Food selections

When you cruise, do you try new foods or do you stick to thing you know you enjoy?

I'm pretty open to trying something new, but not always. I really like escargot, alligator meat and oysters, so I have them when they are on the menu. What I won't try is rabbit. I wasn't too fond of the frogs legs, but at least I tried them.

I will try almost anything once. The waiter brought escargot as a joke for DH. I was going to try it, but I just couldn't do it. I can eat panfried oysters, but the raw slimy ones are a no go.

We always try new things. I tried escargot for the first time a few years ago in LeBistro. Loved 'em.

I have some favorites that I only eat on the ship. I am not very adventurous when it comes to food. Now drinks on the other hand.....Wink

The escargot on Carnival are really good, and very garlicky. As BAK will agree, they taste so much better than they look. I do prefer pan fried oysters, but the oysters rockafeller are good too.

We raised rabbits for eating when I was a kid. They're very good. As for the question, no I don't try any new foods.

I LOVE buffets! Each and every meal I try to find one item (food) I have not had before - and try it.

The Princess buffets have a wide selection of foods and I am never disappointed in the variety.

The MDR is more 'normal' but the staff soon knows my tastes and brings special cruise treats similar to AuntPinkie (and others) each meal - can you say escargot? (CRAP - who eats snails? Escargot is refined dining. And if I happen to be sitting beside Julia Roberts as she flings her 'snail' across the MDR - I would catch it too -- and eat it! AND be happy! AND in trouble with my wife.

I always try new foods and nothing is off limits – we’ve discovered some truly amazing dishes by being open-minded. On shore, we look for where the locals go, not the tourists, and have found some fantastic meals!

I will try new foods, what escargot taught me was enough butter and garlic anything will taste good!

It is rare that we find something offered on a cruise that we've never had before ourselves, though to be fair we don't eat poultry, pork or red meat so that imposes its own restriction.
