Default Re: Princess Menus


I posted some typical menus in response to a similar inquiry a couple months ago, though the title of the threat was less obviously about menus.

Please note that these are typical menus, but that actual menus on your cruise may vary depending upon availability of various items.

BTW, Princess's dining staff will do just about anything that a passenger requests, so long as they have the ingredients available. If you ask that something be prepared or serverd a certain way or for some variation on a menu item, they usually will find a way to deliver whatever you request. Princess also is very willing to accommodate requests for off-menu items, so long as you ask soon enough so they can break out the ingredients and do the necessary preparation. This may mean that you need to make the request on the previous evening.
