Question about Meals

For the dinners that are included with our trip, what all does that entail? Do we get an appetizer, main dish, drink, & dessert? Is the full menu offered or do we have just a few choices? Thanks!

Which trip are you taking? On our trips most of the meals were buffets. There were some that were family style and some box lunches. On both of our trips, the adult dinner on Junior Adventurer night we ordered from the menu. In Alaska we had our choice of appetizer, main dish and dessert from a small list of 3 or 4 choices for each. I don't remember if it was the same in Costa Rica or if we had the full menu to choose from. I thought the choices were sufficient.

In Germany, there were no buffets that I recall - normally just a subset of the menu. One meal was family style - LOTS of food! I never felt like it was not enough - I believe it was normally a choice of soup or salad, a choice of main course and dessert. Occasionally, wine was included, but assume that it's not (except usually for the welcome dinner and farewell dinner).

I think each trip will be slightly different based on destination and restaurant.

On my Trip

Dinner the first night was appetizers that were served family style at the table, we didn't get a choice. There was a choice of 4 different entrees for dinner.


The second included dinner we had a wine tasting with finger foods then went to the restaurant for dinner, we had a choice of 2 entrees

The farewell dinner was a buffet.

Dessert was included at all the dinners.

In reading various itineraries, and I may be wrong but I think the menus for all the included meals are limited menus.

The only meal I've had on an ABD that was not a limited menu or a buffet was the 'Junior Adventurer night' on Southwest Splendors. We had our choice of anything off the menu at the Red Cliffs Lodge.

The nature of each meal depends on where you are, what activities they have planned, etc.
