Last November on the Golden the dining room was open for lunch the day we boarded. We went there and had the best lunch of our cruise -- crab quiche, prime rib, chocolate souffle.
A great start to our week of over-indulging!
We sailed on the the Grand in Feb. 2002 and one dining room was open for lunch. We ate there at about 1:00 pm. The service was unhurried as most of those aboard seemed unaware that the service was being offered.
