The food on Queen Victoria is excellent. One can choose to eat in the Britannia restaurant - which is silver service all the time ie. breakfast, lunch and dinner. Or can choose the more relaxed style of the Lido restaurant which is self service.
Grandeur of the Seas

The food was out of this world. We ate mainly in the Meridian Restaurant where the service was second to none. It was like dining in a very plush restaurant every meal time.
