Thank you for this post, I think I'll be eating a lot of steak. Is there anything in particular that you would recommend? I don't suppose there is any chance of you getting a menu from the western leg, is there?

I'm doing a Western Zuidy in August and I'll post 'em then... can you hold on awhile?

My faves were:
  1. Farfalle with Smoky-grilled Portabella Mushrooms (I ordered the pepper-crusted steak but it was WAY too hot for me
  2. Floridian Grouper with Smoked Salmon
  3. Pan Seared Gulf Red Snapper
  4. Cream of Four Mushrooms Soup
  5. Hazelnut Crusted Perch
  6. Escargots
  7. Chilled Strawberry Bisque
  8. Fettuccini Frutti Di Mare (I ordered the Osso Buco but it was fatty
  9. All the chilled soups
  10. Baked Hazelnut Encrusted Brie
  11. Creme Brulee
If you want a really great steak, go to the Pinnacle... the Petit Filet was outstanding!

Candy <-- getting hungry

Candy,

As long as you can post it before the 26th of August. I'll take your advice on the Pinnacle, we have a complementary visit there during the Western leg of our b2b. Thanks again for taking the time to post.

HAL needs to add more appetizers for the dinner menu.


One thing I'm REALLY CRAVING FOR.... a salmon mousse

Smoked salmon, wrapped in smoked trout... that velvety,creamy salmon mousse with cucumber relish.....

HEAVEN!!!

Did they drop the Nasi Goreng yet???


Don't get me wrong ... I liked both.
But the rice wasn't the same!! In fact, I wasn't able to really enjoy the nasi for dinner...

Of course, for dinner you end up lingering more with the company at the table. And the rice in the Nasi didn't do the trick like the noodles did. The rice ended up as a pasty, gooey solution, that didn't hold the same as Bami.

Nasi is fine for a small portion for lunch ...

But, for dinner ... BAMI works better

Thanks, Candy, this helps in determining what night we will eat in the Pinnacle.

Did they change the menus? The ones listed here look disappointing at best. I saw some others that looked very interesting. Did not notice any jumbo shrimp cocktail, no crab legs.

I'm missing Monday night's menu (formal night). Ralph had the crab legs and they were great. Jim thinks the jumbo shrimp cocktail was on the menu... sorry my memory is failing.

No one should be expecting any major changes of menu selections from cruise to cruise, East or West, etc. If you are doing a b2b the menus will just repeat. They are all pretty much exactly the same on every ship, every cruise except for an occasional variation which may have to be made for food availability. If a major change is made it would be made throughout the ships- such as the addition of the 'comfort food' category, a daily pasta selection, etc.

We did have the crab legs the first formal night also.

Can you answer a question for me?

Is the Pinnacle menu the same every night, and what do they serve on the night there is lobster? Is that the only place and night to enjoy lobster - in the main dining room on Thursday night?

Thanks!

The Pinnacle menu is the same each night. I have heard that lobster is available on the second formal night, but it might be a good idea to call ship services and ask when you make your reservation.

My recommendations are the planked halibut, planked scampi or petit filet. For dessert, the Creme Brulee is to die for, and someone at the table MUST order the Chocolate Volcano.

Candy <-- loves the Pinnacle

Okay, so if you want lobster, it is one night, one dining room only or...can you order lobster room service that night???? That would be rather cool to eat lobster out on your deck!

You seem to have everything, do you have the Pinnacle menu also?
