It will be Tandoori for me this Sunday and Mongolian Wok for my husband. I’m really excited to try the key lime pie too

I have to have my escargot. And I'll end up with an ice cream cone before my cabin is ready!

Before I board I'm already salivating over our first Steakhouse dinner. There are other foods I enjoy, like Guys burgers, chocolate melting cake, etc., but they're something I expect/accept - not special - Steakhouse is special and I look forward to cruises where we have three nights booked more than cruises with two nights booked.

Guys. I don't ever remember seeing the Key Lime Pie on the first day. It always seemed later in the cruise.

There was once a red-skin potato salad that I looked forward to as a part of my very first Lido lunch of the cruise. Now that they've done away with it, I head for Guy's and have a burger instead.

I had the same experience. People were chowing it down though.

Probably a sailaway glass of champagne. Usually, myfirst meal is something not that remarkable from the buffet.

Watermelon from the taco bar....it is often very tasty whereas what is sold where I live is usually bland or awful. After that, I look forward to shrimp cocktail every night, any of the chilled fruit soups in the main dining room...
and now you have inspired me to try the fish tacos!
