In your opinion which cruise line/ship has the best pizza?

Recommended Posts

I've have had pizza on the brain lately & was thinking what others opinions might be? So far in my crusing experience I would have give the nod for best pizza on a cruise ship to the incredible thin crust Pizza aboard the Ruby Princess. Hoping we will find that same quailty of pizza onboard other cruise lines and ships on future sailings...

 

 

Even Dawgs love pizza! ;)

I've only ever cruised Carnival, but I love their pizza. Load the plate up with fries and you have a delicious snack.

Hello Navy,

 

I've never cruised Carnival, only RCL, Celebrity, & most recently Princess.

Good to hear Carnival has great pizza too!

 

 

Here is a short video of the incredibly talented Pizza & pastry chef Antionio ("Tony" from Italy) aboard the Ruby this past March.

 

 

I wish I had a couple slices of that for lunch right now!:)

Just got off the Carnival Pride and Splendor before that. Pizza was good, especially the Chevre (chicken, garlic, goat cheese). Didn't care for the pizza on RCCL.

RCCL's pizza is the worst!

A big slice of leftover Ruby Princess 5 cheese pizza would have been sweet packing in lunch box this morning. Can't say that about the fries! :eek:

Ok, this is the easiest question we have ever answered on CC. Without a doubt the best pizza at sea is to be found on Princess ships. They make the dough from scratch, use specially trained pizza cooks, its fresh, and wonderful. We say this having cruised on 12 differrent lines. There is a reason for the great pizza on Princess. Several years ago there was an Italian cruise line called Sitmar (we loved that line) that had real pizza parlors on all their ships (staffed with Italian cooks). When Princess bought out Sitmar they made a wise decision and decided to keep the pizza parlors (on the existing Sitmar ships). When they realized it was so darn popular they simply kept up the tradition.

So far Celebrity wins. But I have to say, Carnival's ain't bad (and I'm not crazy about Carnival's food in general).

Why is Celebs so good? The crust? The sauce? Cheese or toppings?

Would be interested as we'll be on Celeb in April 11

i vote for princess. icome from new york and princess makes the best. it's made fresh and thin, the way pizza'a suppposed to be. most of the other lines use that boboli garbage, which to me is just thick bread dough, but to alot of people that's real pizza. some people even think pizza hut is real pizza. princess is by the best.

Carnival was definitley the best! I've been on RCCL, NCL, and Costa. All great lines, just not great pizza. And pizza is one of my favorite foods, so I have tried them all!

None of them. Some lines have bad pizza (actually most lines have bad pizza) and some (a few) have not so bad pizza but if you really like pizza, take a cruise to either Chicago or NYC.

Don,

 

I agree there is great pizza to be found all over Chicago. My personal fav is the 5 cheese at Pete's on Western! Having never had pizza in NY I cannot give an honest opinion, it is on my bucket list! I will say, you didn't really answer my question which was:

 

"In your opinion which cruise line/ship has the best pizza?"

 

So a correct answer would be any cruise line of your choosing, you just have to choose one!

Sorry Don "No more pizza for U!"

So far, the Sapphire Princess has had the best pizza for us. My favorite was the white pizza they had when we were going through Glacier Bay.

 

Least favorite was on the Sovereign of the Seas. I couldn't even finish one piece.:rolleyes:

Good to know... that is awesome! I do LOVE Carnival pizza though, and the cruise is way cheaper! I'm with you, though... WISE decision... that almost sounds awesome enough for me to book a Princess cruise... maybe when it's just me and a friend and not my whole family of 5! lol

Why was it called white pizza? Was it made up of only white cheeses?

White pizza doesn't have red sauce and is usually ricotta and mozzarella, maybe some other cheeses.
