Default Breakfast

Does anyone know on the Golden Princess if the breakfast is always buffet or can you go to the dining room and be waited on as well., and can you get pretty much anything you want? Like eggs over easy? ( my husband wishes to know this )

Robin,

Every Princess vessel has one main dining room that serves breakfast and lunch with full table service on an "open seating" basis. Any passenger may go there for breakfast and lunch, regardless of arrangements for dinner.

The breakfast menu in the main dining room is pretty standard, featuring a selection of juices and fruites, cereals (hot and cold), eggs, breakfast meats, yoqurt, breakfast potatoes, bread/toast, breakfast pasteries, etc. IIRC, the breakfast menu also has French Toast, pancakes, and probably Belgian waffles as well. Nonetheless, the majority of passengers do choose to eat breakfast at the buffet ("Horizon Court" on the newer Princess ships) instead, as the buffet is, faster, open for longer hours, and more convenient to many of the morning activities.

Have a great cruise!

Norm.

To answer your specific question and to add to Norm's answer, in the dining room they have a different menu each day with breakfast entres such as Belgium waffles, eggs benedict, etc. But you can ALWAYS order completely a la carte and get eggs, toast, muffins, etc. any way you want them. Have a great cruise!

Best way to get 2 eggs over easy, right off the griddle... go to the omlette stand, where they make fresh omelletes to order... up in the buffet. They'll be glad to make them for you... and they'll be piping hot. No way you can get them hot in the sit down restaurant... too much time from kitchen to table.

I prefer the Buffet as I anjoy eating breakfast with my family or friends. In the dining room they fill up tables as passengers come in and you usually have to sit with strangers. They do not like to have empty seats at a table for some reason. Just MHO. Helen

I was told you can even order anything you want for breakfest and they will deliver it to your room. All you have to dois write in what you want on hte card htey give you the night before and what time you want it. It will be nice to have breakfest on the Balcony and watching the view.

But if the item you want is not in the special that day, such as Eggs Benedict, you have to ask your headwaiter to order it for you for the next day. You can't get it that day if it isn't the special item of the day.

It is more efficient that way as they don't have as much staff on duty for breakfast and lunch. We like being served and meeting new people so we usually have all of our meals in the dining room.

I was told that too and planned to test it on our recent Alaska cruise but since we were with my in-laws, kids and grandkids, we didn't have an opportunity for breakfast in the room. There sure isn't much room on that breakfast tag to order anything besides the limited amount they seem they want to serve.
