New Dining room Menu - Mariner


Recommended Posts

Just got off the Mariner Eastern from March 30th cruise till April 6 -- there is a NEW dining room menu that started THIS CRUISE so many off the things you have liked in the past are not there any more. I will say that there are 3 desserts that I loved - Strawberry Pavlova, Mango Parfait and Banana Parfait (this actually may not be a new thing). As to the actual dinners, I was not overly impressed with the food otherwise. There New York strip was done WONDERFULLY well as a RARE meat and some of the prime rib was good. The other things I ate were not impressive.

We'll be on Mariner in June for our 3rd time. I'm excited about a new menu, but please tell me they still have the Vidalia Onion Tart!? We look forward to that one all year.

 

Is there anyone out there who can post the new menu?!

If you have copies of the compasses and menus, it would be greatly appreciated. You could email me at steflja@wideopenwest.com Thank you.

We were on the Mar 30 Mariner sailing as well. The Mariner was our 6th sailing with RCCL and these menus were nearly identical to previous RCCL cruises. Since this was my first Mariner cruise, the menus may be different from previous Mariner cruises but were definitely not new menus to me.

 

I did notice that one night's menu did not match the menu posted outside the doors so gathered one major food item went "missing" causing a change in that menu selection.

 

We had one soup change (or we don't remember seeing it). The Monday night offering was a Hot & Sour Shrimp Soup which my husband said was very good. And yes, the onion tart was available.

 

One of my comments was a request that RCCL provide menus unique to each ship (or as much as can be) to provide a semblance of variety to those of us that are fortunate enough to cruise more than once a year. I like to travel on different ships to see variety in decorations as well as itineraries and feel that a variety in menus would be appreciated by the repeat customers.

On that cruise, but did not get the menus;

 

Will say not too many differences I thought. What is gone: the cod (?) fish dish the first night I remembered from some cruises has been removed and No Jerk Chicken - which elsewhere on some of these boards I have seen people rate as their least favorite main item. One change I did not like was they changed the crab cakes from past recipes (a starter one night) - Much more bready and mushy tasting.

 

My favorite - Tiger shrimp still there

 

Overall, I thought an improvement.

Having attended a few of the cooking presentations on several ships, I have been told that RCCL orders the food for ALL ships, and therefore gets great pricing, quality and can make requests that are honored and fought over. With that in mind, you will see most ships having very similar menus. And much more quality control.
