going on the Constellation on the 23rd of April. I am really looking forward to the sushi, as no one in my family cares for it. I had sushi on RCL but to be honest, it wasn't the best. I hope I have better luck on the "Connie" I would appreciate it if someone gave an honest opinion of what they thought of it on either RCL Celebrity or both. Thanx
Hi we were on the Connie last April and we really enjoyed the sushi. It was mostly salmon and tuna and I think some rolls. It was the same offerings each night. We had late seating dinner and loved having sushi around 6pm on our balcony with a glass of wine. The Connie is a beautiful ship and I am sure you will have the time of your life.
I am cruising Carnival Glory 4/2 and my 12 y.o. and I are looking forward to the sushi as well! We are eating at 8, and I like BMK's idea of myself enjoying a glass of wine with my predinner sushi appetizers! Does anyone know what selection is on Glory?
The Sushi On Glory was OK, don't get to excited. I like to go and have a couple of Sushi appetizers before going to the dining room for dinner. Sashimi its not, however some very nice rolls. The Sushi was much better, with asorted sashimi, on the Mariner even with a Choice of 4 or 5 Cold Saki's ...mmmmmm. The Asian Station on the Mariner was open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner .. Wow and Killer soups meal after Meal. The Time was much more limited for the Asian Station on the Glory. The Glory had some fantastic meals in the dining room and you'll love the ship.( I'm a Restauranteur and Chef ) Any other Questions Just Ask?
Actually, they do serve sushi in the Victory one day for lunch on the lido at the station that they use to rotate different cuisines every day. Had 3/04. Plain old ordinary. Mostly California type rolls.
My wife and myself had Sushi on the Galaxy (early this month) and Century last year. They also serve Miso soup. Very good to enjoy at 1800h before late seating dinner. So anyone who enjoys Sushi, take the late seating!!! We both loved to eat Sushi daily and never got bored!
is there sushi on adventure? i am going and id love to try it!
and specific kinds to stay away from though? Ive never had it before and dont want to be scared away!!
ps.difference between sushi and sashimi?
Dear Kimxotennis, if you like rice, fish and seaweed, Sushi will be perfect for you. It's definitely worth the try, maybe you gonna love it, maybe hate it. Sashimi is raw fish, while Sushi is prepared with rice and seaweed. It comes together with Shrimp, Salmon, tuna etc., sometimes also vegetables.
The best sushi consists of raw fish on sushi rice (short grained sticky Japanese rice with a very small amount of salt and sugar added) recommended to try: salmon or shake (fresh not smoked) or yellow tail Japanese name hamachi. It's served with picked ginger, soy sauce and wasabi ( a very spicy Japanese horseradish). If you are unfortunate enough not to want to try the raw fish, than try a California roll. that's nori (seaweed sushi rice, crab, avocado and cucumber. almost everyone loves California roll. The bad news is you can't get good sushi on a cruise ship.
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.

We were on the Sapphire in April and they had Sushi on deck a couple of the days at lunchtime...other days were Mexican etc...It was pretty good and very popular...Like a mini buffet or sorts...by the pool
Sushi on a ship? Maybe a California roll or something like that. But I can't imagine eating raw fish that isn't pristinely fresh. Both health and flavor would be huge factors, I'd think. Maybe it's like when I see a restaurant sign that says "Chinese-American food," I don't eat there. Is "cruise-ship-sushi" the same?
We loved the sushi on Mercury in January. A great appetizer around 6 pm when you take second seating for dinner. My husband even enjoyed it and he is a steak and potatoes type who raises beef cattle (Mind you, he used a fork and not chopsticks --lol--). Watch out for the wasabi! If you don't know how to use it, ask someone. Yes, you can get good sushi on a cruise ship.
The sushi on the Carnival Glory wasn't good. In fact, it looked unappetising. I wanted to get some but I saw that the rice was all mushy and "glued together"; and it didn't look that great, so I didn't have any. I haven't been on any other ships, but I hope that there might be some good sushi on RCI (what I'm planning for my next cruise)
Cqkpt originally asked about quality and price. I suspect she will like the ships sushi and especially the price...free for the taking. The attitude you take onto a ship makes all the difference. Slap a smile on your face instead of a sneer and you will have an immensely better holiday.
Lighten up; if you do not want peoples' opinions don't ask for them.
Sushi is art. It requires the freshest ingredients and skilled hands to prepare it. Mass market cruise lines are not known for good sushi--that is ok. They do so many other things well that I have no trouble keeping a smile on my face.
BTW it isn't actually free unless you catch it yourself!
