Say it isn't so! DW and I are booken on the Westerdam in May. We've sailed HAL several times and have never had anything but great food and plenty of options in the Lido (I'm assuming that's what you mean by "buffet"). That's our version of "freestyle" dining and superior to anything NCL can offer IMHO. Is there no more pasta area? Deli sector?
stir fry?? I'm confused
