We just completed another cruise on Princess three days ago, makes a total of 4 with Princess over the last 12 months, about 10 weeks of sailing. During this period, we also did 5 weeks on Regent, but that is an all inclusive which must be something like those river cruises you mention, we have never did one of those, except for the Mississippi about 14 years ago. I've eaten a lot of shrimp as a result.
Anyway, in their main dining rooms, Princess still offers a shrimp cocktail for dinner every day. It comes under the section of the menu titled "always available", they also offer a Caesar salad in that section as well. So I usually order the shrimp cocktail, a Caesars, and then off the entree selection for that day. I sure hope they don't discontinue that practice.
I was on HALfor a Grand Voyage and Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail was on the menu every night. On the following Back-to-back cruise it was only offered a few times. You were lucky that Princess had it every night.
Question - what did you think of your Mississippi River Cruise? I just returned from one last month and the boat was great, food good and service was wonderful. However, there was not much to see except in the starting city and ending city.
