Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffet was very poor apart from lunch on Christmas Day it was a seafood extravaganza,and the cakes were beautiful ,even a chocolate fountain. The only reason we went is that one of the chefs mentioned it a few days before ,and he told us to get there early at 11 30. Well we did get there at 11 30 and the queue was the length of the dining room.we were in line over 30 minutes,and sure enough three ladies were holding everyone up,they only had a small area open but the amount of seafood was amazing. And the cake and deserts were beautiful.Such a shame it was only for Christmas . The few other times we went to the buffet they had some lovely roasts.Never saw any roast potatoes or hot vegetables until the 11th day of the cruise This was one of the worst buffets on any of the princess ships we have been on.
