Gotta be the Bitter and Blanc - bittersweet chocolate on bottom then a very light bread pudding topped with a creamy white chocolate sauce. As I recall, it is served only one night so be sure to ask for two:D

Luv the lamb. Lobster is OK, but I prefer the hole thing.

 

I am with Don, I also prefer the hole thing, but when actually dining in the dining room:

 

We loved the Bitter and Blanc as a dessert (served on Wednesday, I believe) Their Creme Brulee was also great.

One you can drive down the street and get and one you can't but they are my two favorites. They are prime rib and pumpkin soup.

LOL, I will say that is the first time I have heard that yogurt was someone's favorite food on the ship.... I'll have to remember to "try the yogurt" :D I'm assuming you get this at breakfast in the dining room???

When you order the flourless chocolate cake, order some vanilla ice cream as well. I did, and everyone at my table was jealous.

I can't say it's the best thing on board because so much of it is soooo good but I love the bacon.

It is meaty and they don't usually cook it to death like so many places do. I'm not normally much of a breakfast eater but I really enjoy the breakfast buffet.

I love to take scrambled eggs, hash browns and bacon and mix it up together. If they only had tortillas I'd be in breakfast taco heaven.

 

One of the things about taking cholesterol lowering drugs is that you can get away with a meal like that, every once in a while. :)

My DW probably would say the hockeypuck hashbrowns.

 

Me? I never have had a favorite food on or off the ship, but on the last cruise

I made some parents mad when their kids imitated my breakfast one morning.

 

"Rice Krispies and hot chocolate over vanilla frozen yogurt":D

Don't knock it till ya tried it. It is vactation.

I'll have to get back to on that. Something about octopus balls (no - not that kind - but still) on Iron Chef just made me lose my appetite. For a New York second or two. ;)
