Default It's the little things....

Thinking hard about booking our next cruise.

Is there a line that offers COLD milk at breakfast?
Our last cruise did not and it just cast a pall.

I don't go to the dining room for breakfast, but at the buffets on Carnival, they have cold regular milk and chocolate milk cartons on ice.

When cruising, we neveler go to the dinning room. We are more comfortable with the buffet and enjoy the food and beverage selection much better, this includes cold milk. My kids are teens and the buffet offers them a much more food.

Rirruto,
Thanks

attagirl,
What line gives you the cold milk in buffet?

We are currently in "book" mode and need all the help we can get.

Hombre,
Read all of my posts before you throw out a "My goodness" judgement, ok?
We sweated in our balcony cabin each night and then drank warm milk for breakfast.
I offered an easy solution for this...pack the milk cartons in ice just as the sandwich meat and cheese.

Is it too much to ask that milk be served a couple degrees below ROOM temperature?

Hmm, cold milk is not what I would really want on a cruise, beside the fact that after a certain age milk is not something we need to drink--check out links and info on it, you will be suprised at how bad cows milk is for us. This past January when I was on the Victory the milk and other items that neded to be kept cool were always on ice.

There are not many things that wouldruin a cruise, but cold milk is not one of them....shipwide problems, technical problems, or bad weather (hurricanes) would ruin a cruise....

You probably should check with a reputable healthcare professional before trusting those links on the Internet. I read all the information then asked my family doctor of 20+ years, who is a well respected board-certified physician in both Internal Medicine and Clinical Nutrition. She debunked all the "cows milk is bad" info. that I had read and recommended that I keep drinking 2 to 3 glasses a day for the MANY health benefits. Something I was glad to hear since I LOVE milk!

I have yet to find a cruise ship (or any restaurant, either, for that matter) that keeps it cold enough for my tastes. I have already resigned myself to the fact that I will be doing without my favorite beverage for 10 days on my upcoming cruise. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it turns out otherwise.

Rinker, I would have thought the same thing that Hombre stated by looking at your posts on THIS thread. You did not say anything about the rest of your cruise. I think that flaming was a little out there.

Now, I agree that milk should be prepared to how the individual wishes it to be. Some like warm milk to go to sleep with, some like cold milk, some like ice milk (me, me) like in ice cream. As just a suggestion, next time pour it over ice and chill it that way. Yes, I have had to do just that before.
