Room Service Lunch 1

We had late dining so it seemed like so many of our meal times were off. Brunch was 11-12; lunch was 3-4; dinner was 8:30 to 10 most days.

Anyways....

While my mom napped, my dad and I ordered room service. Today we noticed that we didn't have the book that had all of the ship information in it (including the room service menu) so we just called room service and they read out some of the menu items. My dad found the room steward that evening to let him know we didn't have the book and one appeared the following day.

My Dad had:

Macaroni and cheese:



cheeseburger:



I had:

Chicken Quesadilia salad:



BLT:



We ordered my mom the turkey sandwich (and she had the other half of my BLT as well when she woke up).

Turkey and cheese sandwich:



I've always been a big fan of room service (to me it is the ultimate in luxury - having food delivered to your room). While the menu isn't extensive, there are a number of good dishes. We ordered room service several times during the week so you'll get to see a lot of different things. The food took about 30 minutes and was hot when it arrived. We tipped a few bucks (usually $1 per entree). We would leave the tray outside the room when we went to dinner (or out for the day when we ordered breakfast) and it would always disappear quickly.

Day 2 Dinner at Lumiere's

Dinner at Lumiere's was very good. We all managed to find a "favourite" that night.

Appetizer #1 - chilled shrimp cocktail



Appetizer #2 - Bacon and Wild mushroom tart. This was kind of like a quiche. Okay but I didn't eat the crust.



Appetizer #3 - French Onion Soup. Both my mom and I really enjoyed this. There was loads of cheese on top and it filled the soup with ooey gooey goodness. Highly recommended.



Entree #1 - Sea Bass with mushroom risotto. Very good - perfectly seared and the risotto was wonderful. A little firm, not mushy and not salty.



Entree #2 - 3 cheese lobster macaroni. This was - well, it was Meh. The lobster bits were tasty but the pasta and the sauce were bland. Nice to try but I also had my mom order the lamb shank because I had heard on the boards that this was only okay (and we have a place we go to that does really excellent lobster macaroni and cheese). No picture of the lamb shank because the assistant server was so quick in cutting up.



Entree #3 - Beef Tenderloin. My dad loved, loved, loved this steak.

Two shots:





Dessert certainly pulled out some winners tonight.

Dessert #1 - Grand marnier souffle - Best Dessert Ever! Light, creamy, gooey and heavenly.



Dessert #2 - Chocolate mousse. I never even got a taste of this so I'm assuming it was good



Dessert #3 - Creme Brulee - good flavour with an excellent brulee.



Dessert #4 - Fruit plate - fresh and tasty.

The Grand marnier souffle is my absolute favorite desert from all of the cruises I have been on. I look forward to it every cruise.

That chicken salad was very good. I ordered the cheese plate later in the week.

There is so much selection. My personal recommendation is - If you don't really like something, don't eat it. There's more food right around the corner that you'll be saying, "Awww, I wish I'd had that instead."

Room Service Breakfast Day 3

So this was our first experience with room service breakfast. I know that it's only continental breakfast foods but it was enough to get us going in the morning.

What we orderedd:

2 fruit bowls (watermelon, pineapple, honeydew and canteloupe)

Bagels - come toasted and dry. You must order butter, jam, etc if you want anything on them.

2 croissants. These were kind of Blah so we never ordered them again.

Muffins - the two muffins they sent were lemon poppyseed and oatmeal. They were good. Fresh and moist.

Assorted drinks - coffee, tea, orange juice, milk and chocolate milk. I ordered the regular milk for my coffee since I don't like half and half.

We also ordered cream cheese, butter, and assorted jams. They sent 1 of each (for 3 bagels). Lesson learned - always mark how many of each you want!



Filling and pleasant, delivered to the room right on time (we placed the card outside the door the night before). The coffee was good from room service - strong but not bitter. The tea came as a carafe of hot water with a decent selection of tea bags. They automatically sent sugar and sugar substitute.

We tipped a few dollars (I think $5) to the delivery person. I have to say - those few dollars were so appreciated.
