constellation food
so, let's hear about the food on the constellationcelebrity cruiseline. My dh and I are going on a transatlantic cruise in April 2005. Are there any foods to avoid or foods to definitely try? Also, are there any tables for 2 in the main dining room?

Fabulous...fabulous...fabulous....just came off a 13-night to Canada/New England on the Connie and I didn't have a bad dining room meal on the entire trip.

We had a wonderful waiter...Magudel and whatever he recommended was perfect.

As far as getting a table for two, there are some but some of them are near the elevators where they go down for the food. See the maitre'de when you first there to see what he can do.

The buffet is wonderful...the best-kept secret is to go way in the back to sit. Nicer chairs. There's a fresh pasta bar and great sandwiches and salads way in the aft of the buffet.

Don't miss the Cova Cafe for its croissants, only in the morning hours, they are addictive.

Try the specialty restaurant at least once, if you like gourmet food. Call the day you go to pre-order the chocolate souffle for's wonderful.

Have a great cruise and don't worry about the food, it will be great.

Re: constellation food
We really enjoyed the appetizers in the dining room. My husband had a wonderful polenta dish that was fabulous! Probably the only thing we were dissappointed with was the lobster (but then I'm spoiled - I'm from Nova Scotia and caribbean lobster is NOT the same as atlantic lobster!) Everything else, from the soups to the desserts, was wonderful. Also the escargot was to die for!

Enjoy your cruise! The food presentation was quite nice as well.
