Harry, I think there is confusion here. The way I understand it (and have experienced it and the way Princess explained to me) is there are 5 menus. One is traditional and changes everyday. You can experience traditional in both the main-traditional dining room or any of the 4 alternatives. The 4 alternatives EACH have a spearate menu -- BUT those menus remain the same throughout the cruise. Thus FIVE menus -- one at each alternative = 4, plus the traditional = 5. I think because the 4 alternative dining rooms don't change their menus, people get confused as it gets explained as 'the same'. That's how I see it, anyway.
