Which Cruiseline Has the Best Food Luxury Lines
Unfortunately, I've only sailed on one line in this group: Cunard. We ate in the Princess Grill which was wonderful. They could do no wrong. We ate a couple of times in their "Lido" (can't remember what they called it). They could do no right! It didn't take us long to figure out where we'd have our meals! LOL

I recently went on Silversea, and while I was one of the few people who was not overwhelmed with the cuisine, I hguess maybe my expectations were just very high at the time. i found most of the food to be bland tasting with far too much reliance on creamy sauces rather spices and high temperature cooking.

A steak, foe example, would come out a bland grey color with just a dab of sauce next to it, and perhaps a slice of bacon around it.

I would rather have the Ruth Chris sizzling hot steak, carbonized on the outside and melt like butter on the inside.

The lobster was drowned in mushroom gravy 0 just the world's worst sin for me, as lobster is a very delicate flavor and I detest mushroom gravy.

I have not been on Regent or Crystal recently, unfortunately, so I cannot say. I do remember finding some of the Crystal Food, especially the Japanese, exquisite, but some of the steak we were served was unacceptably gristly in even the most basic steakhouse.

Regent, I recall having uniformly excellent food, and I will say the same for Seabourn, that was so long ago it is hard to remember.

Never been a food snob, but if its good to eat and presented well, what else can you ask for from a floating hotel :roll: and bulk (even at that price feeding), unless we fall into the trap of "extras", ie for $20-£100 more per person, and you are now presented with what we deem as a presentable meal in our "specialist" restaurant compared to ordinary dining.

mmmm, dont get it never will
