Same boat I was on!
Ahh... I can appreciate really good food, but I can tolerate a lot more too. I'm not fat (I can still buy clothes off the rack, and not in a
specialty store), but I'm not skinny either...so I guess I may not be as picky as some, hehe...
Mostly, I know what I like, and in a buffet, I zero in on those things, and then just eat those. I do remember the pancakes looking rather grim on
that breakfast buffet though...I wasn't going to chance those... When I got my eggs, they were just put out and looked (and tasted) good, but when I
was at the buffet the next day, they weren't looking as appetizing...so maybe had been out longer. The lines were what I didn't like.
On the Disney ship, we could even be seated for breakfast if we wished (and unlike the others, didn't have to pay for soda)...And Pollo's (Disney
onboard restaurant) rivaled one of the best meals I've ever had (Emeril's). They don't tell you, but for those who know, right when you board the
Disney ship, go to the nightclub area. There will be a small table with a person there, taking reservations for that restaurant. It's an upcharge of
about $15 per person, but well worth it. It isn't advertised, at all, so you just have to show up and reserve your spot. It will be out of your
normal dining rotation, so best to do on like a 5 day cruise, so you can experience each restaurant on board. (no casino on Disney ships though, if
you like that, but MUCH better shows)...
A little tip (which I should have told you, if I didn't already)...if you like water, iced tea, lemonade, coffee, and orange juice...there is no need
to purchase soda on Royal Caribbean, if you can make do with all of those. Most cruise lines charge about $7 a day for soda if you get a special cup
and stamp, or you're paying about $2 a pop for it. (On Disney though, soda is included).
