I’m hoping they have ribs at the buffet on day one. Anyone have any idea if they do?

 

Thanks🛳🛳🛳

In 5 cruises on Royal, I can definitively say: yes. And, no.  Some cruises have had ribs, some haven't. Depends on the chef, stock, etc.  Usually - they're in the Horizon Court section, more aft - not the Court area. There's lots of other good food too though, even when there's not ribs.

I was just on the Royal and I highly advise you to first stop by Alfredo's and have the Veal Raviolis "Agnolotti Gratinati all Piemontese" with a salad.

 

To die for!

 

Enjoy your cruise.

What if they are like me and don't like Veal? Sure wouldn't be to die for.😀

You will spend the entire cruise looking for the veal in the ravioli, I think they use veal stock for the sauce.

I know many who would disagree the food is good at the buffet, myself included.  But then again, food is so very subjective.

 

The most overused word on this website "subjective" Princess has one or two really good items, but the rest are truly just average. There is not one restaurant in any city trying to replicate Princess food and stay in business. My 5 cents!

Your tastes must be very discriminating. 

If so, what are you doing on a Princess ship as the food quality doesn't get much better that that?

I don't eat in the buffet and don't eat the same food as you, and don't sail that often with princess. But what difference does it make to you if I do sail with princess? I am just making a comment about certain foods.

the adjective in this phrase is subjective to each individual.  🙄😏

I believe the greater majority would agree that among the buffets of all the Princess ships the Royal class has the best to offer. 

Of course if buffet isn't you choice for eating then you should stick to the DR or a better cruise line for the more discriminating people.

Princess is my cruise line.  As you said, though, buffet just isn't my thing.  I love Alfredo's on the royal class ships.  that is my go to place on port days when the MDR isn't open for lunch.  And if you knew me, it just isn't that I am discriminating that much, it is just that I hate running around putting food that everyone can breathe on onto my plate and then finding a place to sit and then eating cold food.  It is so nice, especially on vacation, to be waited on instead of having to do it yourself!

Our standards are definitely much more lenient than yours. 😎

We can quickly grab lunch without having to kill an hour waiting for someone to serve us.

btw- We always secure a seat before getting our food and this way there's no searching afterwards.

I understand ya.  We usually have phones, etc. with us and nothing to leave at seats so if we secure seats first, one of us goes to get food and then the other. Then we end up not eating together!  I guess we could just tip chairs up etc., but again.....  And that is the part of cruising that I love, the killing time over a meal be it breakfast. lunch, or dinner!!!  But I know people who would rather be at a bar, at trivia, or by the pool, etc.  So many choices is good!!!
