Has anyone else felt restricted in the dining room? One of the great pleasures of cruising is being able to try new foods without fear of ordering an expensive appetizer you hate.
Not ever on Holland America, or most lines. The only place I ever recall being restricted was in a specialty restaurant on Celebrity, where each course was layed out with specific choices. HOWEVER, even there, if there was something I didn't care for, I have no doubt they would have happily replaced it.
In fact most of the time in the main dining rooms, the wait staff will start off by telling you to please tell them if something is unsatisfactory.
