Dining Room Food on Cruises to Iceland and Norway

Recommended Posts

We have booked a cruise to Iceland and Norway in 2020 and my husband has some concerns as to the food that will be being served in the dining room and/or the buffet.  The last couple of Princess cruises we have been on seem to use a fair amount of the "local" cuisine which is expected but unfortunately  it hasn't been particularly good and seemed to be a lot of repeats. Most recently we were on the Island Princess for a Panama Canal partial transit and seemed like there was a lot of poorly prepared "Caribbean"  items on the menu and we heard so many passengers asking for "just some identifiable food"! For the Baltics and Northern Europe,  Princess was heavy on cateering to the Brits' tastes which was a shame.  Has anyone recently cruised to Iceland and Norway and if so, how did the menus seem?

We went two years ago. Menus seemed normal. Princess stocks from their own suppliers. Princess does add items to their menu that suit their passenger base, but plenty of North American standards if that is what you are inferring.

Our 2018 Iceland and Norway cruises on the Pacific Princess were pretty much normal Princess fare. Nothing local to speak of. It seems to me it's more the Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises where they incorporate more local fare.

We were on the 14-day cruise to Norway in June of this year and they used the same menus from the British Isles/Baltic cruises. The bottom right corner of the menus stated the region and year. The menus seemed like most of the normal Princess fare, but had a bit of a British theme at times.
