Dining Question

So I'm sailing on the Nov 10 Fantasy and I'm a pretty picky eater. I've seen pictures of the menus and don't know of much that interests me ... is it possible to order off of the kids menu at all? Also I heard that there is always chicken or steak at every restaurant.. is that true? How flexible are the waiters with food preparations if i don't want something/want to add something? Sorry for so many questions! Thanks!

Yes, you can order off the kids' menu. The waiters are flexible. People often ask them to substitute veggies -- leave off the broccoli (or whatever) and add a baked potato. We've sat with other couples at dinner and one of the guys ordered a steak. every. single. night. yawn.

Anyone can order off any menu--adults off kids, kids off adults, etc.

Each night there is grilled steak, chicken breast, and some sort of fish--just plain. You can have it served with a baked potato, veges, etc. You can order most items off the menu with sauces on the side. You can also get a vege or side from one main dish with a different main dish. For instance if they have a meat with mashed potato and a fish with veges and you want the steak + veges, no problem.

MOST servers are very cooperative. If you get one who isn't, talk to the head server and it should be fixed.

You can order off the kids menu. There is usually a plain steak or chicken option too (maybe it is listed at the very bottom, I can't remember). Just ask your server and they will let you know what your options are.

I generally don't care for the salad options and I usually order a Caesar Salad (not on the menu) with every dinner.

Thanks for that info. I'm not a picky eater, but I love caesar salad and was a bit disappointed that I rarely saw it on the menus. I will have to ask my servers about getting this.

You can get a caesar salad at any lunch or dinner....and you can also get it with a chicken breast at lunch. You are right that it is often not on the menu, but this is one of those "we always have it" items.
