What's cruise food like?
7 menus from the main dining room

You probably know at least one person who takes photos of his or her food. Every meal. I'm that person.

And not only do I take photos of my food, I will also take photos of menus if I want to remember them. I did just that during a recent family cruise to Alaska. It was our family's first cruise and frankly, our minds were totally blown by the amount of food and the calibre of the meals we were served.

If you've never cruised, or if you've never cruised Celebrity -- which won five of the top 10 spots in Cruise Critic's list of Best Cruise Ships for Dining 2018 -- here are seven nights of main dining room menus from our Alaska cruise on the Infinity. The offerings within the dotted boxes on the menu are the Celebrity classics offered every night; the rest of the menu changed daily. It was all incredibly delicious, all the more remarkable considering the volume of meals being served on our ship. Read to the end to see a fact sheet detailing the amounts of food served on every seven-night cruise.

We loved our Alaska cruise so much we've booked a Mexico cruise, this one on Princess. I'm anxious to compare menus between the two lines.

Update, August 2019: I recently went on a second Celebrity cruise, on the Eclipse, and was not surprised to find the menus on that ship were nearly identical to the ones on the Infinity. If you're curious, you'll find the Eclipse's menus and food photos here.
