We enjoyed Le Cirque on the Nieuw Amsterdam when it was first introduced -- even with the limited menu at that time.

On our Alaskan cruise we didn't go because Joe didn't want to lug an extra jacket since we had to take extra heavy clothes.

But when we do our Caribbean cruises will definitely go again.

I really did not like the resturant on my last cruise ( had dinner 2 other times in Pinnacle and they were fine ) but might give this new menu a try, thanks for the info.

That price has not gone up yet - still $40 for the dinner. $60 if you do the wines with it.

The wines were okay the time we did Le Cirque -- but I think that we will order our own wine when go again.

Someone reported that not all of the ships have the new menu yet. I sure hope that it is on our next cruise.

We liked the origianl menu even though it was limited -- I know others didn't like it.

But we are looking forward to trying the new menu as well.

we are booked in 50 days on Zuiierdam will try it again if its the new menu. Wonder if it is possible to find that out before the cruise?

Hi George

That is hard to predict. I still went ahead and prebooked Le Cirque a couple of times for our next cruise.

Once we get on the ship -- I am going to stop by the Pinnacle and see if our ship is doing the new menu. Then we will make up our minds if we still want to go or not.
