Default Re: Cruise cuisine?

I guess menus are no longer prepared as a souvenir from the dining room steward, so here are some highlights from memory: just back from oosterdam--things we enjoyed:
Lido-sushi and stir-fry specials daily at lunchtime; grilled panini sandwiches (prosciutto,pear, cheese on focacia), different ice creams (coconut and rum raisin!), salad bar,hamburger and veggie burgers at pool.......breakfast -most everything in lido,
dining room--appetizers like escargot, jumbo shrimp cocktail, fruit cups, tenderloin carpaccio, quesadillas, spring rolls,crab and avocado terrine, entrees like grouper, halibut, lobster tails, tenderloin, sirloin, prime rib, lamb chops, duck, plus some interesting vegetarian. usually one salad, plus caesar each night. usually 4 appetziers, at least 2 soups-usually one chilled. usually 5 entrees. waiter should always ask how you like -med rare, med, etc, i always ask waiter for a recommendation--they know what is good..........for a truly wonderful chicago quality steak , reserve a spot at the pinncle grill now--fabulous 10 ounce tenderloins were devoured by all men in my family! and great crabcakes appetizers at pinnacle--superior to ones we had later in week at dining room.
coffee from room service in am on verandah is nice---

we always enjoy the food on Hal--seems easiest to eat for a week or two at a time without getting restaurant burnout whcih we always seem to experience at resorts or while on non=cruise type extended trips.. or even on weekends at home!!

i am hardly doing justice to the chefs!
