The amazing restaurants that you can visit on cruise ships are some of the biggest reasons to go on a cruise vacation. We covered three of our favorite spots a while back, but all of this time away from cruising has left us daydreaming about delicious meals on the seven seas. So let’s take a look at three more great cruise restaurants to whet our appetites. We’ll try not to make you too hungry.
Most people don’t think of Mexican food when they think of cruise cuisine. Bluelguana is a restaurant that aims to change that. As a restaurant available on all Carnival ships, this Cantina has been sampled by thousands of travelers over the years. Everyone comes away satisfied. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but that’s kinda the point. It offers solid burritos and tacos for anyone that gets a craving. They also dish out some great breakfast burritos, and that’s definitely something we can’t complain about. Oh, and did we mention that Bluelguana is included in your fare? Perfect.
Disney isn’t generally a cruise line that is renowned for its food. That’s because the major draw to Disney Cruise Line is the ability to interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. But don’t let that fool you: there are some seriously great food options on their ships. One of our favorite spots is the Animator’s Palate, a restaurant that is equal parts whimsy and class. The spot is designed to evoke the fun feeling of animation itself, but the food is quite serious. The black truffle pasta is regarded as one of the finest dishes you can experience on a cruise ship. This is a spot that is just as great for the kids as it is for adults, and that’s something that is seriously appreciated on a Disney ship.
Rudi’s Sel de Mer
At its core, cruise cuisine is all about seafood. To take a cruise without eating some fresh seafood means that you’re missing out on the full experience. And as far as fish on a cruise goes, Rudi’s Sel de Mer on Holland America cruises is as good as it gets. It received the title of Best Seafood from Cruise Critic for good reason. There is a French influence throughout all the food, and all of it is delicious. Just take a look at the menu and try not to salivate: marinated lobster served with grapefruit, grilled shrimp served on a saffron rice pilaf, smoked salmon with a cucumber-apple tzatziki…. Yeah, we’re hungry too.
If you’re a foodie, you definitely can’t go wrong with any of these spots. There really is nothing better than enjoying a great meal on a cruise ship!
