Default Sports Bar foods are not available!

We like dining in the main dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner but occasionally we would like to be able to order snack (junk) foods while having a cold beer in the sports bars.

Mrs. Thomas is a nachos afficionado and would eat them for breakfast most of the time if she could, but certainly has been disappointed not being able to order them while in the bar. I would like some buffalo wings or fried cheese sticks too.

Anybody else think they should offer snack foods in the sports bars?

Regards,
Thomas

Of course! like those little nut mix things - something to munch on anyway. Besides - if they were smart - they WOULD do it - the more salties you eat - guess what - the more drinks you buy.

Ugh no more food! If they had stuff like that in the bars then many people would come back from their crruise not five pounds heavier but TEN!

I agree. And why not have these tasty snacks available through room service too?

PS - There might be a ray of hope for Mrs. Thomas - on my last cruise (W. Caribbean), the ship had a chips, salsa & margarita party one night, and a Mexican fiesta buffet another, which included plenty of nachos!

I never really thought about it until you mentioned it , Thomas, but yes, bar food would be wonderful!

Whenever I wanted a "snack" I ended up at the pizza counter, but some wings or nachos would have been great.

Sorry its a bar on a ship that already offers many alternatives for eating.

Why not offer trays of snacks at the gangway as some people could be so tired coming back from their tour, that they may not be able to get to the restaurant or buffet to eat later

If I owned a restaurant I could forget having tables and just let people sit in the car park with snacks at every parking place. It would save their lazy as**s getting up and out of the car and coming in for the meal. Oops we already have that its a drive-in, plus who would then get the tip for giving the service., we cant forget that now

I have never been on a ship and that within minutes I could not get up and go and get food from other areas geared towards it. Bars are what they are leave them alone

Davy, it is common here for bars to serve snack foods and offering it would be a welcome addition to a lot of people. How about fish and chips with a pint of your best Ale, huh? What could it hurt?

Regards,
Thomas

Have to agree with Thomas - I think it's a great idea!

Celebrity does serve little snacks at the bars when you order a drink. Not really sports bar snacks, but chips or pretzels. I love it!

Cheers,
Michelle P.

Okay you got me, I can now taste those hot wings whilst watching a game, sounds good.

My real gripe is,,, I want to sometimes get away from food on ship, if it is not there then I am not tempted. Bars are food free havens.

I also want my barman to be concentrating on getting me drink, not running about getting portions of hot wings. You must admit in a busy ship bar, it sometimes feels as if you are never getting served your drink, without food adding to the problem.

Thomas, ale is disgusting (especially warm), followed very closely by Fish and Chips. Now if you had said haggis and neeps with a wee dram, theres a combination for any Sports Bar

I don't really suppose the bartender would be serving the food rather than the drink. A few cute little barmaids with a smile which will melt you would add to my cruising experience. Yeah?

Regards,
Thomas

The bar ROOM would be fine. Just send over the finest hot wings, cold Michelob, and let them be served by the sweetest English girl and I'll never come out.

Until Mrs. Thomas' lawyer calls, of course!

Regards,
Thomas

Next time you are in one of the sports bars, ask if they have snacks. I know on Princess, they don't offer them, but if you ask, they do bring you some peanuts/pretzels.

Kathy and Dave,

Puhleeeeze, pretzels and peanuts are NOT sports bar foods. We're talking hot wings (I like Hooter's wings too, Michelle), nachos, quesadillas, cheese sticks, onion rings, oysters, BBQ shrimp, etc.

Regards,
Thomas

On the Norwegian Dawn they had fish and chips available in the pub to go with your beer. I think there was also fresh popped popcorn.
