Wonderful food. The only meal I ate on the ship where I wanted more! But this quality of food was what I expected from the dining room every night, without having to pay $35/person. Read Full Review

Best filet mignon I've ever had. Perfectly seasoned, and perfectly cooked to my request of a medium rare, although my husband claimed that his was a bit too rare for his taste. The cheesecake was hum... ongous. The lobster bisque was more like lobster soup. But overall, a great dining experience. Read More

My husband (who did not like most of the food on the ship), went here several times. He also went for a malt or milkshake for dessert.

The atmosphere here is calming as opposed to the craziness of the Windjammer buffet. The food is good, but some of it does come from the Windjammer buffet bar. A couple of the main entrees are creat... ed special from the food off the Windjammer bar, but they are good. You will not get too much food here as it is just right. Also, they serve cheesecake here as an option here that you never see on the buffet until the last evening when they offer every cake imaginable as a last bang. Read More

Terrible presentation, very bland and boring meals with nothing adventurous or unique. Desserts were poorly prepared (dry cakes, gritty lemon curd, only strawberry/vanilla/chocolate ice cream). Them... es would have been terrific. As it was, menus felt disjointed and uninspired. Read More Read Full Review

When you find yourself craving pizza, drop by Sorrento''s for a piping hot slice. Grab a specialty pie for the whole family, a Cheese and Pepperoni slice for the road, or choose... from many Italian favorites from Sorrento''s menu. There''s something for everyone. more

Our family split several times because not all of use wanted the same thing. My husband and daughter enjoyed the pizza here a few nights.

The pizza was ok. It's what you expect for a free meal being feed to the masses. My kids loved eating here because it was open when they were ready to eat and no large lines.

Open nearly all day and all night, the Windjammer offers great food, spectacular views, and an attentive wait-staff, all in a casual atmosphere. In the evenings, the caf''s casua... l atmosphere is complemented by a changing menu and restaurant-style service.

I would have liked to see more variety in the snack area. Yes, the cruise has all you can eat, but they lack things like chips, pretzels and popcorn. I was also in search of a pack of gum and could... not find it on this ship. They do have a few items like Pringles and crackers, but not a bag of pretzels anywhere. Sometimes you just don't want a sweet or fruit for a snack! Read More
