Sorry that you had an unpleasant cruise on the Ryndam. My dear MIL and I cruised on her in March to the Western Caribbean and we enjoyed our meals in the MDR and PG. In fact, I don't recall a bad meal at all and I'm pretty particular. I'm not a big fan of the Lido on any ship so tend to steer clear of that venue. I would hope that you would give HAL another try before scratching them off your list.
