited to buffet, pizza, and grill? Thanks!
MDR menus are basic with some always available items and other items that change every day. The menu usually includes selections of seafood, a meat selection of beef, pork or lamb, a veggie dish, and most times a homestyle dish, like a chicken leek pot pie.
If you want chicken fingers ask for the children's menu. They are there and yes adults can order form that menu. There may be a small steak one evening, but if you want steak reserve at the Crown Grill, $29/pp, or you may want to try Planks for $12/pp. I don't know what you mean by ethnic food, but there usually are some Caribbean selections, for example jerk chicken. There are usually an Asian selections at the buffet and there are also some theme nights there.
We were on the Caribbean in January. We enjoyed the selections for all meals at the World Fresh Marketplace buffet. By the way, made to order omelets are available every morning in the Planks/Steamers section, no charge for breakfast or lunch. On Princess the buffet area is open from 6am until late evening every day. It never closes during that time. Walk in anytime.
You may also enjoy the morning cont. choices and the paninis, salads, soups and desserts at the International Cafe open 24/7, no charge.
