NCL Eurpoean Cruise and Food

So I am reaching out to see if what I heard about the food on a European NCL cruise is true.

Friends of ours recently told us how bad their food experience was. The husband was ok with the food, not the best he said. The wife on the other hand said he "lost weight" during the cruise since the food was so bad. Her complaint was the food was more European than American. She doesn't care for European food apparently.

I am skeptical that there wasn't anything she could really eat on the ship. So my question is what "style" of food is offered on NCL European cruises?

I sailed NCL Epic in the Med and I thought the food was amazing! The buffet had something for everyone, LOTS of choices.

You can get anything and everything on NCL ships. We went to the Baltics this past May on the Pearl, and was happy with all the food offerings on the ship. True, they do offer some locally-themed choices based on where you are that day in port, but all the usual items are available. We had terrible food choices on a Carnival ship last year in the Saint Islands area, so comparatively speaking, NCL food is fine.(And their 'Premium Dining' choices were excellent- get the free PD pkg. when booking)
