I have had the displeasure of having turkey for Thanksgiving on at least three cruises. I must say it was not particularly good on any of the three cruise lines. What is so difficult about making decent turkey. I fancy myself a great cook of turkey, and it is not that hard to do plus turkey holds quite well over time as compared to other main dishes. I just don't get it!
Has anyone ever had good or even fair turkey on a cruise ship. If so, please share...
We sailed on the Golden Princess last Thanksgiving and most of the meal was good, and even interesting food. The turkey itself was a disaster though....it had hamburger gravy on top! I kid you not! We generally ate late that cruise in PC dining, so maybe they ran out that night?? The PC dining rooms were jammed all night (hey, it's Thanksgiving) so maybe they didn't plan on quite so many people having the turkey? In any case, the pumpkin creme brulee made up for it...that was tasty!
We travelled on Thanksgiving two years ago on Mercury. After spending Thanksgiving day on the beach in Aruba, I must say we were pleased to see a very decent Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings (including very good turkey) .
