Lumiere's. Leisurely, vacation luxury. Feels like an event instead of a buffet or rushed cafeteria feel.

Lumiere's on sea days for a relaxing meal and Topsider's Buffet on excursion days.

Topsiders everyday. Eat outside, on own time and decide what to eat by what looks appetizing.

100% agree on this comment for lunch. We loved trying the different themed foods while sitting outside and enjoying the beautiful view. However we found on our two cruises this summer that the food got progressively worse each morning for breakfast. The first day the food was fine and then it was like they gave up. So we had no choice to eat at Lumiere's. The only downside for some people ("luckily" we have a toddler that wakes up at dawn) is that you need to get there early or else you have to wait for a table. Once you are seated the wait isn't that bad since they bring you drinks and breakfast pastries while you want for your food.

Our favourite place to eat breakfast is room service on our verandah. I don't care that the food is ordinary--the setting more than makes up for it!

Topsiders everyday. We don't like the long drawn out breakfast. We want to get on with our day.

Room service, for the privacy and the view.

Palo brunch, for the romance and the quality of the food.

Lumieres. Cannot handle the runny eggs at Topsiders plus I don't want to overeat in the morning--ruins the whole day.

Resist breakfast and eat PALO Brunch on a sea day! We made the mistake of eating a breakfast before going... bad idea. Super stuffed.

We ate at topsiders every morning because DD(1) was in a stage where she woke up at 6am or earlier every day. She was starved by the time the buffet opened up. It and Goofy's Galley were the only things open the earliest (7/730).

This next cruise we will try for Lumiere's/Triton's at least once. The menu looked yummy.

Palo is the very best choice for us.

But can't do that everyday so we love to sit up at Topsiders and enjoy the views.

To avoid the runny eggs BLECK! I order two over easy from the omelet station.

For us it is always up at Topsiders sitting outside. I love the view in the morning looking out over the ocean, so peaceful, it reminds me why we love to cruise.
