I'm curious what everyone's favorite cruise line is for dining - included food only, not taking into consideration ANY specialty restaurants. Say someone asked your opinion about it, but said they wouldn't be spending any money on food while onboard. Which line would you recommend?
Mine are Viking ocean and Carnival. Everything on Viking was included, even the "specialty" Italian restaurant. The only thing that wasn't is the Chef's Table experience but I didn't do that. They make their pasta onboard and I just really loved the food onboard, even in the MDR. Plus, there were always options that I could recognize and knew I would like. Sometimes lines get too fancy for me and nothing sounds appetizing, which is discouraging for my more simple palette. That brings me to my other favorite: Carnival. I love grab and go handhelds, pasta, Asian, etc. and Carnival seems to have an abundance that's included. Guy's BBQ lunch and burgers, BlueIguana, the free lunch at Cucina and Jiji, etc.
