Food on the Cruise Ship

Filed under: — admin @ 12:30 PM

These photos are from the Lido Cafe where you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner or simply snack. Jeannie had to eat dinners in the Rotterdam Dining Room where they would serve her from a gluten free menu. Her breakfast came from room service.

As you look at these photos, know this: There are TWO exact same rows of this food service, one on the port side and one on the starboard side of the Lido! Also, there is the Mexican food counter in the pool area AND a pizza counter in the aft Retreat area! The ice cream and dessert bar crosses between the two at one end. Two separate areas make coffee and iced tea available. Dining tables are placed on each side by the windows or you can carry-out to the pool area. It’s pig-out heaven!


They take good care of you here!
