Default Princess Dinner Menu

Hey all! I have cruised before, but only with Carnival. I was looking at a sample menu for Princess, who I cruise with in September, and noticed more categories. With Carnival, we have always picked one item from each of the 3 sections (unless we wanted more of something). Is it normal to select one item from each of the 5 on Princess, or are those just alternates? We are not affraid to ask for seconds if we wish, but I don't want to over order if that isn't the idea. Thanks!!

We always order 1 or 2 appetizers each, soup, salad & usually 1 main course BUT I'll get a second main course if I'm hungry enough or if I know from past experience what they give you is small in size, like 3 tiny lamb chops. Their vegetables serving size is a joke by anyone's standards & you'll quickly learn to tell them up front to double the portion. Their idea of a serving size of veggies is something like this.

The only problem that I can encounter by asking for a larger portion for a main course is that if I don't particularly like the item or the meat is really tough I sort of force myself to eat it rather than waste it. (like Prime Rib) Usually it' just OK but it can be as tough as leather & they do like to over cook most thinks like that. Even ordering a steak on the rare side, it always comes back medium to well done.

Talking Ordering

There is no "rule" about what you can, or should, order. Order what you like. I frequently order two appetizers, or both soup and salad. In fact some nights, I will just order salad and then three appetizers to be brought as my main course! Your waiter will be very cooperative. The only thing I have noticed is that these days they are not as generous with offering additional servings on lobster night.

When your waiter says something isn't that great & tries to steer you towards as certain dish, BELIEVE HIM. They here & see the constant complaints week after week about the same dishes and know from their experience what people rave about & just don't eat.
