Meal Times

Where do you prefer to eat your meals - Lido or the dining room? Specialty restaurants or maybe even room service?

We start the day with fruit and coffee from room service (about 6am each morning), and then have breakfast after my 5km walk. Lunch is also on the Lido and dinner is always in the MDR. We've never had breakfast or lunch, or even brunch in the Diningroom. Once we had dinner on the Lido deck, but we didn't care for it - having it in the Diningroom is so nice.

anywhere we feel like eating

First thing I do when I get up, is set up the rice cooker and the crock pot. The meat and veggies I took from the buffet last night have already been prepped. Then it's up to the Lido buffet for a cup of coffee or six and some breakfast. Lunch, is wherever we happen to be when we get hungry. Dinner, back to the cabin for some stew and smuggled bourbon .

MDR for Dinner, Lido Buffet for Breakfast, and either a Lido Foodstand or free specialty restaurant for lunch (provided we are not in port. If we are, I look for something local).

I often get up early in the mornings, go up to the Lido, get a cup of coffee and a pastry to get me going, and set the bait hooks off the side of the ship to catch the freshest grouper fish you have ever tasted, then after cleaning it in the kiddie pool, I take it down to the galley to sell it to the chef to fix for the chef's table.

Then I go to the MDR for either Sea-Day Bunch or Port Day Breakfast. For lunch MAYBE something from the deli of not, just depends on my mood. Dinner in the MDR, we tried eating in the Lido the first night of our last cruise, thought we liked it, UNTIL we went back to the MDR the second night, we were sold on going to the MDR from now on. Late night snack either a Ceaser (?) salad from the pizza pirate or room service.

Grouper ? I prefer dolphin or porpoise. That's why I prefer nets.

It's always wherever strikes my fancy at the moment ....

I enjoy the MDR for breakfast and dinner. Hey I am on vacation. I do not want to fight the crowd and dang it I like to be waited on. And lunch is usually very light , like the salad bar or trying something small from the port we are in.

You're right DanyInc. We usually a light breakfast, and we have never gone out for breakfast or brunch at home, so this is a great way to expand our horizons (not waistlines) by enjoying something different, and being waited on.

We take a small magic bullet with us. On most sea days we go to the buffet get fruit and yogurt and make ourselves smoothies. Lunch is usually the buffet for a salad and then the MDR for dinner. We will do a specialty restaurant once a week.
