Kuki I agree with you, we have not been on the fun ships for a while now but what we remember the pie was pretty good. I must say that Celebrity is getting better at it. Being from New York they say the water is the key to a great pizza.
1. Seeing that I have only sailed on Celebrity so far....my vote is for Celebrity.
2. The best pizza in the world is from a little shop in Pittsburgh called "Sir Pizza"
Don't think they deliver to Canada Kuki, but come and visit me and I'll be sure
you will sample some.
Actually the one meal I've yet to try while cruising is pizza, why, because we have the best pizza around in Chicago, just no comparing, so I don't even try. I'd rather get some of the food I don't normally eat except for cruising. On one trip to Hawaii years ago I was talking to a man from another part of the country and when I told him I was from a suburb of Chicago, he said "best pizza anywhere" and of course I had to agree:-) Actually Kuki we have a great place we usually get pizza from and we can ship it, so send me your address and I'll send some off, its Lou Malnati's, just the best you've had!!!
Of course, since you're from Chicago you're familiar with Pizzeria Uno I'm sure. My brother's Godfather started Pizzeria Uno. He'd had pizza in a town at Lago di Como, Italy. He loved it so much he brought the chef to the US and started Pizzeria Uno. His wife was my Godmother. On the menu of Pizzeria Uno they talk about Florence's minestrone. Well minestrone never passed her size 4 lips! She was a great old girl though, just like my other godmother who took me around the world. She died last year at age 96. She looked wonderful, a pure fasion plate, right up until the end.
New Yorker here and our pizza is really quite good, but I've had Chicago pizza and that ain't bad either. All you have to do is go on a tour of the "Good Ole USA" Kuki and I'm sure there is one of us in every city to take you to sample pizza, then you can decide for yourself.
All this talk about pizza is making me very nostalgic. I now have to live on a low carb diet, no pizza, pasta, bread, potatoes, white flour, white rice or anything with sugar. There are good substitutes for bread and sugary deserts, but the substitutes for pizza and pasta leave an awful lot to be desired.
I'm orgianally from the Chicago Area also they truely have many, many good pizza places. One of the best used to be Barones in the western burbs. People from New York City know their pizz too. Don't ever let a "true" Californian tell you anything about pizza, they have no idea. As far as cruising, Carnival's the best, although they could stand a little more cheese.
We've sailed on about a dozen lines, and the best pizza, hands down, is (surprisingly) Carnival. The rest of their food may be mediocre, to good, their pizza is the best ship pizza. On land, Totonno's, in Brooklyn. They've been making the pizza the same way, in the same brick oven, for a zillion years. They're only open week-ends, and when they run out of dough, they close for the night.....
I sailed on the Carnival Triumph in 99 and declared it the best pizza on any ship! But when I was on the Ocean Princess in spring of 2000 Carnival had definatly been beat! My littel sister (9) and I (18) would every day return to the ship and head to the top of the Grand Plazza to Fabio's and eat the best pizza we have ever had. What added to the over all exeperience was that Fabio's is at the top of the Grand Plazza so you can look down and see all the activity below. The servie in Fabio's was also execelent! While on the Carnival Triumph the pizza place is by the aft pool and you eat it while you watch every one get in and out of the pool. So my vote definatly goes for the Ocean Princess!
As for my vote for land bais pizza try California Pizza in the Copely Plazza in Boston! I know Boston seems odd for pizza but no were else do I know that you can get PeKing Duck Pizza!
