[quote Krazy Kruizers]We haven't been very impressed with the food in the Neptune Lounge on our last few cruises.

Picky, picky, picky.
We returned yesterday from 11 days on the Noordam. The Neptune Lounge was a highlight of the trip. The ladies were helpful with everything; and, as mentioned by Spender Nui, it meant we rarely had to join the lines at the front office. They even snagged us a last minute excursion 15 minutes before the excursion started.
The food was pretty much the same every day, but it was good. It's there for snacks, not meals. Chefs came to the lounge several times a day to make sure that the food quality and presentation are OK.
Don't forget to eat breakfast at the Pinnacle Grill. While we weren't keeping count, our best guess is that we had six breakfasts at Pinnacle, two from room service, and three at the Lido. The first Lido breakfast was to see what it was like. For the other two, we were hungry and went to the Pinnacle, but it wasn't open yet; so the Lido was the only place that was open. For light eaters, the Neptune has enough food for a good breakfast. We like something hot, so we usually grabbed some juice, fruit and a cappucino (and maybe a pastry or some meusli) at the Neptune, then went down to the PG. Heavenly!
