Sure sounds really good to me!! :)

 

 

Thanks for going to all that work for us, KK. You must have spent more than a few minutes while aboard making note of all these menu entrees before you left. That was VERY thoughtful of you.

We are not big eaters. But DH noticed that all the fish proportions in the dining room were rather small - some nights there was barely 2 ounces of salmon. But if you ordered the veal, or lamb, or prime rib - the proportions were too much.

Since I decided that it would be too much weight to bring home 21 dinner and 21 dessert menus, I just took one sheet of paper and each morning wrote down the entrees and flambees. Second day of cruise DH was already warning me about weight limits on the plane going home.

There were a lot of choices - all good in our opinion.

Thanks so much. Your efforts are truly appreciated. They bring back memories, as I recall many of these items from our recent cruise. Knowing that John Mulvaney is now HAL's instructor chef, I'm sure there is more continuity in the food quality and offerings among ships.

KK - Many thanks for taking the time to share the info. There certainly was a nice variety from which to make a selection. However, seeing that several flambes were offered has me puzzled. When we were on the Oosterdam this past March, we inquired of our D.R. Captain if it would be possible to request crepes suzettes for dessert the following evening. He told us that they were no longer permitted to prepare flambes in the dining room due to it being a fire hazard and that he, personally, was very displeased with this policy. We could understand his displeasure, of course, because from our past experiences he would have been the one to prepare a flambe dessert and be monetarily thanked by the pax making the request. Am now wondering why it would be prohibited on one HAL ship, but not on another. :confused:

When we were on the Noordam this summer there was a flambee every night and I had it every night. :)

 

When we had been on other ships (Maasdam and Ryndam), the Maasdam rarely had a flambee and the Ryndam only had a few. Our first HAL trip on the Noordam back in 2001 there was also a flambee everynight.

 

So it seems to be something different from ship to ship or maybe where the ship is sailing. Both of our Noordam cruise were European trips.

We were also surprised to see that a flambee was offered nearly every evening. But Doddy, our area captain, said that the only time the Statendam doesn't have a lot of flambees is when she is in Alaska.

It does make one wonder why one ship can have flambees nearly every night while on ships like the Oosterdam, flambees are offered only 1 or 2 times a week and then it can only be prepared in the Explorer's Lounge at a certain time.
