The first thing we did once we boarded the Jewel was to drop the carry on bags off and head to lunch in the Azura main dining room (MDR). NCL always has one MDR open on boarding day for lunch. We love starting our cruise with a sit-down meal and not having to deal with the rush of people to the Garden Cafe which is also open.
Here are our choices:
Greek Romaine Salad
Poached Atlantic Salmon
Open Air Beef Burger
Madagascar Vanilla Bean Creme Caramel
Day One Lunch Menu
Everything we ate was good, and this would be the pattern for the rest of the trip, the food was always good, I don't think we ever had anything we didn't like.
Cheryl and my Granddaughter in the MDR
Day One Appetizers and Classic Entrees
Featured Entrees and Wines
Desserts and Coffees
Here are pictures of our choices.
Shrimp and Crab Cake
Apple Pie Ala Mode
Warm Chocolate Lava Cake
Somewhere we missed some of our choices, but again everything was nice and the service was good. We ate early so that we could watch the early show and then go out for the sail away.
