Ok, tell me the truth. Just how good or bad is the food? I have been reading umpteen reviews and most negative remarks are hurled at the food. How bad can it be? I have been to buffets at home and of course they are not even meant to rival New York's or San Francisco's finest restaurants. But you have choices and can get as much as you like. The main dining rooms even took hits. In previous cruises, I have enjoyed the variety of dishes and found quite a few worthy of my praising the chefs. On my last cruise, my traveling companion was like these detractors, criticizing it all as bland. However, I liked the way they made dishes indigenous to each port we were in. I guess it's in what we expect. I am not picky, my friend was extremely so. I was happy, he was not. My only nitpick was that it seemed to me the fancier the dessert, the less taste it had. But someone told me that Europeans aren't always as into sugar as we are, so maybe that explains that. The pastry chefs are European. Can anyone share what they ate, found yummy, what was horrid, etc..... I'd like to know.
