Only for the first night of my first cruise was I apprehensive. Of course I was travelling with a bunch of WTH cruise travel agents, so I should have just followed their lead. Subsequent nights I did. I joked that our waiter needed to bring a legal sized notepad to take orders for our table.
Now I just order what feels right. If I see 2 entrees that interest me, I will order both. I figure while I'm still young and have a fairly healthy metabolism, may as well enjoy it right?
