Default entrees or desserts that you'd receommend

Are there any menu items (entrees, desserts to die for) that anyone recalls as particularily worth ordering? Something out of ordinary or delicious?
(Specifically cruising on Carnival Destiny)--

I have not even cruised before, we go 4/10/05 (my birthday!), anyway, I heard the dessert that was to die for was, if I remember correctly, "baked Alaskan". Have you ever had that before??

P.S. I love to eat also and the food is one of the things that I can't wait for!

RE: Baked Alaska--
Worth every calorie, I sometimes cannot tolerate dairy products however this dessert was worth the risk. They used to light it and parade around, I think too much liability so "show" has been calmed down a bit. I could have eaten most of my tablemates share of this dessert. My one memorable must have on a cruise. My husband had some kind of baked choc souflee that was very interesting also one night.

The Chocolate Souflee...I will save room just for this and eat three servings of it. Make sure to have one with and one without sauce. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. The baked Alaska is pretty good, but if you're not a huge meriengue fan, it's nothing to write home about. The souflee on the other hand...

baked alaska is good, chocolate souffle is good, my son had the chocolate cake in chocolate milk & enjoyed it. the pumpkin soup is good. buttered steak is good, my daughter says salmon is good. i thought the lobster was tough, order something else. really, almost everything is good and if you find you don't like what you ordered, it will happily be replaced with something more to your liking. my son even got peanut butter & jelly on toasted bread one night.

I'm with Dusty - creme brulee is THE best dessert I've had on either cruise. Pumpkin soup (just try it!) is not to be missed. Lamb chops not too bad, either.

I agree with what everyone has said about the pumpkin soup, its a must try. When I ordered it I wasn't sure how it might be but it was really a treat. I liked the beef wellington also. You have to try the butter pecan ice cream. I know it doesn't sound like much but you can't find any like it at any store, we have tried!! When we took our second cruise we made sure to ask what kind it was. Our waiter said it was Haagan Das but the butter pecan you buy in the grocery store tastes nothing like the ice cream on the ship

When we had trouble deciding between desserts, we got both!! The chocolate souffle was great but there was another souffle also,,,,,hazelnut or vanilla with hazelnut sauce, not sure but it was wonderful also. I'm not much on baked Alaska, tasted like an ice cream cake to me, not bad but not great either. Pumpkin soup is not to be missed!

I loved the chocolate decadence desserts, also. Plus, hubby and I both went ga-ga over the chilled avocado soup. There was a chilled strawberry bisque that my sister-in-law and I both loved, too (I am very fond of chilled soups!)...it could've been a dessert rather than a "starter"!...For entrees, of course, the lobster is great, as is filet mignon....but if they offer it, I recommend the Beef Wellington -- verrrry good! My husband raved about the tiger shrimp.

Actually, this could get quite long....I thought the food was very good each and every night!

Remember: you can have everything on the menu, if you're so inclined!

The crab cakes are the absolute best!!! I think they are actually an appetizer, but on the night they served them, I had them as the appetizer and the main meal - VERY good!!!

The Tiger Prawns in Chardonnay Cream Sauce is a must have. I have it on every CCL cruise I go on and is one of the things I look forward to the most - and the only thing I order two of. I meant to buy a cookbook to get the recipe, but forgot, so now I have to go on another cruise just to get them.

I agree with the chocolate souffle-yummy!!! creme brulee my husband loved! These 2 were on the same night so we just shared. Another thing that I really enjoyed that was different was the chilled cucumber soup. If you like cucumbers, try it. One thing that we didn't try but wish we had was the "dessert cheeses". I had not heard of cheese for dessert before, but now we wish we would have maybe just a least tried it to see what exactly makes a cheese a dessert.
