    Good to know! Promenade lounge is right above our room! I didn't know about the breakfast foods there, just the evening snacks.

    I guess mine would be the wings in Crown and Fin (Wonder). That became our meet-up spot when we were on an Alaska cruise last summer with friends. 6PM, meet in Crown and Fin for wings ;) They also had veggies and dip, chips and salsa, etc. I generally don't eat a lot of hot wings but for some reason they are so good on the ship. :goodvibes

    The Mango Mountain Hike is delicious! It's also available at Cabanas - in the glass cases.

    I really loved the Tiramisu at Palo brunch. And the chicken fingers were definitely yummy. We didn't spend any time in O'Gills, is the food an extra cost there?

    For the free snacks from the lounges, do you have to order any drink in order to enjoy the food?

    I have been to Cove Cafe to get the sweet treats without ordering anything as they are in a display case. How does it work at the Promenade Lounge or O’Gills? TIA!

    Nope, they are set up buffet style on a warming station with little plates and tongs, serve yourself. Also of note if you are drinking in the bar you can ask the bartender for a dish or peanuts or pretzels, we discovered that on our PC canal cruise. It was exciting because every day they had a different flavor of mini pretzels to sample.

    The weirdly thin bacon and the grilled tomatoes. I have no idea why! I eat them every morning while cruising.

    I had something this weekend at a cookout and thought of this thread. Lays BBQ chips! I can get them anytime any place, but very rarely do. As soon as I ate one I instantly felt like I was on the ship and couldn't wait to be sitting back at the Conched Out bar, drinking a tropical depression and eating some BBQ chips. Maybe it's just the association thing that makes them so good. :goodvibes

    The Krispy Kremes at the Cabanas breakfast buffet and the soft serve ice cream.

    So it wasn't just me? We tend to buy thick cut bacon at home, so "normal" bacon feels "thin" to me, but it seemed like this was even thinner than thin.

    It was good. The tomatoes were probably my favorite thing at breakfast though. Sadly, I cannot convert my partner to tomatoes and mushrooms for breakfast.

    They keep them in the freezer. Honestly, as someone who grew up with Krispy Kreme I do not like the ones on the ship.

    I agree they seem way too sweet compared to the ones stateside.

    Yes, the oatmeal raisin ones are yummy. I also like the room service hot wings.

    i think they're too dry...

    my favorites are the corned beef hash at breakfast, escargot at dinner, and the pizza & burgers on the pool deck. My son is in love with DCL honey BBQ chicken wings.

    food tastes better when it's fre...er, included :)

    Freezing donuts is a travesty.

    On our most recent Magic cruise, we almost skipped the MDR and just ate hot dogs and wings in O'Gill's.
