I find tuna too dry that way so Caprese salad,grey mullet and tarte citron but the b&b pud was a close second.

Bread and butter pudding used to be on the “always available” list. When we were on 7 Arcadia to the fjords with my cousin and her husband he had it for dessert every night!

I always order the seared tuna when it's on the menu. It's always been pink inside and lovely. Maybe I've been lucky. It's only on the menu once during a cruise so I never miss. I wish they'd put it on more than once like they do some others.  I've tried replicating it at home but can't get it the same. They must use a secret ingredient😆

I love swordfish. I don't know if it's me , but the dark flesh seems to  have the flavour of kippers. The first time we had swordfish was about 40 years ago in a tiny taverna in Kefalos. It was served with fried onions and a fried egg on top. It was amazing. I've never seen it served like that since, but I still do it like that when I occasionally cook it at home.

Agree, dislike tuna, but love swordfish.  Sole, lobster, prawns - I'm happy.  

The problem with tuna is that it can easily be overcooked which makes it dry and tough. It's like calamari , it only needs showing to the heat.

I have had swordfish twice on P&O, unfortunately both occasions it was dry and overcooked.

We're lucky,the beach restaurant griddles it in garlic and olive oil which is lovely and our local restaurant does a more tender saucier version also lovely,lol.Bro Brian.

I like a 2 hr fight with my swordfish and then wrestle it to the deck.Trouble is the fishmonger gets the hump and throws me out.

Kedgeree in the real world tonight, followed by a lovely cheeseboard, courtesy of Father’s Day at the weekend


I had the potted shrimp last year. Never heard it before but it wasn’t as I expected and I didn’t like it. 
I was surprised that it was cold

might have to look at the glass house tomorrow. 
 

I find the mdr hit and miss but I seems to be better that trying to get a buffet with the kids.

Treacle tart is popular. Must be cos it’s a good old british pud

It's much too sweet for me. It sets  my teeth on edge. I like ice cream and creamy desserts, and did I mention ice cream? 😊

That is one reason why I prefer Princess and Cunard to P&O the food is more International dont go on holiday wherever it might be to eat Liver & Onions and Bread & Butter pudding. Really do think P&O should be a little bit more adventurous and varied with their food.

I agree. There are some menus I did find last year with a whole Caribbean menu that night. I’d love that but I suppose it was for a set destination. 
 

there’s no many rice or pasta dishes compared to the potatoes ones
