Default POLL-How MANY entrees?? Fess up

This poll requires some honesty gang<G>

At dinner on a cruise, do you politely order ONE entree, or do you make it ONE of EACH?

On very odd occassions, when I simply can't make up my mind, I'll order two different entrees. BUT, what we will do quite often, is order a couple of entrees to be placed in the middle of the table, for everyone to share a taste of..... especially a couple of portions of the pasta to add on to what we ordered.

We, as a family, will sometimes order one extra entree and share it. I, myself, have never ordered but one entree.

Sometimes, none. I load up on first courses, saving room for dessert.

We have always ordered just one entree each. I try to just add a salad to that and save room for dessert, but rarely get there. My husband will do the full course-appetizer etc.

Only on lobster night... I'm a soup and salad girl. I usually have two helping, then save room for dessert.

I have never ordered and eaten more than three lobsters at any meal. Usually only two. Desserts? Now that's different. :o)

Usually stick to just 1 except on lobster night and if I want to try something new....kinda do the same thing as Kuki.....take a bite, and pass it around for others to sample. Desserts.....well occasionally will order 2, but not eat all of either one.

Seeing the portions never seem large enough for me on a cruise normally I always order two entrees for dinner and sometimes three.

I have occasionally ordered two, and hope someone will split it with me...I hate to waste food! Sometimes there are two seafood entrees I cannot decide between, sooooo

Oh, this is a good one....you obviously haven't shared a cabin with SeaFan or some of the others

Anyway...when KayakGuy and I did the Royal Princess Scandinavian/Baltic cruise, he insisted that he usually eats too much on a cruise, so he was ONLY going to eat half of what he ordered....well, bout 3 days into the cruise, he was holding to his promise, eating ONLY half of what he ordered, but he was ordering at least 2 of every course!

Our first cruise was a learning experience where we could not decide between the Lobster & the Pheasant. Found out the last night that we could have had both. I won't be missin' any more of those tempting desserts anymore either!

I'm also another one of Fla Jack's victims - except for me it was desserts that he got me started me on. I usually order a light soup and an entree - will nibble on some bread and sometimes order an appetizer and then a dessert (or two thanks to Fla Jack! lol)

I do remember a certain friend of mine who happens to insist on mashed potatos for supper every night on a cruise.........gotta admit they were pretty good on the last cruise!

I always order one appetizer, one soup, one salad, one entree and three desserts, since I don't care to gain weight on a cruise.

I am a *notorious* multi-entree orderer.

Here is my standard dinner:

* One martini -- extra dry with a twist
* Two appetizers
* One soup
* One salad
* One or two entrees
* A bite or two of one of the desserts (not much a sweet tooth here)

What do I cut out?

* Bread
* Side dishes (rice, pasta etc)

Of course, on Carnival, there is also the Midnight Pizza Run. :-)

If I'm hungry I'll order two entrees, but usually only order one. I'll tell the waiter I will have something, then when I'm done tell him I'll try something else. When I've done this though, dessert is out of the question.

Regards,
Thomas

Usually just one entree but two or three appetizers for me. I sometimes skip soup and salad (or if one of the appetizers is fruit, have that in place of salad).

And the most lobsters I've had in one night is six--on a schooner cruise off the coast of Maine.
