I was on the grand 5/6 and could not agree with you more on the food!! we were hoping for better food than we got. We enjoyed painted desert and sabbatini's,but the dining room food was not up to fine dining ir even good dining. We enjoy food also and eat out 2-3 times a week(not at the local diner). The selections were very weird, i was not looking for frogs legs, rabbit, and other unusual animals. The food was not really hot and the desserts were not fresh and had very little taste. I was very suprised to get the same old hard rolls every night. I think we had better luck on rcl. It was a very nice ship and we also liked the adult pool area.
